    These animals should have their hands cut off so they can never use them to hurt another human being. Our laws need to change. I’m sure this isn’t their first brush with the law but we keep letting animals out of their cages and loose on our streets. Don’t know why any tourist would want to come to this city. I unfortunately am stuck here right now but the first chance I get, I’m packing and fleeing.

    My God Philly is no joke! You are now traveling our streets and transportation at you own risk! Such a shame this great city is losing conrtol of it senses. We have so much culture and histroy to offer. I have no idea what is causing all these changes. My vision is so poor even I don’t dare venture out at night. As you can see. This is also on the PATCO Lines to NJ as well. These assaults and killings need to stop. All for nothing!! For nothing but sport and glory of doing it.

    How many previous arrests did those being charged today have? Too bad something was not done when they were juveniles.
