    Philly cops heckled during shootout

    With 6 wounded police officers, the responding officers report being heckled and having objects thrown at them from the onlookers.
    One cop was reportedly shoved from behind while running to the aid of his comrades.
    This is happening WHILE the shootout is happening.
    Why anyone in their right mind would want to be a cop today is beyond me.
    And this is coming from a guy who grew up in a cop family.
    If the police are not wanted even while the bullets are flying , they should just quit responding until all the shooting has stopped and the
    threat is over. Give these people what the want and deserve.
    Hope the liberals are proud of themselves for demonizing all police.

    But from much that I have seen, the police have brought much of this on themselves. I can't even remember the last time I had a positive experience with a police officer. Talk about a 1% club, the LEO seems to be the most unapproachable.

    I respectfully disagree. The police have not brought this on themselves. They are responsible for the ambushes and assassinations, water being thrown on them, the disrespect they get?,
    Are there some bad characters on the force, of coarse. But name me an occupation that does not have them.
    For what we are asking them to do for us, and the treatment they receive, is there any wonder they act defensively
    I have found that if I treat them with respect, that is what i get back.
    Maybe you should reevaluate how you respond to your interactions with LEO's if you are always treated poorly.
    I have yet to have a bad experience.

    I think there should be laws to prosecute people who interfere with police in any way in a situation like that. There have to be cops maintaining a perimeter in addition to the cops actually fighting the perp. Those perimeter cops should be busting people who are interfering.

    I was impressed that one news outlet rightfully refused to show video footage of the active scene so that cops' positions and movements would not be broadcast thereby endangering them. That was good. I think there should be a law that broadcasting live footage of an active scene is a crime. That would include individuals posting on social media. This would not be 1A prior restraint. This would all be adjudicated after the fact.

    I can, but that was the only one, and that officer is know as a jerk here. If you can't get along with me you have an issue.

    I don't train to fight some street urchin, I train to fight the evil version of myself, and that person scares me, because I know the time I put into my training on how to beat him.

    Police never bring that sort of thing on themselves and the disrespect that the dumbocrats have heaped on them is completely inexcusable. Honestly, attitude of sworn officers varies WIDELY from department to department. I do training, as a volunteer for 7+ years, for our County Sheriff's office quarterly. They open the training up to surrounding departments as a courtesy. I have never, not once, had any issues with any Deputy of any of the sheriff's departments nor with any Trooper from the State Patrol. I have had several issues with arrogant SOBs from municipal PDs and school police (the worst IMHO). I love working with the local Sheriff's office. They're my LEOs and they are outstanding and have been nothing but a join to work with, but several of the local Municpal PDs.....they're another story. YMMV.

    If I were the PC, Iíd pull all my cops out of that neighborhood and let them all kill each other. Theyíre all big shots taunting and harassing cops...letís see how tough they are when they call 911 and no one shows up.

    I looked up the neighborhood after this happened yesterday and it appears to have some of the lowest property values and income in the country.

    I'm from Philly (fortunately I now live in the Free State of Georgia) and that is not an area that you want to wander into unless you're in an armored vehicle IMHO. Last time it came up I was told the Cops travel in 2s and 4s down there.

    I can imagine. The average house sells for 21k. It sells for less than what the wood and bricks are worth!

    It may literally be the worst neighborhood in the US.

    I'm from up there too. Yes, it is an absolutely terrible area. All of North Philly is a ghetto(AFAIK) but that area in particular is a really really bad slum. The only reason I was ever there was due to taking a wrong turn driving as a teen. I learned though. If you ever see a sign for Temple University, immediately turn around.

    The northeast is expensive. When you see a house sell for less than 24 months of section 8 vouchers, something is terribly wrong.
