Leave it to the UK’s Daily Mail to report what the American mainstream media won’t. This weekend in Philadelphia, a lawless mob literally drove donuts around a police squad car and the cops did nothing. What’s more, the same video shows a huge number of the mob hopping on the squad car and taunting the police inside.
Once more, police made no arrests.
Philladelphia’s Mayor Jim Kenney is a proud member of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against
Illegal Guns. Imagine the irony of this video, depicting the lawless cesspool that Kenney’s city has become, nudging untold thousands more Americans to go out and purchase their first firearm for personal defense. Congratulations, Mr. Mayor. You’re America’s gun salesman of the week.
After all, for non-gun owners in particular, nothing undermines the belief that the police maintain law and order like a mob brazenly breaking the law in front of helpless police. Of course, the cherry on top is then taunting cops by jumping on their squad cars without fear of either the police officers or potential enforcement action.
If a mob can do donuts around a cop car, does anyone think that the City of Brotherly Love will do better against a similar mob rampaging through a neighborhood, stealing what they want and harming anyone that gets in their way?
Here’s the opening paragraphs of the Daily Mail’s report.
A Dodge Charger muscle car was filmed spinning donuts around a cop car outside Downtown Philadelphia’s famous city hall Saturday night.
The shameless act of hooliganism was snapped by an onlooker from the window of a nearby tall building just before midnight, with the car screeching around the Ford police cruiser multiple times as passengers sat on the vehicle’s open windows.
‘No f****** way,’ onlookers could be heard yelling as the car drives by. ‘Oh sh**, oh sh**.’ Another onlooker was filmed clambering onto the cop car’s bonnet moments later.
Despite the dangerous behavior, Philly PD did not make any arrests.
And here’s the video:
With over ten million Americans already having bought their first gun(s) in the last two years, plenty more remain on the cusp of voting with their wallets and taking the plunge.
Sights like those depicted in this video sell far more guns than all slick advertisements in any dead tree magazines combined.
