Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “National Guard Sent to Philadelphia After Protests Over Fatal Police Shooting” – below is their description.
Pennsylvania’s governor deployed the National Guard on Tuesday after a police shooting on Monday sparked protests, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported, just a week before the swing state will help decide the presidential election. Governor Tom Wolf sent the National Guard to Philadelphia a day after demonstrators clashed with police following the death of a 27-year-old Black man, Walter Wallace Jr. He was fatally shot by police, who said he was armed with a knife. Wallace’s family said they had called for an ambulance to get him help with a mental health crisis, not for police intervention, the Associated Press reported. Thirty police officers were treated for cuts and bruises overnight, caused in most cases by bricks, rocks and debris thrown by protesters, a police spokesman told The New York Times. A sergeant was treated at a hospital for a broken leg after she was hit by a pickup truck, the spokesman said. Some businesses were damaged. The Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management posted on Twitter that residents in several districts in the city should “remain indoors except when necessary.” It said these areas had “experienced widespread demonstrations that have turned violent with looting.” The clashes in Philadelphia reignited the issue of police shootings of Black men in the waning days of a presidential campaign that has been shaped by protests since the May killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The city’s African-American community is considered key to Democrat Joe Biden’s push to win Pennsylvania’s electoral votes. Donald Trump’s narrow victory in the state four years ago helped send him to the White House.Bloomberg QuickTake: Now YouTube Channel
