Fight Between 2 Teens Grows Into 200 In Center City; 14 arrested
MyFoxPhilly ^ | April 9,2013 | Shawnette Wilson

Posted on 04/10/2013 9:42:58 AM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi

From the air, SkyFOX captured an enormous amount of activity in the area of Chestnut near 15th Street in Center City. On the ground FOX 29 cameras were there as police moved in and arrested more than a dozen teens after a fight between two girls grew into a melee involving nearly 200.

"It got crazy. Everybody was pushing and shoving," said Nicholas Adams. The sneaker store where he worked even locked its doors.

Adams said, "We didn't want them running into our store knocking stuff over. We had people inside the store who we didn't want to let out because we didn't want them to get trampled."

Lakia Garrick watched it from her job at Wendy's on the corner.

"All of a sudden, all these kids just started running in here. Then the cops came in and cleared the store out and told us we can't serve nobody until they cleared downtown," Garrick said.

As police cleared the street and dispersed crowds of people watching, some of the teens also got violent with them.

"Bottles were thrown at police but no injuries to police," said Chief Inspector Cynthia Dorsey.

Gilbert Hernandez had a clear view of it all from the window of his pizza shop. "I saw them running back and forth, back and forth."

Most in the area say they see this every year and it was only a matter of time before it happened again.

"We were waiting for it. Every time it gets warm out they just act crazy," said Lakia.

Police say about three schools in the area were letting out around the time the brawl happened. Bike cops already in the area acted quickly to restore order. Police are looking to step up presence even more in wake of what happened.

Please know, you don't have to feel bad for merely stating the truth to your daughter and her friend and looking out for their welfare as any good parent would do. Not at all. You didn't create this truth, you're simply stating it on behalf of your daughter's safety.

This should be an interesting summer. 0bammy’s yoots are out of work and already have an 0bamaphone. The streets gonna be unsafe this summer.

It's all because of Bush and the whiteys. Anyway, I go nowhere near the concetnrated Democrat parasite nests ("cities"), and my street, way out here in the country, is safe as can be. I couldn't care less if the animals burn and loot their own neighborhoods to the ground.

Just the other day, I heard Rush state a staistic that for 200 yrs, the out-of-wedlock births ran around 2%.
Now, just white teen-age girls are at 60%(?) or some
awful number of unwed births...it’s way above that for black females.
Pray for our country!

If there is EVER a hitch in the EBT, just load up the truck, and boogie for the woods like there’s no tomorrow.

The cities will be in flames.

I feel like being race conscious today.
I have read nothing at this point but the headline.
No comments, no article, nothing.

I am now going to look and see how many Amish are involved in this ‘incident’...

Reference post #60 -

Hmm...

So far I’m seeing no pictures and absolutely no references what so ever. Just “teens”, “them”, “they”, and “rowdy kids.”

I know how the media operates in these situations and I’m getting a little suspicious.

"The Walking Dead" is just an allegory for when Ubama switches off the EBT cards.

There will be no place to hide.

Offense will be the only defense.

“I pretty much know it involved obama’s peeps...”

You are so correct. The four 18 yr old’s who were arrested were black. All of ‘em I saw being cuffed were black. Seems the others who are copied on this comment think it’s cute not to call a spade a spade...a whole bunch of Obama’s and Holder’s peep’s doing what they do best. The @$$hats in the White Hut and in the no-Justice Dept want this...devide the country and keep it divided.

It ain’t what it’s cracked up to be anymore, and by the way...all this going on in the city of ‘brotherly love’.

Yep, these “teens” were obviously “teen” Vikings.

Eh, no worries. I’m just proud that I stopped call ‘em “Amish.” I work with too many (one) to risk getting careless and say “black,” so I have to be careful not to slip up because I’ve seen 35 year employees get the boot for getting crosswise with accusations of “racist.”

It’s that toxic in the corporate world. :^(

Yes, I know about the Corp World and PC crap...being the retired old codger I am allows me to forget a lot of that. As for the Amish, we are 25 miles from the largest Amish community in the world, and many are my friends.

Speaking of, one of the Amish farms has a couple of camels in the pasture. Thinking how much fun it would be to hitch one to an Amish buggy...Muzzie terrorist traveling ‘incognito’...

Amish I have known and known of are the salt of the Earth. My Mom grew up in the Depression on a farm, and their neighbors were Amish. My Grandparents were poor, but they never wanted because of their good friends the Amish.

(I’d love to see a pic with the camel/carriage.)
