DISGUSTING DISPLAY: Group Plans Rally to SUPPORT Philadelphia Shooter that Injured 6 Police Officers

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.16.19

Organizers are planning a controversial protest this Friday to support the Philadelphia gunman who wounded six police officers during an eight-hour stand-off; saying members of law enforcement are an “occupying military force in the black community.”

“A controversial protest is planned Friday night in North Philadelphia to support Maurice Hill, the alleged gunman accused of shooting six Philadelphia police officers. Organizers say they expect 200 to 300 people to rally tonight,” reports CBS Philadelphia.

“Sadly, we do have to be there, I don’t understand it. There’s certain marches I do understand, this is definitely not one of them,” said Police Commissioner Richard Ross.

Hill has reportedly been arrested at least 12 times on gun and assault charges prior to the shootout, prompting many to question how the suspect was able to avoid prison.

“Many of you have found out about his history. It’s very significant. In fact, he told me on the phone, he used the word ‘extensive,’ he had an extensive criminal history and that he knew the system. This is why he was making the outlandish demands he was making,” added the Commissioner.

“The Philadelphia shooter should never have been allowed to be on the streets. He had a long and very dangerous criminal record. Looked like he was having a good time after his capture, and after wounding so many police. Long sentence – must get much tougher on street crime!” posted the President.

A handful of Philadelphia residents harassed and taunted police officers during a harrowing 8-hour long shootout Wednesday night; throwing objects at members of law enforcement as they struggled to end the stand-off.


“Onlookers were seen taunting and throwing things at Philadelphia police Wednesday night amid a wild shootout and subsequent standoff that saw six cops wounded, and video posted online shows one woman shoving a police officer making his way to the scene,” reports Fox News.

“I mentioned this at 10 and since I was harassed during that live shot, I’ll mention it here, too,” one local reporter said on Twitter. “A major moment of disappointment this evening was watching a crowd of people taunt police officers, laughing and yelling at them in the midst of the gunfire.”

“I should add — 98% of people here on scene were respectful and concerned. That moment was just such a startling thing to see in the middle of something so chaotic,” she added in a later tweet.

The man accused of opening fire on police officers in Philadelphia Wednesday night has an “extensive” criminal record; raising serious questions on why the suspect was free after at least a dozen arrests.

“The man accused of opening fire on Philadelphia police officers, wounding six and triggering an hourslong standoff that stretched into the night, has been arrested at least a dozen times since turning 18 — a rap sheet the city’s top cop described as an ‘extensive’ criminal history,” reports Fox News.


“With his hands in the air and a police light illuminating his every movement, alleged gunman Maurice Hill, 36, surrendered to authorities just after midnight Thursday, exiting the north Philadelphia neighborhood home he’d barricaded himself in,” adds Fox.

“Many of you have found out about his history. It’s very significant. In fact, he told me on the phone, he used the word ‘extensive,’ he had an extensive criminal history and that he knew the system. This is why he was making the outlandish demands he was making,” said Police Commissioner Richard Ross.

“The Philadelphia shooter should never have been allowed to be on the streets. He had a long and very dangerous criminal record. Looked like he was having a good time after his capture, and after wounding so many police. Long sentence – must get much tougher on street crime!” posted the President.
