Total Anarchy: Rioters Wreak Havoc in Philadelphia

Whatever law and order once existed in Philadelphia is gone now. 

Rioters looted businesses and destroyed cop cars, ransacking through police vehicles in an apparent search for weapons and other items. 

As police left their patrol cars to protect businesses, many of them minority-owned, rioters set fire to the parked police vehicles.

A mob of looters descended on SunRay Drugs in West Philadelphia. 

President Trump tweeted "Law & Order in Philadelphia, NOW!" and called for the state to send in the National Guard as other states are now doing in response to the riots.

Philadelphia police reported 215 arrests on Sunday afternoon, and the city ordered all retail stores to close as the widespread looting continues. An overnight curfew will remain in effect from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. 

On Saturday, President Trump warned liberal governors and mayors to toughen their response to the destructive riots or risk a response from the federal government.
