From Al Jazeera: "In Pictures: Tension grips Philadelphia for second night"

"Hundreds of demonstrators marched for a second day in Philadelphia demanding racial justice.

Tension gripped the streets of Philadelphia for a second night on Tuesday following a deadly police shooting of a Black man armed with a knife and described by relatives as suffering from a mental breakdown.

Violent unrest and looting followed in the West Philadelphia neighbourhood near where 27-year-old Walter Wallace was gunned down on Monday, as hundreds of demonstrators marched once again demanding racial justice.

Wallace suffered from bipolar disorder, and his psychological difficulties were relayed by his wife to the officers who encountered him before the shooting, a lawyer for his family said.

The encounter transformed Philadelphia into the latest flashpoint in a months-long series of protests across the United States."

3. Not a good look for us.

Neither the police murdering this guy nor the idiots rioting over it make our city look good. This pattern of of peaceful protests devolving into looting and rioting after the sun goes down is so frustrating. I wish people had more fucking sense.
