USA: 4 Men Armed With Rifles And Semi-Automatic Pistols, Firing Down The Block In West Philadelphia Injuring 13yo And Two 16yo's. 6yo Boy Found Naked, Locked In Dog Cage Inside Home.


Murder is already a crime. We don't have a gun problem. We have a lack of self-control problem, a criminal supremacists problem and a Commie Democrats local district attorney's, judges, parole officers soft on crime problem, not doing shit to catch the criminals as in crimes go unsolved, and when they do catch the criminals, they immediately release them back onto the streets to allow them to continue terrorizing the community. These same people siding with the criminals want to take away YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms in order to defend yourself, your business, your family and home against these criminal supremacists and a tyrannical government. Remember, criminals DO NOT obey laws. Therefore, criminals will have access to guns through gun trafficking venues and you will be left defenseless with no guns because the same government siding with criminals THEY'RE ALLOWING to terrorize you with guns said they wanted to keep you safe from guns. The anti-gun prosecutors are not even prosecuting gun crimes. But god forbid you kill an intruder, robber or rapist in self-defense in your home or on your private property, these same Commie Democrat district attorneys or prosecutors will charge you with murder and lock you up for years in prison.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police released surveillance video on Thursday morning of a shooting that injured three teens earlier in the week.

The shooting happened at about 4 p.m. Monday on the 1500 block of N. Frazier Street.

Police say a 13-year-old and two 16-year-olds were injured after more than 60 rounds were fired.

Surveillance video shows four men, armed with rifles and semi-automatic pistols, firing down the block before running on Lansdowne Avenue toward 56th Street.

One of the guns was an automatic weapon.

"You see an automatic gun going off in broad daylight. Broad daylight on the streets of the city of Philadelphia. Four males just shooting up the block with no care in the world," said Capt. James Kearney. "It's very concerning, it's disappointing, and these people need to be held accountable."

The men were all wearing face masks during the shooting.

Police also stated on Thursday that the four suspects were dropped off at the scene in a grey Honda CRV by a fifth suspect, who was behind the wheel.

A CRV was found two days later, burned out in Belmont. Investigators are looking into whether or not it is the same car used in this shooting.

"We believe somebody out there in that community, in that neighborhood, may have seen something, may have seen a small piece of this puzzle to help my investigators solve this case," said Kearney.

Two of the three victims remain in critical condition at local hospitals. The third is in stable condition. Police are unsure why these teens were targeted.

"That's our city right now. We've got to be talking about this 24/7, all of us," said Pastor Aaron Campbell with Level Up Philly.

Level Up is a program for at-risk youths in Philadelphia. Campbell, who founded the program, says he knows one of the victims.

Action News talked to Campbell the day after the incident. He said that since then, at least 10 kids have come to him to talk because the violence is getting so bad.

"What takes place in the mind of a young person that makes them feel that grabbing a gun and trying to end someone's life is the way to go?" he questioned.

Police say they recovered one gun, a 45 caliber, from the scene. But, they still need the public's help to find the shooters.

Anyone with information about the shooting or the suspects is asked to call police at 215-686-8477.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A mother is being questioned after police made a horrifying discovery in Philadelphia's Tacony neighborhood on Thursday afternoon.

Officers responded to the scene after police say two young girls were found half-dressed outside a home on the 4200 block of Glenview Street.

"They have pampers on. They have no shirts, no pants, they have no shoes. They're screaming, it's raining, it's cold. They're screaming for their mother and father," recalled Hector Perez, a neighbor who found the children when he came home from work.

When police made their way inside the residence, a 6-year-old boy was found nude inside a locked dog cage with a blanket and pillow.

"When officers arrived on the block they saw two girls, ages four and five, that were partially dressed outside in the rain. The officers were able to pick them up and gain entry inside the property. Once they got in there they came upon a 6-year-old that was locked inside of a dog cage," said Sgt. Eric Gripp with the Philadelphia Police Department.

