That would be a good start. And remove the serious troublemakers from their schools.

Like hyenas .... These losers and the one from the suburbs should be forced to live in a cage together.
Neighbors here in Germantown are coming together and collecting money for a care package to give to Mark. The students have been apprehended and were the same kids involved in the Principal incident. The parents also need to be held accountable, but I'm glad neighbors were able to identify the perps. I live and work near where this took place, and it angered me so much to see that video. Poor guy.

Haha, I know. To be sure it wasn't just me ignoring the news, I searched on his name and found the exact same thing. The last real news was the cap over I-95 that he's sponsoring/supporting. But wtf cares about that compared to these other issues.

I hope MB1562 is right and he's a one-term wonder. He deserves it; especially since his ego is so big.

Yes, troublemakers breed more troublemakers.

Former PHL17 staffer Colleen Campbell deserves to fade into obscurity after obscene rant

Not really crime news in the traditional sense, but wow, this escalated quickly. I was at Devil's Den a day or two before this incident and saw her for the first time bar-tending (I don't watch local news on tv). She was kind of strange, even a little rude to my friend. Crazy this happened a day or two later and she lost both jobs (DD and PHL17).

It became a national story, and the online version went viral. The woman lost her jobs, became a public pariah, and retreated to an “undisclosed location” which is reachable only by Seal Team Six. Until they get there, she is recovering with the help of her family and an attorney.
Not exactly a retreat, given I saw her on Monday with her boyfriend (from the video) at another local establishment...haha.

Wow! I finally brought myself to watch it-what an embarrassing display.

Crack down hard on the real bad asses and the decent kids "sitting on the fence" will fall in line.

'HAHA' is right! I give her credit for being dedicated.

Green didn't run again, partially, because city council was awful back then too. I remember him calling it the worse legislative body in the world. So you see a lot of stuff never changes.

If someone challenges Kenney in the 2019 primary it might Darrell Clarke!

Crazy lady cop:
http://6abc.com/news/philadelphia-co...g-gun/2078645/
I doubt she'll lose her job ... with such a strong union, even wackjobs like this stay on.


Crescentville:
http://6abc.com/news/3-men-stabbed-d...ville/2079596/
Hill Creek projects has done a number on that neighborhood the past forty years.


Hunting Park:

Whether the cop was right or wrong, I'm just happy this one's off the streets.
