Philly Police Find Van Loaded With Explosives


Philly Police found a van loaded with explosives and other equipment on Wednesday night in Logan Circle.

Philadelphia has become the latest home to violent riots and destruction after the shooting of Walter Wallace Jr.

ABC Channel 6 Action News in Philly reported that police recovered propane tanks, torches and possible dynamite sticks from the van.

These protests are not random. They are well funded and equipped.

Dan Cuellar tweeted from the scene.

In addition to the explosives and violent protests, many businesses in Philly that were just recovering from the COVID lockdowns have been destroyed and looted.

City officials said at least 200 businesses, many of them already struggling in the midst of the pandemic, were the targets of massive looting across the city. To assist police, an undetermined number of Pennsylvania National Guard troops will soon be arriving in the city.

  1. When people are looting, they are not protesters. A few carring out large screen TV should be shot for theivery. If they thought that there was a chance to get shot for stealing, some people just won’t do it. As it is now they know that they can get away with it.

    If I had ever done something like that, my parents would have beat the sahit out of me and then called the cops on me.

    The first time someone throws a frozen bottle of liquid, or a brick or rock at a cop he or her should have the authority to shot the SOB.

    I am tired of reading about cops getting killed during peaceful protests.

    Sincerely

    1. Thank you for your service, and for being the well-grounded person you are. I believe the Leftist leadership in these cities who are allowing the destruction of private and public property, the taking of innocent lives, the wanton looting and vandalizing of stores and livelihoods – are doing it because they SUPPORT the transformation of our society away from private ownership of businesses and property to some sort of utopian Socialist ideal that doesn’t exist, never did and would only bring universal misery if it was possible to put it in place.

      I also have frequently said that, based on the basic, Natural (given us by God) Human Rights of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” upon which foundation our nation was designed and built, it is the responsibility of everyone to be tolerant of the Rights of others in the same sense as we would expect others to show respect for OUR Rights. NO ONE possesses any Rights that aren’t equally possessed by everyone else, and the phrase “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” means each of us has the ABSOLUTE Right to control our own individual lives and destinies. That is also why our individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms for defense of life, the lives of those we love, our livelihoods and the lives of innocent people who cannot defend their own lives … CANNOT be separated from our Right to control our own life and destiny. The Right of SELF-DEFENSE has been recognized for thousands of years, transcending all societal establishments.

      The First Amendment protections of the freedom of speech, against government establishing a favored religion or prohibiting the free exercise of our faith, of petitioning for redress of grievances against the government, of freedom of the press – are all preserved against government overreach without qualification. But our Right to assemble freely to demonstrate, to protest or to celebrate are qualified by the use of the adjective “peaceably”.

      So, I agree with you that such assemblies must be required to be self-policing to a degree and that individual participants must be held to a known standard of behavior, holding them responsible for the actions of the group. Their RIGHT to assemble disappears with the first brick or bottle thrown, with the first fireworks set off (unless a permit for their safe use has been issued), with the first fire set or the first window broken. Once some thing like that happens, the police should be empowered to disperse the crowd, make arrests as necessary and to put an end to what has evolved into a riot.

    1. Whenever I see stories like this, my thought is if protests were actually peaceful, they would be legal. When businesses start getting firebombed and destroyed, and people die because of these protests, the protests are obviously no longer peaceful and go beyond legal bounds, and the protestors should be arrested. I think that is being done to a degree, but as these protests are indeed well-funded and connected, the “protests” are being allowed to continue by law enforcement. There is (also not surprisingly) not much comment from law enforcement when it comes to why more arrests aren’t being made, why the ferocity of the protests is going unanswered, and who is responsible. Where does the responsibility fall when it comes to upholding the law, and law enforcement fails? The answer lies in the Declaration of Independence: ” But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them (people) under absolute despotism, it is their (people’s) right, it is their (people’s) duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.” It means that those that have the ability to take action have the responsibility to take action to dispel those that would otherwise ruin this great country by subjecting it to acts of evil as these protests are turning out to be.

  2. An announcement should be made that lethal force will be used against any looter and any one that is attempting to harm others or police officers. Those in active destruction of property are also included in this advisory.. Then give one day and then take action. In addition to this go after the idiot brain dead mayors and governors that keep this crap going.If these cities and communities banded together and set up one system . Such as, If you are intent on coming into our town and create damage and destruction and cross the city limit sign You are NOW A TARGET.
