The father of the 27 years old Walter Wallace that was shot by the police has appeal for calm. Tension has heightened in the street of Philadelphia since on Monday when police shot Walter Wallace, 27, who was armed with a knife and described by relatives as suffering from a mental breakdown, in a confrontation with law enforcement

Hundreds of protesters and marchers filled the street demanding racial justice with some confrontation with police from on Monday into early Wednesday. Philadelphia has become the latest flashpoint in the United States on issues of race and police use of force just days ahead of Tuesday’s presidential election

The renewed violence has sparked clashes between demonstrators and the police; there have also been reports of looting going on as videos on various social media show looters breaking into various stores. In the city’s Port Richmond section aerial news video from WPVI television showed looters broking into businesses and stores. The death of Walter Wallace is among the series of police-related death in the United State of America as we race towards the Presidential election.

President Trump who is seeking a second term in office has made policing a top campaign issue, with the White House overnight saying his administration is ready “to deploy any and all federal resources to end these riots.”

The current outbreak of violence came hours after a bystander’s video of policing shooting Walter Wallace was posted on social media. The video showed Wallace approaching two police officers who had drawn their guns and warned him to put down the knife. The officers were backing up before the camera cut briefly away as gunfire erupted and Wallace collapsed.
