Philadelphia Police say that nearly 60 teenage thugs rampaged through the streets, attacking innocent people and ransacking stores.
On July 4, 2019, at approximately 10:00 PM, a large group of approximately sixty teenagers stormed a Walgreens store. Once inside, the group ran around knocking items off of the shelves and running out of the store without paying for merchandise. Some members of the thugs threw merchandise at store employees, resulting in injuries.

South Street turned into a chaotic scene on the Fourth of July. Police say dozens of teenagers terrorized businesses and caused thousands of dollars in damages.
Many of the people Eyewitness News spoke to believe the crowd originated from Penn’s Landing and traveled up South Street, gaining in size and causing nearly $7,000 in destruction, according to police.
Starting around 10 p.m. Thursday, much of South Street went into lockdown.

“Multiple people — minors, adults, a whole lot of crowd just moved up from South Street, lower end from Penn’s Landing,” City Diner manager Brianna Lostritto said.
As the crowd moved west on South Street, businesses still open at the time either chose or were advised by police to lock their doors.
“They had to lock our doors up. They blocked our doors from people coming in,” Lostritto said. More
Being a teen shouldn’t give them a free pass for theft and vandalism. Battery definitely crosses the line. Use the video to identify and throw the book at them.
If all of the thieves are not arrested and prosecuted, federal intervention is needed to arrest and convict those holding offices of trust and responsibility for public safety.
This is precisely why businesses refuse to locate in these districts. There is no hope for urban blight until law and order have been restored. The root of this problem is the total destruction of the black family, as 70% of births are to single mothers.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
