Philly Cops Were Ordered To Not Arrest Looters


Breaking: OBTAINED BY FOX29 NEWS. Directive from @PhillyPolice executive team. Extremely frustrated officers, both patrol&commanders told me overnight they were”ordered to NOT arrest looters just disperse them”. ‘CAR-2’ is Deputy Police Commissioner Melvin Singleton @FOX29philly

Yesterday when police announced the number of arrests in the Mon-Tues looting,charges were for “burglary”. And in the directive, @PhillyPolice point out no calls for burglary will be responded to by the dept.&officers think that leaves no deterrent to stop looting @FOX29philly
