    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.

    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.
