Two leftist organizations teamed up to block rush hour traffic on a major freeway moving through the nation’s capital for a “Black education” demonstration. The event appeared to focus on short chants and obstructing Washington, D.C. area workers from getting to their jobs.

OccupyDC and FreedomFightersDC teamed up to shut down Interstate 395 during rush hour traffic for what they called a “Black education” event. Video tweeted by an independent journalist shows the group blocking the freeway while chanting, “Who’s streets? Our streets” and “Who’s highway? Our highway.”

Some were not happy with the actions taken to block Monday morning rush-hour traffic.
@MayorBowser see they’re doing this for black education! That makes this okay, right??? Something tells me they don’t care about that and instead just like the free pass it gives them for being superspreaders of assholery.

Protesting in the street that has been blocked off for safety has been the way things have happened before. But going on an interstate and forcing people to be trapped in their cars is a violation of their rights. What is wrong with your brain?

The handful of protesters eventually moved off the freeway to 16th NW near the White House.

7 Open Leftist Threats That Political Terror Is Coming To America Whether Trump Wins Or Not

Examples of hostilities toward Trump and his supporters abound, but leftists' threats of terror are even greater should Biden win the presidency.


Stella Morabito

By Stella Morabito
OCTOBER 26, 2020

Many leftists have directed some deeply disturbing rhetoric at conservatives and Trump supporters in recent months, claiming President Trump’s bombast is responsible for the political polarization of today’s America. This is pure nonsense.

Sure, Trump talks about MS-13 as “animals,” Antifa as “thugs,” and Hillary Clinton as crooked enough to “be in jail.” His supporters know his presentation to be a bombastic and theatrical schtick, but he never threatens any group of voters.

By contrast, some ominous tones, even homicidal and terrorist tones, are coming from the mainstream left. Increasingly, through mainstream media and Big Tech, high-profile leftists are speaking openly about violence to be inflicted on Trump and all his supporters.

I’m not talking specifically about the Antifa and Black Lives Matter street violence we’ve seen in places like Denver and Portland, which includes outright murders of Trump supporters. I’m referring here to voices that normalize and promote open terror against any freedom-respecting person who has different views from those blessed by left-wing leaders, media, and Big Tech. Seven examples are included below.

1. A Think Tank Guy Should Meet…A Firing Squad

First, in a chilling Twitter incident, agitator Nils Gilman called for the execution of journalist and former Trump adviser Michael Anton. Gilman publicly stated, “Michael Anton is the Robert Brasillach of our times and deserves the same fate.” Brasillach was a Nazi collaborator in France whose fate was execution by firing squad. Neither Gilman nor Twitter took down the tweet, despite many protests, including a public letter of grave concern from the Claremont Institute, where Anton is a senior fellow.
Michael Anton is the Robert Brasillach of our times and deserves the same fate A former Trump official dreamed up a George Soros-funded ‘coup’ and QAnon believes it
— Nils Gilman (@nils_gilman) September 21, 2020
Gilman is head of the George Soros-funded Berggruen Institute and a co-founder of the “Transition Integrity Project,” which war-gamed the ouster of Trump from office regardless of whether he wins re-election. Anton’s crime, in Gilman’s mind, was publishing an article about Gilman’s project in the American Mind, titled “The Coming Coup.”

Why is Gilman’s Sept. 21 death threat against Anton still up on Twitter an entire month later? Will it remain up after the election?

2. Shoot This CEO For Not being Woke Enough

Second, former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo objected to the company Coinbase’s decision to ease up on forcing employees to engage in social justice agendas such as critical race theory. Costolo accused Coinbase’s CEO Brian Armstrong of being among the “me-first capitalists” who would be the first lined up and “shot in the revolution.”

Costolo, who has 1.5 million Twitter followers, added that he would “happily provide video commentary” of the executions. The tweet has disappeared, although there is no mention of it being deleted. One response comes with a screenshot though:
Did you ever apologize for this? Would like to take you seriously… but this kind of talk is so abhorrent to me: pic.twitter.com/zaJ8fqc2D5
— Auggernaut (@augustinbralley) October 6, 2020
3. If Trump Loses, His Supporters Remain ‘An Existential Threat’

Third, if the Democrats take over the reins of power — in an election, a coup, or a bought-and-paid-for “color revolution” — what happens to those who have supported Trump?

Take a look at this Aug. 1 Salon article, which argues that even if Biden wins, Trumpism “will survive the election and continue to be an existential threat.”

