"The video from a violent gun attack in Philadelphia last month has just been releases. And it’s shocking."

"According to prosecutors, two gunmen unleashed a hail of bullets into a city bus after a female passenger had a minor spat with a stranger. A hail of bullets ripped through the bus, creating havoc among passengers, but amazingly nobody was injured."

I think its because there are no jobs and they are probably ex-cons, so now they cant get jobs because of that. It's also due to the lack of education since the one guy looks above 25, but due to his lack of education he can't figure out wrong from right yet, he needs to go back to 4th grade to learn that.

This is impossible. Didn't happen if buses are gun-free zones.

As someone who grew up in Philly and works there (and is here right now) this sadly is not shocking. There's so many disgusting people in this city and everyone is so quick to blame everything but themselves. "no work". it doesn't matter, even when the economy was THRIVING people were still ghetto and killed each other like crazy in this city.

I think it is because they are basically animals.

Exactly. People like him always turn these criminals/pigs/animals into VICTIMS here.

It's their parents fault for popping out kids left and right so they can collect the stamps and never spend a minute raising their kids.


But you don't need an "education" to tell you right from wrong. That's called logic. You can't teach logic. You need an education to read or write. or do math.

No charges filed because nobody got hurt?? What kind of insanity is that? Plax Burris got two years in jail for accidentally shooting himself for gosh sakes. What kind of lunatics are running Philly?
