Philly’s Dem Mayor Wants Out After Overseeing Record-Setting Crime Surge

Amid the nationwide crime crisis that has arisen out of woke Democrat policies and the so-called “progressive prosecutor” movement, Philadelphia has been especially hard-hit — and its mayor is apparently tired of leading and looking forward to being out of office after overseeing the city’s record-setting crime spike.


On Independence Day, two law enforcement officers were hit with gunfire at Philly’s July Fourth festivities from an unknown suspect or suspects — authorities are still trying to identify those responsible and determine their motive. Thankfully, both officers were discharged after being treated for their wounds.

Video of the chaos that followed shows that happens in big cities where there’s little if any penalty for breaching laws:


It’s hard to blame Kenney for not wanting to lead a city where Democrat policies — that is, his own — have made the streets exceedingly dangerous — but then it’s on Kenney to make the changes necessary to uphold the rule of law, which he and his fellow Dem leaders refuse to do. In addition to Mayor Kenney, embattled District Attorney Larry Krasner has defied calls for law and order to be restored while the City of Brotherly Love smashes all-time homicide records — 562 slayings in 2021 and 267 killed so far in 2022 — but D.A. Krasner denies the city has a violence or crime problem.