Author Paul Rosenberg examines the arguments in writings by John Feffer and other anti-Trump pundits who believe there is a lot of work to be done to force the “de-trumpification” of America. They compare Trump supporters to Nazis or the Baathists of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and describe America under Trump as a “pathocracy.”

Rosenberg cites Feffer, who says the solution is “to drain the swamp Trump created, bring criminal charges against the former president and his key followers, and launch a serious campaign to change the hearts and minds of Americans who have been drawn to this president’s agenda.” He even brings up the Nuremberg trials as instructive, trials that resulted in death sentences for 37 Nazis.

That isn’t good enough, however, according to Feffer. It’s important to go after “low-level participants” to root out Trumpism. It recommends enforcing this changing of “hearts and minds” so that there is “an attitudinal shift that could lead to lasting transformation.” This is not a far cry from re-education camps and coercive thought reform.

The formula appears to be threefold and on a large scale, “the scale on which we need to be thinking,” according to the Salon article. First, divide the so-called redeemable Trump supporters from those intent on keeping America great. Second, send those who are problematic to virtual education camps. Third, stomp out all the ideas the power elites don’t like.

In the same vein, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who has 1 million Twitter followers, recommended that a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” be established to rid the nation of Trumpism.
When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.
— Robert Reich (@RBReich) October 17, 2020
4. Prosecute Everyone Who Supported Trump

Fourth, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann recently ranted that everyone associated with Trump, including his enablers and supporters, must be “prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society.” To many, Olbermann might seem to be a has-been, but he has nearly 1 million Twitter followers. He represents the viewpoint of many in the propaganda media that control more than 90 percent of the megaphones. Olbermann referred to Trump supporters as “maggots” who needed to be chased from the stage.

5. Trump Supporters ‘Must Be Eradicated From Society’

Fifth, on Aug. 4, 2019, a supposed religious scholar and CNN contributor Reza Aslan announced on Twitter — a tweet still up as of Oct. 22 — that all Trump supporters “must be eradicated from society” along with Trump, and that there is “no longer any room for nuance.” Aslan has nearly 300,000 followers.

His extremely defamatory and threatening tweet reads verbatim: “The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters — ALL OF THEM — are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And his evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.”
After today there is no longer any room for nuance. The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters – ALL OF THEM – are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And this evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.
— Reza Aslan (@rezaaslan) August 4, 2019
6. Openly Attacking Members of Congress

Sixth, the organized violence against guests at the Republican National Convention as they left the White House in August showed new levels of open hostility against the right. Most notably, the mob swarmed Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and his wife, who were convinced they would have been severely injured or killed if there were no police presence.

This represents a ramping up of the Antifa and Black Lives Matter attempt to normalize extreme violence against any perceived political opponent. Agitators even set up a mock guillotine on the spot with an effigy of Trump in it.

7. Plots to Dox Political Opponents

Seventh, the left is now using doxing tools to invite widespread targeting of Trump voters. A recently unveiled database called “The Media Manipulation Casebook” is described as a means of gathering personal information that exposes anonymous Trump supporters. NBC News reporter Brandy Zadrozny appears to use it to find “addresses, property records … even Amazon wish lists” that can be a “goldmine for learning about what a person reads, buys, and wants.”

At the same time, open-source materials, such as donations tracked by the Federal Election Commission, are being used to invite the targeting of Trump donors, either by name or address on a hostile site. The information can be used much like the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate map,” which triggered the attempted murders at the Family Research Council and the GOP baseball practice.

Terror Is Predictably Increasing

Examples of hostilities toward Trump supporters abound. Many are connected to the potential for violence should Trump win re-election. As the examples above show, however, the threat of terror is even greater should he lose. If Democrats gain control of the White House and other branches, the left has spoken openly of their intent to punish a huge swath of Americans with a program that threatens to cancel them, impose thought-reform programs on them, and worse.

How far will this go? Members of the domestic terror organization Weather Underground, headed up by 1960s radical Bill Ayers, explained some 50 years ago that when “the revolution” came, a lot of Americans would have to be located to education camps. This sounds eerily like what Reich and others are now proposing after they oust Trump. Weather Underground members said that those who didn’t comply despite re-education, which they estimated would include about 25 million Americans, would have to be eradicated, as in killed.

Of course, that could never happen here, right? Just remember that history is littered with societies filled with decent, normal people who descended into chaos and murder, often incited by propaganda from a heavily controlled media. However unlikely this seems, we must pay close attention to these patterns so we don’t repeat some of the darkest days of history.

