    I used to live 3 blocks from there. Thank god I moved when I did. Oxford Circle is now North Philly!

    The 18 yr. old died. Hard to tell the fireworks from the gunshots anymore. I think it’s time to profile, stop, frisk, beat, taze, and/or shoot these SOBs. Stop being so damn PC or things will only get worse.

      You are 100% correct. Either the cops get the upper hand or these POS’s do. They need to be exterminated or this city will turn into another Detroit.
