Calls For Liberty Bell To Be Taken Down: 7 injured in 2nd Philadelphia shotgun shooting within 48 hours

Seven people, including three young children, have been injured in a shotgun attack in a Philadelphia neighborhood – marking the second similar attack in less than 48 hours.

As of Monday evening two men remain in critical condition after a single gunman opened fire in the city’s Kensington section around 2:30 p.m., police said.

The violent attack comes after another seven people were wounded when a man similarly opened fire with a shotgun less than four miles away on Ogden Street.

    I heard nothing about this on the news, so I suppose that no whites were involved?

    • You betcha.

        Thought so.

        You aren’t allowed to mention black on black crime.

        • BillyHW

          I’m more concerned about black on white crime, frankly.

        • Norman_In_New_York

          I thought black lives matter.

          • Exile1981

            Only if they were killed by whitey.

          No, they aren’t allowed to mention black on black crime.
          We can talk about it all we want.

          • Exile1981

            And we should since a white person is 500 times more likely to be murdered by a black than a black person is to be murdered by a white.

    Ban the Liberty Bell–it encourages “Crackers”!

      You know what was a good show?
      Cracker, with Robbie Coltrane.
      Christ it must be over twenty years now.

    This summer is going to be awesome. A few more degrees and American cities will look like Yemen.

      It doesn’t help that the usual suspects are pouring gasoline everywhere.

    Melt it down for bullets, because we will need them for self-defense.

    I was in Philadelphia a while back on business and went out of my way to visit the Liberty Bell and looked around the museums and dioramas that pictured how the noble Americans threw out the despicable British redcoats. I acted with total decorum – my thoughts are my own.
    Could someone explain the non sequitur here.
    People are shot and injured and we should take down the Liberty Bell – a key part of your (American) history. Why?