Post-election 2020: Two studies say all hell to break loose
By Bill Livingstone

Two recent reports, when combined, paint a dark pathway for America in the coming weeks, a nation set on fire by multiple contentious court battles and widespread daily protests.

The 79 Days Report, by the Claremont Institute and the Texas Policy Foundation, illuminates possible election legal battles on the horizon and how they might play out in the courts. The bottom line? The litigation will be time-consuming and combative. There's no fast-forward button to speed up the process. It concludes:
  • On election night, the winner will not be known "due to millions of uncounted mail-in ballots in 6 battleground states."
  • Given there's no clear victor, "intense court fights" can be expected that could result "in a struggle right up to the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress. Uncertainty could extend even beyond this as decisions for both the presidency and vice presidency are battled out in Congress and before the U.S. Supreme Court."
The second report, "Hold the Line: A Guide to Defending Democracy," is a how-to manual for organizing massive protests, produced by a group of hard-left "researchers, organizers, and activists." The report encourages people to early assemble into clusters, to identify the "power holders" they want to "influence," and then make plans on how to achieve their goals.

The report calls for "large-scale protests," if the Trump administration and its allies prevent all votes from being counted, allows ballots to be tossed out, or fails to "remedy irregularities" in the voting.

The significance of the report lies in the level of preplanning and pre-targeting. In 2016, most on the left believed that Hillary Clinton would be victorious and were caught off guard when Donald Trump won instead. Yet within hours, activists were able to organize protests in city centers, brandishing signs declaring Trump "Not My President."

Every day thereafter, over the next several weeks, demonstrations were mounted in New York City; Boston; Los Angles; Atlanta; Chicago; Philadelphia; Portland; San Francisco; Seattle; and Washington, D.C. – all managed by Democrat mayors.

Now, four years later, you can be certain that the left won't be caught napping again on Election Night. They've had months to prepare and are ready to do battle. The many protests, riots, looting, and violent attacks the past six months are but a prelude to the coming main event.

The kickoff is likely to be the U.S. Senate vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. Don't be surprised to see large-scale demonstrations against her confirmation, piggybacking on the recent Women's March, as a means to influence still undecided voters. The protests also have the advantage of pushing competing news stories to the sidelines, such as the Biden family corruption scandal.

Once the demonstrations begin, they will not end anytime soon; they will only become more inflamed, unless Joe Biden wins the election by a blowout, which few expect to happen.

Given that the 79 Days Report is accurate, that many ballots will not be tabulated until days after the voting concludes, protesters will flood into city streets demanding that all ballots be counted, while lawyers file suits to extend or block voting deadlines and accept or throw out ballots that appear from nowhere.

In 2000, the election was put on hold when George Bush won Florida by a narrow margin, triggering an automatic recount. Lawyers battled in courtrooms for six weeks until a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court finally ended the squabbling.

Jumping ahead to 2020, instead of one contested state election, there could be six or more, vastly multiplying the number of court cases. The most intense demonstrations are likely to occur in four of the swing states headed by Democrat governors in an effort to sway legal rulings.

The Hold the Line report lays bare the leftists' ground game. Activists are locked and loaded. They will have pre-selected targets. Instead of massing in large groups, as in 2016, they plan to disperse to multiple sites — possibly homes of elected officials and judges, political pols, the police, anyone they deem to be a "power holder."

Add to this volatile mix the well organized and funded Antifa and BLM activists, who have been perfecting their violent tactics since the death of George Floyd.

Black-masked operators can be expected to infiltrate the protests to turn nonviolent events into infernos.

Based on the two reports, the cumulative impact? In multiple cities, in multiple locations, there will be unprecedented demonstrations, many violent. The police will likely be overwhelmed, unable to respond to the dispersed protests — or prevented from responding — fueling fear and chaos.

Every court decision creates a new rallying cry for the left...and maybe the right, too. The longer it takes to resolve election disagreements, the more violence and chaos, metastasizing like a cancerous growth. The more things that get out of hand, the more out of hand things might get.

The Hold the Line report posits an election outcome that's fraudulent, where all the votes are not counted and irregularities remedied. Given this scenario, it calls for "another form of power to correct the balance," an all-out revolution, in which large numbers of people participate in strikes, boycotts, protests, and other nonviolent actions, "until a democratic and accountable government is restored."

