I still can’t get over this Really! You Dem's DA what do you expect..When ever going to learn. Why not try a different rot..Try a Rep what do you have to lose. Because you're being trying the same thing over and over again getting the same result Why not you couldn't do worse City of hate…don’t go there!

Oh yes, we know who is commiting the crime but it will just be kids cause it doesn't fit the correct fake news narrative. What we have here is a black criminal with guns problem. I know, truth hurts right? It’s time to stop messing around with these shooters take away all legal rights. No lawyers no plea bargains no appeals. Public hanging should do it

Too many dam kids down their should of sent they ass home instead of letting them hang out Dropped his gun and fled 🤨 This needs to end, whatever happened to fighting with your hands like a man! At least you went home, and took your lumps!

At least two dead, 13 shot in mass shooting in PhiladelphiaAt least 13 people were shot and two killed in a mass shooting in Philadelphia late Saturday night, police said. Gunfire erupted in the city’s bustling South Street neighborhood near 3rd Street sho… How is this possible? Philadelphia has some of the most strict gun laws. But there’s no problem with guns in America, right NY Post? MORE GUNS MORE GUNS MORE GUNS NRA please save us!!! We need more good guys with guns!!! Or else this will keep happening!!

Animals. South St. has become an absolute shithole. Krasner and Kenny still letting thugs back on the streets. Not serious about crime. It's the guns stupid. Is this the norm now? A daily mass shooting somewhere in the United States of America. They are only aware of motorboats and runs that do no harm and do not give priority to what is needed, that is why the world is as it is.

Hey action news this is where you should start for the root of the problem. Let's take people's guns away who obey laws, and hey while we're at it let's assume the criminals will give theirs back too! They totally will hand them in, I mean why wouldn't they? They love doing the right thing! Yayyy liberals let's ban the guns !

Welcome to Philadelphia bring your masks and your guns! Maybe if PASenateGOP would pass common sense gun laws in PA, mass shootings in the state might not happen.

Alabama State Falls to Georgia Tech 13-4 in Elimination Game - Alabama NewsThe ASU Hornets had led 2-1 in the third inning.

Was this race motivated mass shooting or is that only up to the narrative to determine They worried about Ukraine is we have our own war amongst eachother Well regulated militia at work. Philadelphia is becoming a war zone. Take back our beautiful city!! This is considered a mass shooting right? Do we know if the guns were legally owned? Just curious.

We need a better city, better life. Time for a strong handed Mayor, Police chief and DA that actually care about protecting the citizens of Philadelphia. Animals are running wild with their illegal guns that they need because they are cowards that can’t settle their differences with their hands. Prayers to the families of the lost ones tragedy

They never catch the people here. Never. The result of liberal laws and flawed leadership. KrasnersPhilly disaster I applied to work 4violence prevention! Well the City chose who they wanted well what now. There are no preventions published! Philly cont to have young ppl carry guns while officers stand on corners while open drug markets r taking place! We need to combat this now. We tired!

But how does this not make national headlines for days? Because it's not a lone shooter with mental issues? It's not as glamorous? What? Typical day under the biden presidency. TheScottCharles

13-year-old Tacoma boy arrested after threatening to “recreate Uvalde”A parent called police after their student heard another student make the threats. 13. wtf. I remember back in the day when 2 kids had issues with each other they’d meet after school, just off school grounds, and fight. No weapons. No school threats. Just a fight and when it was over, it was over. Good thing those guys weren't defunded I guess.
