Did Philly police just bike-doze Mayor Kenney's relationship with progressives?

Mayor Kenney faced a backlash from progressives after police officers on Thursday bike-dozed a modest encampment of protesters trying to shut down access to a local office for the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The mayor, who has held plenty of high-profile news conferences in City Hall to decry President Trump’s zero tolerance on immigration, was nowhere to be found as police officers used bikes to push down beach umbrellas and other encampment equipment.

Kenney spokeswoman Deana Gamble said the mayor shared activists’ frustration with ICE. However, she said, protesters cannot obstruct access to the ICE building at Eighth and Cherry Streets.

“ICE’s aggressive tactics, their separation of families, their targeting of law abiding immigrants are cruel,” Gamble said in a statement. “While [Kenney] agrees with the premise of the protest, he cannot make exceptions to the law and allow individuals to create a threat to public safety by blocking access to a building and setting up permanent encampments.”

In the wee hours of Friday morning, some anti-ICE activists even showed up at Kenney’s front door: They set up an “occupation” outside City Hall, with chairs and a sign that read “ICE IS ROUNDING UP PEOPLE IN A SANCTUARY CITY ICE GET OUT.”

In the old days, those would have been mounted police. People get out of the way of horses. They do not get out of the way of bicycles. In fact, everyone I know giggles when they see a cop with a bike.

Watch the video. The cops used the bikes rather effectively.

Horses do work better though. They are still widely used in NOLA. Even the drunks get out of the way.

I, for one, thought the video was fantastic!

I don’t know what these guys are sit-in protesting... our Immigration and Customs Enforcement people, the entire department, or the laws?

Do they want us to get rid of the entire department? That’s all shades of stupid, right there. Protecting the country’s border is actually a requirement, is it not? (Hint, it is).

The group cites Section 4, Article 4 of the U.S. Constitution, which states:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

I remember when they were called INS (immigration and naturalization service), but it doesn’t seem like any of these immigrants want to naturalize here, just bring their failed policies from where ever they’re from with them, whoever they are.

Looks like a gathering of defectives and malcontents - another one of the prime democrat constituency groups. Look at all that crap they had stockpiled all over. They were provisioned for an extended siege.

Well, lookee here, from another vid of the same gathering -
 
 
The usual agitator suspects - don't hold back ya'll, tell us how you really feel.
 
 
 
Though the text on the shirt is partially obscured, it can be accurately extrapolated as Philly Socialists.
 
This handsome chap can be seen at about the 1:10 mark on this vid, the sign at 1:27 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zraO5LrhcI
 
Gotta give some kudos to CBS for documenting and posting up the real faces of what's behind this disruptive garbage.

"ICE’s aggressive tactics, their separation of families, their targeting of law abiding immigrants are cruel,..."

"separation of families"? When these migrant invaders send their unaccompanied children across the border the "separation" is voluntary on their part...

"law abiding immigrants"? I have not seen a single instance of a law-abiding immigrant being cruelly targeted, deported or anything else (except earning and being awarded citizenship in the U.S)...

The NOLA PD still uses mounted police and I’d bet serious money a big reason is crowd control in the Quarter.

People get out of the way of horses.

Sometimes they have no choice. I was just a teen in 1948 when I saw the NYC police breakup a May Day melee. The mounted cops came in parallel to the mob and then had the horse use his rear end to shove the people aside.

I saw foot police club a couple of women who were wearing big floppy hat and asked my dad why they did that. He said the women had big pins to hold their hats on and used them to stick the horses. (They were Communists.)
