A teenage robber in Philly attempted to rob people when he was in the inner city. Needless to say, things didn’t go well for him and he ended up getting an instant dose of karma! The robber was stabbed several different times when he was attempting to rob people in South Philadelphia. The attempted crime happened at Smith Playground at 25th Street and Snyder Avenue at 7 p.m. last Wednesday.
Teenage Robber Gets Karma in the Ribs!
The police interviewed some witnesses, and they described how the 18-year-old man had been stabbed approximately 10 times in the back. The officers took the man to the hospital, and he is in stable condition. They haven’t made any arrests as of yet.
It also wasn’t clear if the teen had actually been successful at robbing anyone. Nor was it clear if the person who had stabbed him had been one of his intended victims.
Philadelphia News Chopper 6 indicated that there had been some police activity on 25th Street between the playground and one of the U.S. post office locations within the city. This is yet another incident of violence for Philly, and this spike in violence is up 32% over the past year. Indeed, there has unfortunately been a rash of homicides in the city since the past year.
The latest homicide was a 31-year-old man who was shot multiple times in the 4000 block of Lancaster Avenue last Monday at around 8:30 a.m. They rushed him to an area hospital but he later passed away.

Violent Crime is Destroying America
This is one grim milestone indeed, and Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has announced that the city is going to hold weekly briefings on the crime statistics. “These briefings will be open to the media and will be publicly streamed on Philadelphia’s Facebook page.”
All I have to say is that if this was indeed a situation where this individual was stabbed by people attempting to defend themselves, then kudos to them. Another thing I have to say is heaven forbid if this teen (Thug?) had actually had a gun instead of a knife.
In closing, this is definitely one of the main reasons why I continue to stand behind the Second Amendment. Law-abiding citizens have a right to defend themselves, and the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun would be from that of a good guy with a gun.
