Big City Democrats have effectively decriminalized crime, and as a result, Democrat-run Philadelphia is seeing the same widespread thievery and looting that destroyed Democratic-run cities such as San Francisco, Portland, Beverly Hills, Seattle, and Chicago.
Yes, the City of Brotherly Love is now getting what it wanted:
“Police say that more than 100 teens broke into several stores in Philadelphia this week and stole things,”
“NBC10 says that the Footlocker and also Apple stores close to 15th and Chestnut streets, as well as the Lululemon shop in Center City, were all broken into.”
“Many videos of the theft were shared on social media. The videos show police attempting to apprehend individuals while windows are broken and things are stolen.”
The reason for all of this? A judge in Philadelphia dropped the man slaughter charges concerning a police officer who shot a driver. Bodycam footage revealed that the driver had a knife hidden. The police officer says he thought it was a gun because he only observed the black handle on the knife. The defense stated the charges should never have been brought, and the judge agreed with it. The looting then started, mostly without violence.
Also, this from the New York Post:
“A well-known social media influencer called “Meatball” live-streamed the crazy looting spree that hit the city center of Philadelphia overnight, but she seems to have been arrested while at the same time cheering on the thieves.”
“Meatball, whose actual name is Dayjia Blackwell, posted pictures and videos on her stories on Instagram showing how she happily robbed several stores, such as an Apple Store, a retailer known as Foot Locker, a Lululemon, and a booze store. Blackwell yelled, ‘Free iPhones! Free iPhones!’ and then filmed folks showing off their stolen tech.”
A lot more videos.
One thing that all of these videos have in common is that no one seems to be afraid of being caught or fighting the police. Most of them aren’t even afraid of showing their face. Why? These people know that in their city, Democrats only bring charges against police officers and not real crooks.
"It just started and we ain't finished!"

Democrats let this horrible thing happen to themselves so that Donald Trump wouldn’t be re-elected in 2020. Arson and theft were made less illegal to stop Donald Trump. To stop Donald Trump, it became okay to wear a mask in public. To stop Donald Trump, the cops lost money and morale. To stop Donald Trump, everybody had been locked down and forced to work from home. This left city areas empty, except for crazy people and drug users.
