Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Philadelphia Screamin'!

Philadelphia is in the news right now mostly because of a laughable piece of liberal guilt masquerading as journalism that appeared in this month's issue of Philadelphia. Taco Bell is in the news right now based in the monstrous success of their Doritos Locos tacos. And when the twain meet, it's--of course--in this column.

Actually, it happened in something called Bala Cynwyd, but who's keeping track? Roll the tape!

Three men were stopped by police after they created a disturbance inside the City Avenue Taco Bell on March 6, police said. At 9:11 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to 5 W City Avenue on report of a disturbance and were told by management that the three men had been cursing and throwing things around, but had left.

Police located the car and conducted a traffic stop. One of the men, a 27-year-old Philadelphia man, was cursing at police and was ordered out of the vehicle, police said. The man had a knife in his possession, and upon a search, police discovered a small amount of marijuana on his person, according to the report.

I can understand why you want to dismiss the Philadelphia story as "liberal guilt masquerading as journalism," but I thought the pathos it evoked in fearlessly (and accurately) breaking down the composition of the city into two groups...shiftless, self-entitled Blacks and tolerant Whites who reflexively self-assign culpability...was priceless.  

There were also a number of good points cited...not the least of which was that Blacks are as likely to be the victims of crime as to be the ones committing them.   Next time you're at Pat's in South Philly, take a walk a few blocks west and then explain to me how Philadelphia magazine and liberal guilt are more responsible than the attitudes of Philly's Blacks (and Whites) for making one of this country's formerly thriving urban centers the hopeless pit of a city it has become.

@JBinOC Sorry, but when people get assigned pseudonyms, that ain't "fearlessly." And "shiftless, self-entiled Blacks"? Wow, looks like yet another of our East Coast transplants learned our anti-black religion just fine!

BTW, the one time I was in Philly, the only listless people I saw sitting in front of brownstones that stared me down were guidos. I take it they were guidos because they all hate Italy flags on their tricked-out cars. Didn't see the author work them in, because it simply didn't fit in his simplistic narrative.