Action News has learned that the children are related.

Police say there were also two adults inside the home at the time: an 80-year woman in a wheelchair and a man in his 40s. The adults are believed to be the grandmother and uncle of the children.

Sources say the uncle and the boy have intellectual disabilities.

Tom McNamee lives a few doors down and says the Department of Human Services has been to the home before.

"Due to State confidentiality laws, DHS cannot comment whether or not a family has any current or past DHS involvement," the department said in a statement to Action News.

No charges have been filed at this time, and police are still questioning the mother.

"This an absolutely tragic situation. We don't know entirely everything that's going on, we have a long investigation ahead of us," said Gripp.

The children were taken to an area hospital to be evaluated.

District Attorney Larry Krasner stirred up controversy last week after he said Philadelphia is not in crisis overs its historic gun violence levels. Monday, he apologized for those comments.
Philadelphia has a terrible crisis BECAUSE of his support for the criminals. His solution is not to arrest the criminals, zero bail, no jail for criminals and NO CRIMES SOLVED. He like all Commie Democrats say they hate guns and we must take guns off the street. BUT they LOVE LOVE LOVE career criminals who use guns regularly to terrorize the cities they are in charge of protecting. This DA was a "civil rights" attorney before he became Philadelphia DA. This is who you voted for to be your protector. The people shouting, "No justice, no peace." are truly getting no peace now being hunted down daily by career criminals who are or were juvenile delinquents. What did you think would happen when you took away police? Harmony? You effectively made your community a GUN FREE ZONE and all of the career criminals celebrated because now they knew they had free reign over the town. (emphasis mine)

He Sued Police 75 Times. Democrats Want Him as Philadelphia’s Top Prosecutor.
written by Alan Feuer
June 17, 2017

PHILADELPHIA — Larry Krasner has sued the Philadelphia Police Department 75 times. He has promised not to seek the death penalty. He has even called law enforcement “systemically racist.”

Now, in a twist that would promote the gadfly to the top of the food chain, he is poised to become the district attorney of Philadelphia.

Mr. Krasner, a veteran civil rights lawyer, defeated six opponents — all of them with more crime-fighting chops — in a Democratic primary last month, winning nearly 40 percent of the vote and becoming the unexpected favorite in this heavily Democratic city.

Unlike most would-be top prosecutors, who run on promises of locking up the bad guys, Mr. Krasner campaigned against mass incarceration and what he described as the “failed culture” of the Philadelphia district attorney’s office.

And so he has offered up a menu of initiatives aimed at fighting what he called “the criminalization of poverty.” He has promised to cut down on the prosecution of minor cases, divert drug addicts into treatment and ignore, where appropriate, what he described as draconian sentencing guidelines. He has also said he would abolish money bail — which often leads to the jailing of poor defendants while wealthier ones go free — and would decline to seek charges in any case he deemed to be based on an illegal stop and search.

This agenda has left an opening for his opponent in the November election, Beth Grossman, a career local prosecutor who was for years a Democrat before becoming the Republican nominee. Ms. Grossman, too, has promised to overhaul the city’s justice system by cutting back on the criminal prosecutions of small-time drug offenders. But she chided Mr. Krasner for going too far.

When he entered the race, he had no experience with politics or fighting crime, and only two paid staff members — both of whom had worked for Senator Bernie Sanders. But he eventually received support of more than $1 million from an independent group that was funded by George Soros, a billionaire who has given assistance to a number of candidates in district attorney races across the country. The group flooded the airwaves with television ads on his behalf. 

A few days before he won the primary, Mr. Krasner appeared onstage at a campaign event in a sober shirt and necktie and performed a cover of the Clash’s “Clampdown” with Sheer Mag, a local punk band. The anarchist anthem was meant to appeal to his base of grass-roots activists, who know him well from his highly visible representation of protest groups like Act Up, the AIDS awareness advocates, and Black Lives Matter in their confrontations with the police.
