Rioting broke out in The City of Brotherly Love after the Eagles won a stunning victory over the New England Patriots to clinch Super Bowl 2018. According to the latest police estimate, some 8,000 people had taken to the streets after the historic win.

Philadelphia Eagles fans then started to riot, with some downed light poles and flipped cars in downtown Philadelphia as a result.

It appears that the situation grew out of hand very quickly in Philadelphia as more and more people poured onto the streets.

Just after the game ended, Philly.com reported that the fans were “chaotic but peaceful” following the game, but reports from fans in the crowd and police scanners showed it quickly turned more dangerous, with reports of large-scale fights and serious injuries from fans who were struck by flying objects.

There was a report of an explosion in the 9th district which might have been the result of a broken power line. As a result of objects being thrown at them, police officers have been ordered to wear helmets and body armor.

Street lights were pulled down at Juniper and Market as people looted whilst shouting ‘everything is free’ and raided a gas station.

People don't even flinch at the FISA memo demonstrating an attempted semi-coup by the FBI and the democrats, but a fucking sports game causes riots

Whats new here ?????

World Series, Super Bowl and etc…

seem to end with riots. All it takes is a few local Animals being themselves.

But the police KNEW this would happen. What is their excuse?

I would suggest all such winner gatherings in the future be restricted to a heavily enforced safe area, absent of commercial business and vehicles.

Of course we could use the Liberal Logic and sue the NFL, city stadium owners and each NFL player for the damages and wrongful deaths that some time also occur.

Like they tried with Firearm Dealers and Manufacturers .
