    Why the Black Lives Matter protest outside a Philly police officer's home was not 'illegal occupation'
    "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.

The city claims that the lender's alleged "reverse redlining" violated the federal Fair Housing Act; Wells Fargo argued that Philadelphia "could not show that bank policies had a disparate impact on minority borrowers."
