Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said today that there were 33 people shot in the city within a three-day span from Friday to Sunday.

Of those shootings, five were fatal and one was a suicide.

Homicide Capt. James Clark said the latest killing of Nyeme Taylor, which occurred Sunday night at an unauthorized street party on 33rd and Diamond streets, was the result of Taylor, 30, urging his 14-year-old son to fight five men.

Clark said Taylor son's was at the party when he was jumped by five men for unknown reasons. The boy ran to get Taylor and when the two returned to the party together, Taylor told the five men that his son would fight each of them, Clark said.

When the men jumped the boy again, Taylor tried to pull them off and one of the attackers pulled out a gun and started firing, police said.

Taylor was killed and three girls, including Taylor's 15-year-old daughter, were injured by gunfire. She along with other two girls, ages 6 and 10, are expected to survive their wounds.

Police also released shocking video of a patron who was ejected from a Nicetown bar early yesterday morning for smoking who came back and fired 11 shots into the bar, killing Carl Sharper, 43, and injuring five others.

Comments:
The exception doesn't disprove the rule. Philadelphia, like a lot of big cities, has a terrible problem lately with large gangs of black teenagers behaving like animals. If mobs of whites were terrorizing the black community you'd see a very different reaction from the powers that be. Unfortunately, the white community will have to take care of itself by any means necessary.

Poli is about 300 miles west of Philly. That said, of course there is going to be another cry for gun control.

Maybe he was in Philly so he could see a real baseball team.

We've had some bloody weekends in Detroit over the years, but I don't know if we've ever had 33 murders in one single weekend.

Might want to read the article again. 33 people were shot, only 6 died. And one of those was a suicide.

Well, we definitely have had more bloody weekends in Detroit than that, just not recently. When I first moved here in the 80s, and the city's population was still around a million people, there were some bad, bad times-especially when the Chambers' brothers were still running the crack business in town.
