‘Rapidly Gone Downhill’: ‘Violent’ Riots ‘With Looting’ Rock Philadelphia

 ‘Rapidly Gone Downhill’: ‘Violent’ Riots ‘With Looting’ Rock Philadelphia


Widespread violent and looting rocked Philadelphia on Tuesday after police shot a man earlier this week who allegedly approached them while carrying a knife and did not obey orders to drop it.

CBS Philadelphia reporter Joe Holden reported that law enforcement officials said the situation that unfolded last week was a “total loss” and had “rapidly gone downhill.”

The City of Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management sent out a warning last night, writing: “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.”

Videos that were widely circulated online showed numerous stores sustaining significant damage as looters stole items.
