Several retail stores were looted across different parts of Philadelphia last night. The looters filmed their mayhem laughing the whole time.
It was a disgraceful display of Dem policies brought to life but there was a silver lining. One of the looters who livestreamed the action who goes by the name ‘Meatball’ was arrested and her tearful mugshot was released.
Interim Commissioner John Stanford told reporters the looting began around 8 p.m. “This had nothing to do with the protests,” Stanford said.
“What we had tonight was a bunch of criminal opportunists take advantage of a situation to make an attempt to destroy our city.”
Retail stores in Center City like Lululemon, the Apple Store, and Footlocker were looted by what police called a “coordinated attack.”
In North Philadelphia, thieves looted retail stores like GameStop and Walmart. A Family Dollar store in West Philadelphia was also looted.
The owner of Bruce Goldberg Northeast Pharmacy says 40 bags of filled prescriptions, including blood pressure and AIDS medication, were stolen during the looting.
