Fox News’ Leland Vittert: Philadelphia Looters Have The Upper Hand

Violence erupted in Philadelphia Monday night with reports of 30 officers injured after police shot and killed a 27-year-old knife-wielding assailant.

One of the injured officers was hit by demonstrators in a speeding pickup truck.

Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Ellie Rushing was on the scene within an hour of the shooting and reported that, according to witnesses, Walter Wallace Jr. had a knife but was not charging police.

Five hours after that tweet, Rushing clarified her initial tweet, noting that video showed Wallace coming at police with a knife.

Too late, Elle. Damage is done.

Fox News host Leland Vittert told WIBC host Tony Katz that looters in Philadelphia “have the upper hand.” Click below to listen.