In other words, they want to shut down society until President Trump is forced from office, not unlike the 28 Days of Resistance in Tunisia that toppled President El Abidine Ben Ali and the 25 January Revolution in Egypt that ousted President Hosni Mubarak.

Such an event seems highly implausible. But if Trump is re-elected, no matter what happens, the left will claim the election was stolen, not unlike 2016, opening the curtain to four more years of protests and attacks on his presidency.

Trump Resistance Plans ‘Mass Mobilization’ After Election To Shut Down The Country If Biden Doesn’t Win
Trump Resistance Plans ‘Mass Mobilization’ After Election To Shut Down The Country If Biden Doesn’t Win

Shut Down DC's 'Strategic framework for action following the 2020 election' sketches out their plans for rioting and attacking American institutions and life unless and until Joe Biden is installed as president.

Joy Pullmann

By Joy Pullmann
OCTOBER 20, 2020

Riot and protest instigators plan to “make sure Trump leaves the White House” by any means necessary after the Nov. 3 election, according to website posts from the group Shut Down DC and their allies. “[W]e’re making plans to be in the streets before the polls even close, ready to adapt and respond to whatever comes our way,” the group says on its website currently.

“Trump has shown that he will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on power. Trump will not leave office without mass mobilization and direct action,” an Oct. 13 version of the same web page reads, according to Internet Archive records.

The group linked to protests at the homes of Trump administration officials tells its DC-area supporters to “Come to Black Lives Matter Plaza” on election night “to create serious disruption if Trump really tries to steal the election!” Black Lives Matter Plaza is the site of repeated anti-Trump summer rioting and defacement of the historic Saint John’s Church one block away from the White House.

On the page, Shut Down DC sketches out its plans for election night and immediately following. On Nov. 4-7, the group says it plans to “do whatever it takes”:
In the days following the election we’ll continue to come out into the streets every day to respond to rapidly changing events. We may be waiting for votes to be counted or we may be responding to major attacks on democracy. Over the next few weeks we’ll use our Spokes Council process to plan actions that are flexible and can scale to respond to a lot of different scenarios.
Then, on Nov. 8-11, the group’s plan is to meet members of Congress returning to Washington DC for the lame-duck session. “If Trump is trying to launch a coup, that’s no time for business as usual. We’ll meet them at the train station or the airports or if they drive into town we can meet them at their homes,” the website says.

A slide deck posted on the group’s website from an “organizing call” claims this group is working in concert with leftist groups around the nation to prepare for President Trump to “steal the election” and attempt a “coup.” The slides pinpoint now as the time these groups are “gathering gear” to respond.



The post-election plan of action links to the group’s advice about taking “appropriate precautions” for security. This includes forming “affinity groups” “that will go into more detail and possibly engage in higher risk actions.”

“Keep in mind that not everyone needs to know every detail of your plans,” says the post-election plan about “taking appropriate precautions.” “We don’t! Feel free to only share what people outside your [affinity group] need to know, and keep the specific action details close to the vest.”

What kinds of actions these might be are stated in a “Strategic framework for action following the 2020 election” that sketches out their plans for rioting and attacking American institutions and life until Biden is installed as president. It claims if Trump declares victory that will mark “the start of the coup.”

“At some point in the days following the election Trump will almost certainly either attempt to declare outright victory or attempt to invalidate the results of the election. That is the start of the coup,” it claims. “…Trump can only seize power if the world believes that he has the power. That’s why we’re starting this phase of the election in the streets… We need to show that we’re ungovernable under a continued Trump administration…That can mean blocking traffic at major intersections and bridges, shutting down government office buildings (why should ICE or the FBI be able to keep doing Trump’s bidding when he’s leading with a coup?!?), or blockading the White House.”

The document bases its action plan upon the scenarios projected by the establishment leftist “Transition Integrity Project” for election night and sketches these activists’ response to each, explicitly rejecting the possibility that Trump could legitimately win. It continues:
We’ll keep it going until Trump concedes. We could be in the streets throughout the fall and into the winter– maybe as lots of rolling waves of action or possibly as a few major tsunamis! In other parts of the country, as vote counts conclude, our focus will turn from protecting the vote counts to themselves being ungovernable.
As it becomes clear that Trump’s coup is failing, institutions and the elites will start to abandon him – or we will approach them as part of the problem. Either Amazon will shut down AWS for the Trump loyalists in the government or we’ll shut down their fulfillment centers. Either governors will tell their national guards to stand down or we’ll shut down their state capitals as well. Over time, Trump will grow increasingly isolated and his empire will crumble down around him.
Then — and this is the important part — Biden will move into the White House and be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.
On its Facebook page, the group recently posted a picture of a mob arriving at Sen. Lindsey Graham’s house at 6 a.m. to harass him for following the Constitution. In the picture, one protest sign reads, “We can’t sleep so neither should Lindsey.”



