Our governor was so afraid of lawful protesters that he actually canceled an event at one of our public schools here in Philly. Keep in mind that this is one of the best public schools in America, and my man was in zero danger. (Although, believe it or not, there was a shooting at a high school today in our fair city.)
The governor says that he was "saddened and disappointed" that he didn't get to go, but we all know better.
"Gov. Corbett originally planned to spend the morning presenting educational achievement awards at Central High School - his first visit to a traditional Philadelphia public school since taking office.
But a large protest over education cuts during his administration caused him to divert his plans.
Corbett, speaking to reporters at the Bellevue in Center City, said he was "saddened and disappointed" he couldn't go to Central.
"Today wasn't supposed to be about politics, it wasn't supposed to be about contracts, it wasn't supposed to be about negotiations. It was supposed to be about the students," Corbett said. "I decided not to engage in the theatrics that have been designed by adults."
Finally, the po po here in Philly have taken this "stop and frisk" thing to a whole different level.
One poor straight A student was profiled and arrested and the female officer helping to make the arrest grabbed his...ahem ahem, manhood so hard that he ruptured his testicles and it required surgery.
The poor kid more than likely will never be able to have children.
Although honestly, given the kind of world that we live in and the dangers that young black men face on a daily basis, I am not sure why he would want to.
