“If the image of an upper-middle class city attorney clad in a blazer and sipping wine while vandalizing an upscale grocery store with an anti-Trump message strikes you as perhaps the most bourgeois sight imaginable, that’s because it is.”
Police have identified Duncan Lloyd as the suspect in the recent anti-Trump vandalism of an upscale grocery store in Chestnut Hill.
Assistant City Solicitor Duncan Lloyd has been recognized as the man seen wearing a dark colored blazer in the surveillance footage that captured the November 25th vandalism of the Fresh Market grocery. The other suspect, seen in the video spray painting the anti-Trump message of “[expletive] Trump” has yet to be identified. Both men fled the scene on foot.
On November 29, 2016 the Philadelphia Police Department posted information on their Facebook page that read “Wanted: Suspects for Vandalism in the 14th District [VIDEO].”
Chairman of the Philadelphia Republican Party Joe DeFelice issued a statement this afternoon calling for Lloyd’s firing:
“If the image of an upper-middle class city attorney clad in a blazer and sipping wine while vandalizing an upscale grocery store with an anti-Trump message strikes you as perhaps the most bourgeois sight imaginable, that’s because it is. Nothing can better represent the hysterical pearl-clutching of the ‘progressive’ elite in response to this earth-shattering election, when residents of Chestnut Hill and similar neighborhoods across the country discovered – gasp – that other people have a voice too. The assistant city solicitor in question had ostensibly taken the law into his own hands, since a democratic election didn’t yield his preferred outcome.
“For somebody with extensive legal training to feel entitled to vandalize a newly opened super-market strikes us at the Philadelphia Republican Party as an astonishing feat of idiocy. Did the extra glass of Shiraz give him some sort of delusional confidence that there are no cameras on Germantown Ave? The taxpayers should be entrusting exactly none of our faith into this man. He should be fired from our city’s law department immediately.”
Damage to the building is estimated to between $3,000 and $10,000, according to police.
