Like most U.S cities with a significant Black population, Philadelphia (Pa.) is intimately familiar with urban terrorism. These despicable acts are routinely perpetrated by a criminal subculture that exists within the Black community, and protected by the “no snitch” code. Even so, police in the “City of Brotherly Love” persevere, and are hoping that this newly released video from a hotel shootout will encourage someone to break the no snitch code.
The shocking footage vividly shows gun-toting urban terrorists exhibiting the brotherly hate that’s omnipresent in Philadelphia’s urban landscapes, and it’s impact on overall society.
As reported by Fox Philly:
“A shootout at a Philadelphia hotel is all caught on tape.
It happened at the Roosevelt Inn on the 7600 block of East Roosevelt Boulevard in March.
On Wednesday, police released the video, hopefully to aid in the capture of the suspects.
You can see on the video, which police released on YouTube, that guests were seeking cover as two gunman shoot at each other. Police say it’s a miracle no one was hit.
The shootout happened around half-past midnight last Monday. At first the targets take off, but one pulls out his own handgun and fires back. It then becomes a game of cat and mouse as startled hotel guests duck out of the way.
On the video you see how the gunmen pay no regard to the innocent bystanders just trying to making it to their rooms or to safety.
Police are looking into whether the men were paying guests staying at the hotel. They did find bullet casings at the scene but are still figuring out how many shots were fired.”
Please note that Philadelphia has gun control laws. In fact, Section 6108 of Pennsylvania’s Criminal Code states:
No person shall carry a firearm, rifle or shotgun at any time upon the public streets or upon any public property in a city of the first class unless:
1) such person is licensed to carry a firearm; or
2) such person is exempt from licensing under section 6106 of this title (relating to firearms not to be carried without a license).
Apparently, these illegally-armed menaces at the hotel didn’t know about this firearm statute. Had they known Pennsylvania’s gun laws, they most certainly would’ve held hands and sung a Negro spiritual, instead of utilizing illegal guns to settle their dispute.
In 2013, Philadelphia had 247 homicides; 81 percent were committed by firearms. Not one of those homicides was committed by a person with a gun license. Surely, that’s not a coincidence.
Despite having gun control laws, Philadelphia’s gun-related violence persists. Statistically, Philly has been a reliable mainstay as one of America’s most dangerous cities, and has even earned the shameful moniker, “Killadelphia.”
Weeks before this hotel shooting, Pennsylvania lawmakers moved to strengthen Philadelphia’s gun laws. The House Judiciary Committee gave initial approval to several firearms bills, including one that would create a minimum two-year prison sentence for anyone who illegally carries a gun in Philadelphia.
Great, another gun bill that will have urban terrorists trembling in their Timberland boots. Not!
