DARBY BOROUGH The borough is back under a state of emergency today after being rocked by at least five violent incidents in a 72-hour period.
We are taking the borough back, Mayor Helen Thomas said during a Friday-night press conference to declare the state of emergency. We want everyone to understand that this has to stop, and its going to stop tonight.
Officials put the state of emergency declaration into effect at 8 p.m. Friday. Under the declaration, an 8 p.m.-6 a.m. curfew is in effect for adults and juveniles throughout the borough, and anyone discovered to be out during that time frame is subject to immediate stop-and-frisk procedures.
Police will concentrate primarily on groups of three or more individuals who are loitering or causing a disturbance.
The curfew will remain in effect for 10 days, after which, Thomas said, officials will re-evaluate the measure and decide whether to continue it.
(The criminals) are tearing the borough up, she said. There are too many guns and too many drugs. Tonight, the cells are going to be full.
The declaration was prompted by five violent incidents in the 72 hours preceding Fridays announcement. Those incidents included a stolen-car chase Thursday afternoon that ended with police shooting the driver after a confrontation at Fifth and Pine streets.
In an unrelated event earlier that day, a 27-year-old man was shot four times during a robbery in the 500 block of Spruce Street.
Later Thursday night, police were called to the 600 block of Darby Terrace for a report of a man with a gun barricaded inside a home.
Damned upper middle class whites stirring up trouble again!!!
The town must be run by liberals.
Uh oh, these folks are obviously committing a hate crime against Eric Holder’s people.
“There are too many guns and too many drugs”
Well, that explains it... there just aren’t enough laws against guns and drugs... /s
(The criminals) are tearing the borough up, she said. There are too many guns and too many drugs.
There are not enough guns in the hands of the law abiding citizens who need to protect themselves!
Moreover, so many of the crimes (flashmobs) that occurred throughout the country this weekend (Iowa, Philadelphia, etc) were black on white hate crimes.
Eric Holder's people on crime sprees.
Here is where it gets worse: if you have a stun gun in Philadelphia, and use it to defend yourself from a mob of thugs, you are the one who will be charged with a Felony.
If this had been white mobs on black citizens, then obamma would be out there right away, calling out the military if needed. But black on white, he just smirks!!
Sure sounds like these flash mobs are looking to start that race war that Van Jones has been advocating. I hope the younger people are smart enough to avoid it happening because it is exactly the bottom up, top down opportunity Obama and the commies want.
And, of course, the Obama supporters' answer will be to take the guns away from the law-abiding citizens.
What's wrong with shooting rioters in the streets like rabid dogs?
If the mayor were actually serious, she would have re-iterated Castle Doctrine and instructed the local DA not to prosecute followed by a stern warning: "You mess around in this borough, you will be shot."
/pipe dream for PA, I know. But as I recall, it seemed to have worked in South Carolina a few years back.
PA is pivotal in 2012.
Obama and the liberal TeaParty, the Black Panthers , have instructed their people to ramp up violence.
One misstep to restore order will be covered more than if the flash mobs killed 100 children.
There will be LA style riots in PA and Ill soon.
Yutes jus gettin wats dey deserve....
