  1. He should of killed the 9 cops good job tho this is why all drugs should be legal just tax it it helps everyone and makes jobs less ppl in jail for nothing there’s no victims other places did it and they say it’s a better way I think alcohol is worse then most drugs anyway

  2. For all who don't know the nice town part of philly is actually one of the worst parts of philly ,it was given that name before blacks moved in about 60 years ago.

  3. And who did the people of Nicetown-Tioga side with? Certainly not with the Philadelphia Police.

  4. police need to "follow" the law toooo ( where is the BOND that is REQUIRED on allllllllllll these WARRANTS?) and NOT INVADE THE PRIVACY of HOMES it is called for THOUSANDS of YEARS , the 'DOMESTIC Authority Doctrine' ("We cannot just GO IN Someone else's Home; Land with or without cause, its a FORGOTTEN BELIEF of SANCTUARY ) and YES, U can JUSTIFY Water-Boarding allllllllllllll u want to it is the SAME Concept

  5. No snipers on their SWAT team??? It is horrible that they let this go on for this amount of time. And there's a big reason they let it go as long as it did………

  6. enforce the gun laws on the books. He should be prosecuted to the full extent, no pee deals. He knew what he was doing

  7. Black shoots 6 white officers. In response, whites are rioting, burning the city, stealing toilet paper from CVS, and beating up random black folks.

    No, wait… Oh, also notice this is not on CNN nor is race of the gunman and cops mentioned. Now, why is that?

  8. Dude must be a heavy bull up in Philly, if he wasn’t he is now, bra wasn’t going even call his lawyer, this guys a legend ….. #freedamen

  9. He’s lucky he WASNT shot coming out. Thank God he’s alive so he can face his charges. He should know that he’s not going to be free for MANY MANY MANY MANY years, I say at least 30 before parole. A newborn daughter…. he sure as hell wasnt thinking about her or the teenage son during this standoff.
    Now, just waiting for the Supremacists to make their comments …………..

  10. Those cops are weak. GTA cops wouldve ran in that house one after another to take him down. These cops were too scared

  11. So many black people cheering this guy as a hero….. Lol
    Same people who wonder why opinions of "POC" are often less than agreeable.
    Drug dealer, shitty dad, violent imbecile….. You can define people and culture by their heros…. Food for thought…..

  12. Appearances by shakia Jackson and shaka Johnson 😅😂🤣. Seriously don't let this take our mind of the Epstein death. PEOPLE need to be held accountable. I've no sympathy for the child abuser after he sang like a bird. Let general population have there say.

  13. Good Lord. It took that long to gas the dude out. 🙁 Guess they wouldn't disclose if they had drones to assist. Sounds like Philadelphia, should buy out a condemnable block and dually train in relocation of housing and squad training! Shuffle some blocks and remove and junk guns as well.

  14. This 'war on drugs' is a war on America. Anybody who doesn't understand this is an unfortunate dupe. Then there's the good ol' Philly pig pen… https://youtu.be/T5VYWdILMRU

  15. Honestly f*** these cops they did something illegal breaking and entering they're lucky they didn't get killed just cuz you have a badge doesn't mean you can just barge into anybody's house they didn't even have a warrant hope they learned a lesson
