The generational Democrat leaders of Philly like all other big cities don't want to address, nor solve the problem. They have a large portion of the electorate that is dependent, controlled but often lawless, and criminal, yet they all vote Democrat, so why change things?

We remain the Designated Them of American society, and incidents like this one feed the confirmation bias of the retrograde among the whites. (And bring some of those whites' inner retrograde to the surface.)

And, of course, these same people would, say, watch a film like "Gangs of New York" and fail to see the parallels.

cpomp: I'd modify that short-term solution to stipulate that the new cops hired come from the communities they're policing.

Edited to add: Someone asked what a "yob" is. That's a British slang expression for a young hooligan or thug, always male - it's "boy" spelled backwards.
