Activist plan to protest in support of the gun man who shot 6 officers shot in the city’s Nicetown section Wednesday afternoon, officials said, prompting a massive response to the North Philadelphia neighborhood.
The standoff lasted for 8 hours and put two daycares at risk.
In the Wake of all the mass shootings in which the left proclaims violent offenders should be redflagged and have their weapons taken away they are now protesting in support of an shooter?
What in the actual fuck is going on?
The suspect has a lengthy VIOLENT background and its very clear he should not be on the streets.
Yet this also goes to show that gunlaws do absolutely nothing to keep firearms out of the hands of violent criminals.
According to CBS Philly the protest is planned Friday night in North Philadelphia Organizers say they expect 200 to 300 people to rally tonight.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross says police will be there too.
DA Krasner: Suspected Gunman Who Shot 6 Philadelphia Officers ‘Should Not Have Been On The Streets’
“Sadly, we do have to be there, I don’t understand it. There’s certain marches I do understand, this is definitely not one of them,” Ross said.
Hill is still in jail right now while he waits to be arraigned.
I should add – 98% of people here on scene were respectful and concerned. That moment was just such a startling thing to see in the middle of something so chaotic.

Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said Thursday Hill will most likely face charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault, among others.
“There will be a lot of charges. These are more than enough charges so that Mr. Maurice Hill may never exit jail,” Krasner said.
All six police officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were released from the hospital Wednesday night.
