Okay for those of you less aware of Philly geography and history, Walter Wallace Jr was killed by the Phila. Police at 61st and Locust, three blocks from the site of the 1985 MOVE bombing where the Phila PD bombed a family’s home and killed 11 people
We can’t talk about current police violence against black people in philadelphia without the historical context: this isn’t new, the police have always been like this, they have not changed, they will not change, we must abolish the police.
Someone asked what the long history of Philadelphia Police brutality has to do with today’s specific police brutality and the answer is: literally everything! Hope this helps.
