  1. Ken Bandera You only named black sports players, what about Your last football coach whose kids were one of the biggest drug dealers in Philadelphia. How many lives have they destroyed. But people like you don’t look at things like that. There is good and bad in every race in Philadelphia. Each race has done harm to Philadelphia, sports and politics.
    As for the rest of your comment, I agree with you. Philadelphia is the 3rd poorest city in the United States, so I truly don’t know where they got that from. Murders, kidnappings, hoodlums taking over steps and blocks. Police Commissioner says he is going to start arresting you if you don’t snitch. When some of the police force are crooked and knows these hoodlums on a personal level. Phiily Hoodlums has spies in the police force, City Hall, 911 operatives, the courts and in political offices.
    So no one is dumb enough to care about the Police Commissioner’s law. This is Philly. The quieter you are, the safer you are. Why would someone want to come to a prison within a prison. Where you are afraid to have your children play outside, so you go to another neighborhood park where it is more safer. You have to walk your kids around the hoodlums to take them to school. Philly is the hood, and like one Philly politician said long ago, why should they past a law to stop people from wearing their pants down and show there underwear. That’s there style and they shouldn’t past a law to stop their style.
