Nope. Philadelphia is almost a black majority city with very strict gun control laws. When means the criminals have guns and law abiding citizen generally dont because the Philly city government will not give concealed weapons permits. So no one who could step in and stop the guy. As they could in a city with widespread concealed weapons permits.
There was an off-duty transit police officer on board but they did not intervene for very understandable reasons. There have been lots of cases just like Chauvin but that was the one that got most publiscty because of the video.
This is the rapist…
This is the City DA
The DA is one of the left wing loony Soros financed DA’s who prosecutes cops and releases criminals. The transit cop would have been the guy whose life is ruined if he had intervened.
Philly has one of the highest murder rates in the US.
That in itself makes a big difference in the do I get involved equation.
What the IT story fails to mention is the woman was black, drunk and probably also a street person. Or had spent time on the streets. So no sane person of any race in any big US city would get involved in such a situation. For a start anyone who was not black intervening stands a very good chance of having their lives completely ruined. The woman changes her story and the good samaritan is now facing a criminal race investigation and will start getting deaths threats or worse from BLM thugs.
Not sure about the law in Philly but in SF due to a ordinance passed by some black criminal huckster (ex street dealer) on the Board of Supes last year if a black guy tries to rob or mug someone if the police is called the criminal can claim they were racially abused by the crime victim and the police will haul the crime victim off to the police station and the mugger can file a criminal complaint against the victim. This has been a standard operating procured by black muggers for years. Claiming the victim racially abused them. So the new ordinance now makes it easy for any black mugger to get the victim investigated if they call they police.
As the sort of person who does step in when people are out of line in public there is no fucking way I would get involved in any way apart from calling the police (maybe) if blacks are involved. A black perp / other race victim it depends on the situation but except in special circumstances not getting involved either. I’ve stepped in with abusive passengers on public transit but never with abusive blacks. Unless there is a black passenger or black driver who could stop the abuse all the other passengers just try to move away or move beside the subject of abuse hoping it will end. I’ve seen this happen several times. Everyone knowing that to even call the police would just get the victims and bystanders in a whole bunch of trouble. The abuser would walk away scott free.
Thats what happens when the Democratic Party plays the Race Card decade after decade. Most people stop caring and dont give a shit what happens to blacks in a crime situation. Just not worth the risk of getting involved.