“Preventing Donald Trump from stealing the election and remaining in office is likely to take mass, sustained disruptive movements all over the country,” the group’s website posted on Oct. 7.

“Puting [sic] pressure on the media and social media agencies to refuse to declare a victor, resisting demands to call the vote in forvor [sic] of Trump, physically protecting the vote count from counter-protestors, federal agents, or white supremacist militias are all potential actions in this moment,” says the group’s “Disruption Guide for 2020.” The guide, a Google document, had 61 viewers at the moment it was reviewed for The Federalist.

BREAKING: Riot Erupts in Philadelphia After Black Male is Shot By Police While Charging at Them With a Knife (VIDEOS)
By Cassandra Fairbanks
Published October 26, 2020 at 10:27pm


A riot has erupted in Philadelphia after a black male was shot by police after charging at officers with a knife.


The shooting took place shortly before 5 p.m. on Monday, and footage of the incident quickly went viral on social media.

The man, Walter Wallace, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

“Officers ordered him several times to drop the weapon,” Philadelphia Police Sergeant Eric Gripp said. “He did not do so.”

“Fortunately it appears the officers were wearing body cameras,” Sgt. Gripp said. “The cameras were activated. So we should have a lot of video along with eyewitness statements.”

As usual, Black Lives Matter did not care about what actually happened during the incident, and a riot broke out.

The violent mob was reportedly throwing buckets and bricks at the officers.

91 Arrested in Philadelphia Rioting Including 76 for Burglary

Philadelphia police officials report they arrested 91 people during the protests, riots, and looting that occurred overnight and on Tuesday morning following the shooting of an armed Black man. Of those arrested, 76 were charged with burglary in connection to looting.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw told reporters during a video press conference that her officers arrested 91 during the overnight rioting. Those arrests included 76 people charged with burglary, including three people in possession of a firearm; 11 charged with assault on a police officer; and three for failure to disperse.

Commissioner Outlaw said 30 of her officers were injured during the civil unrest. Most were injured by projectiles thrown by rioters. Those projectiles included rocks, bricks, and other debris, she explained. One of those injured, a 56-year-old female police sergeant, sustained a broken leg after being run over by a large pickup truck that drove through a police line.

Outlaw attempted to separate the “peaceful protests” and the subsequent rioting and looting. She explained that the criminal activity was “not part of the protest.”

She also warned of additional trouble later on Tuesday. “For today and this evening, we anticipate the chance of additional incidents of civil unrest and, as such, we will be taking additional steps to ensure order,” the commissioner said.

The unrest began after two officers shot and killed an armed Black man, Walter Wallace, Jr. Video shot by a witness shows Wallace advancing on two police officers around a car and into the street. Officers ordered Wallace repeatedly to drop the knife.

Wallace continued approaching the retreating officers with the knife extended toward the police. Multiple shots rang out and Wallace fell to the ground. A responding police officer loaded Wallace into a vehicle and drove him to the hospital. He later died from his wounds.

Philadelphia Overrun By Rioting, Looting After Police Shoot Knife-Wielding Black Man

Tue, 10/27/2020 - 12:55

Yet another night of looting and rioting in America...

As Summit News' Paul Joseph Watson reports, the rioters hit the streets after the police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. in an incident being described as yet another unprovoked murder of a black man.

In reality, footage of the incident shows Wallace Jr. ignoring numerous warnings from police officers to drop the weapon as he advances on them before being shot.
His name was Walter Wallace Jr. He was given repeated warnings to drop the knife. Rather than listen to those warnings, he charged at officers while brandishing the knife. This was 100 percent a justified shooting, as any rational person can see. https://t.co/BUsYX37ngw

NOTE - the tweet of the actual incident has now been deleted from Twitter


However, as we have seen multiple times over the past 5 months, Black Lives Matter agitators don’t let the facts get in the way of yet another chance to riot.

The unrest began after two officers shot and killed an armed Black man, Walter Wallace, Jr. Video shot by a witness shows Wallace approaching two police officers around a car and into a street. Officers ordered Wallace repeatedly to drop the knife before firing.

