On Monday night violent Black Lives Matter goons looted, rioted and attacked police in Philadelphia.
Angry crowds took to the streets in West Philadelphia overnight after police shot and killed a man armed with a knife Monday, with some in the crowds throwing rocks and bricks at police and some looting or vandalizing businesses.
At least 30 police officers were hurt, police said. One was hospitalized, a 56-year-old sergeant who was struck by a pickup truck at 52nd and Walnut streets early Tuesday. Her leg was broken, among other injuries, police said.
All the officers, except for the one struck by the truck, had been treated and released as of early Tuesday.
At least one police car and dumpsters were set on fire as police struggled to contain the crowds. More than a dozen officers, many with batons in hand, formed a line chasing protesters away from the main thoroughfare.

On Tuesday, the Trump Campaign released a devastating new ad that slams Joe Biden for abandoning the US Police and supporting violent rioters.
From the ad: “As riots again begin to break out in cities across America, the Trump campaign has released a new television ad titled “Uphold the Law.” This ad reminds voters that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have turned their backs on law enforcement and embraced far-left agitators in a bid to appease their radical base. While President Trump backs the blue and works to reestablish law and order, Joe Biden fans the flames of violence. By bailing out rioters and refusing to condemn left-wing violence, Joe Biden has tacitly endorsed the radical extremists tearing America apart. He simply cannot be trusted to uphold the rule of law and defend the American people. “Uphold the Law,” will be aired nationally.”
