The iconic city of Philadelphia has not had a Republican mayor since 1952. The result is decades of out of control crime. So far in 2020 Philly has had a staggering 210 homicides. Democrat mayors are not willing and incapable of policing their cities. That is because the criminals are their voters. This is why Democrat controlled cities are by far the most dangerous cities in America. Elect Joe Biden and this horror is comin to your neighborhood.
.@RudyGiuliani: BLM “is a Marxist organization”… they have “been planning to destroy the police for 3 years and they finally got stupid Democrat Mayors to agree with them.”