Wallace continued approaching the retreating officers with the knife extended toward the police. Multiple shots rang out and Wallace fell to the ground. A responding police officer loaded Wallace into a vehicle and drove him to the hospital. He later died from his wounds.

Watch–Obama Defends BLM Protesters: ‘This Country Was Founded on Protesting Against Injustice’

HANNAH BLEAU27 Oct 2020847

Former President Barack Obama spoke at a drive-in rally in Orlando, Florida, on behalf of Joe Biden (D) Tuesday and forcefully defended the Black Lives Matter protests that have taken place across the country — many of which have been dominated by looting and violence.

“But Joe and Kamala, they care deeply about people, America, and they care about our democracy,” Obama told supporters before defending the protests.
“They understand that protest is not un-American. This country was founded on protesting against injustice,” he declared, praising Americans of “all races” for “joining together to declare — in the face of injustice and brutality at the hands of the state — that Black Lives Matter no more but no less.”

“So that no child in this country should feel the continuing sting of racism,” he added.

Obama told the group that they cannot abandon “all those young people who are out on the streets.” Rather, Democrats must “channel their activism into action.”

“We can’t just dream for a better future. We gotta fight for a better future,” Obama said.

Black Lives Matter protests dominated several U.S. cities over the summer following the May 25 death of George Floyd. Many of the protests, particularly those in what President Trump has characterized as Democrat-controlled cities, have been hallmarked by vandalism, looting, and violence, particularly against police officers.

For several weeks, protesters focused primarily on tearing down historic monuments and statues, supposedly in the name of racial justice.

Most recently, protests erupted in Philadelphia late Monday night into early Tuesday morning following a police-involved shooting of a black man armed with a knife. Ariel footage shows mass looting in the city:

Over two dozen officers were injured as a result of the riots, and one remains hospitalized with a broken leg after an individual in a pickup truck drove through a line of officers.

Live Coverage of Demonstrations taking place tonight around the country | Back the Blue Tuesday
•Started streaming 49 minutes ago


PT News Network


You know what day it is today? Back the Blue Tuesday! Each Tuesday we donate all of our earnings to a police officer or police charity. Tonight we have arranged to donate all of our earnings to the NYPD officer who was suspended without pay after saying "Trump 2020" while on duty this weekend. His suspension is a clear case of bias as the mayor allows the police department leadership to take a knee with the BLM movement, but an officer who is being confronted by extremists is not allowed to show his political leanings? We are live covering the nationwide demonstrations and "peaceful protests" taking place nationwide in real-time.

October 27, 2020 at 9:55 pm

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Looting and demonstrations continued for a second consecutive night Tuesday in Philadelphia following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. in West Philadelphia. Philadelphia police are requesting residents in several neighborhoods remain indoors due to widespread looting.


Police are requesting residents in the following police districts remain inside, unless necessary — 12, 16, 18, 19, 24, 25, and 26.

The Philadelphia Police Department is requesting that all residents in the 12, 16, 18, 19, 24, 25, and 26th Districts remain indoors except when necessary. These areas are experiencing widespread demonstrations that have turned violent with looting.

Chopper 3 was over looting on Aramingo Avenue in the city’s Port Richmond neighborhood around 8:30 p.m.

Looters could be seen entering a Foot Locker store.




Widespread looting continued at a nearby Walmart store in Port Richmond. Philadelphia police tweeted a warning to stay away from the area as a crowd of approximately 1,000 people was looting in the area.

*Alert* A large crowd of appx 1000 is looting businesses in the area of Castor and Aramingo. Avoid the area

A large police presence was also seen at a Target store in Port Richmond.





The Pennsylvania National Guard says several hundred members are being deployed to the city at the request of Philadelphia County as the unrest continues.


Thirty police officers were injured during violent protests Monday night, including a female officer who suffered a broken leg after being hit by a car.


Scores of West Philadelphia businesses were looted and a number of stores across Philadelphia have started boarding up their windows Tuesday in anticipation of more looting.


“I do not want to see my city tore down. We don’t need that. You’re not resolving anything for our family. Don’t do this in the name of my nephew because this is not what he would’ve wanted,” said Rodney Everett, Wallace’s uncle.


Wallace Jr., 27, was killed on Monday afternoon by two officers after, police say, he walked towards them and refused to drop the weapon. He was shot 14 times and neither officer was carrying a taser, officials say.
