In Philadelphia, hundreds of people took to the streets for a second straight night Tuesday to protest the police killing of Walter Wallace Jr., a 27-year-old Black man who was shot and killed by two Philadelphia police officers Monday while having a mental health crisis. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf called out the National Guard to help quell the protests after some people set fires and broke into businesses. On Tuesday evening, Walter Wallace Sr. called for an end to chaos and looting — but demanded justice for his son.
Walter Wallace Sr.: “Somebody has to be held accountable for what they did. If you’re going to call a justified shooting multiple times, I mean, what kind of law we have?”
