Got an email from a reader who got photos of two separate incidents in an afternoon’s time span.
At 11:30 AM
This pic shows more than a half dozen cops brought by as many as eight cop cars at 11:30 a.m. They pulled up and began an argument with some men who were seated outside about getting a ticket for “it” being parked outside. The cops seemed to want the search whichever vehicle it was, but the men asked for a warrant which the cops didn’t produce. They hung around a while, while one cop asked one of the men if he had any “rock” on him, because the cop didn’t “want to arrest” the man again.
At 4:30 PM
The next two attached photos I took of another roundup at 4640 Penn Street at 4:30 today. One woman screamed at the group of six or more cops who eventually returned to their panel van — save for two who walked the premises before leaving — and drove off in less than 10 minutes.
I thought it so strange that two big rollouts of cops would come to different homes on the same block and, well, do absolutely nothing except get screamed at climb back into their vehicles and leave. Perhaps setting the stage? Feeling these people out? …Or just mistakes?
This is good stuff. If you have any pics of anything, send em in and I’ll post em: firstname.lastname@example.org. Where are my citizen reporters of Frankford? I don’t want to be the only one.
