    Fired Philly prosecutor speaks at sentencing of Rittenhouse Square stabber
    After the mother, an aunt, and a family friend described to a judge how a beautiful young life was cut short when Colin McGovern was fatally stabbed over a New Jersey Devils cap two years ago at Rittenhouse Square, his relatives chose another person to read six more victim-impact statements: the prosecutor who tried the case, and who was among those ousted by new District Attorney Larry Krasner earlier this month.

    Philly cop's accused ISIS-inspired shooter scheduled for trial Monday
    The revelations kept coming. First, the phone rang in the middle of the night, waking Police Commissioner Richard Ross. An officer had been shot in West Philadelphia. Details were sketchy. Then, after Ross arrived at Penn Presbyterian Hospital, investigators showed him harrowing photos of the attack, in which the shooter could be seen approaching the officer's police cruiser, arms outstretched, gun in hand, unloading bullets into the driver's side.

    "It is shocking to me that Police Commissioner Richard Ross and Mayor Jim Kenney allowed this illegal occupation to go on for hours without taking any action to enforce the law..." Since Black Lives Matter protesters rallied last week outside the home of the Philadelphia Police officer who shot and killed David Jones, several politicians and local leaders have jumped in to defend the officer and condemn BLM's actions.
