According to the Philadelphia Police Department, Thursday’s shootings occurred in Philadelphia amid a 25 percent increase in both crime and shootings.
But despite the city’s rising crime rate, Mayor Jim Keney on Wednesday rejected the idea of bringing the National Guard to Philadelphia, saying it would be “not an effective means of bringing uniformed, camouflaged, armed rifles.” People who wear helmets to solve this problem. ”
“We used the National Guard to protect areas that needed to be protected from looting and arson during civil unrest, and we allowed the police to do other things,” Mayor Kenney told a news conference Wednesday on the city’s response to gun violence. He said. .
“But sending the National Guard and an army carrier to a neighborhood in Philadelphia is, for me, disrespectful to neighborhood number one. Second, they are not skilled or educated to be city police or police in any neighborhood.”
