Shootout between Hill and police officers
Video footage from a shooting between a black man and police officers has gone viral online. The footage was posted on Philly Scoop Hall, an online video site that frequently posts videos about police brutality and protests for criminal justice reform. The shooting took place at 15th and Erie avenues in Philadelphia’s North Side, a heavily black neighborhood. The video, which is the first to be posted online since the shooting, has accumulated over 3 million views.
A tense and frightening scene is painted by police testimony. Police found five guns and several empty magazines, capable of firing hundreds of rounds. Police were able to safely remove the frightened suspect, but two Philadelphia officers and three civilians were trapped inside. Police eventually called SWAT teams to free them. A wounded officer was found inside the house. Another officer was shot in the leg. The police officers could only reach one of the wounded police officers. A pedestrian also was injured.
The shootout was the last straw for both sides. The officers hoped for a calm and non-violent outcome. Officers called Hill to surrender, but he refused. Police then fired tear gas into the house and extracted the officers. Hill came out of the house with a gun. The shootout continued until about ten in the morning. Thankfully, Wright was a “good cop,” according to a source with knowledge of the case.
Video of Hill evading police
On Monday, Philadelphia police released surveillance video of suspects in the shooting death of 24-year-old Philly Hill. The video shows two suspects, the first of whom is wearing a hooded blue jacket with white stripes and walking with a noticeable limp. They both opened fire through the jacket pockets of Hill, and left the man dying in the street. Hill’s mother, Edwenna Ferguson, spoke out in a video posted on Facebook.
Before this incident, Hill was convicted of escaping from police and resisting arrest, among other crimes. In the past, he’s evaded arrest on charges ranging from kidnapping to attempted murder. In 2008, Hill spent time in federal prison after being caught with a Smith & Wesson.357 and a Taurus PT.45 semi-automatic. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years and seven months in prison.
On Jan. 24, police in Philadelphia released surveillance video of Hill evading police near Broad Street and Allegheny Avenue. The video shows two suspects who had been selling narcotics in the area of a domestic dispute. They were on the scene about 10-15 minutes before Hill was shot and killed. However, the video shows a different story. The police officers claiming to be in pursuit of Hill did not follow protocol and shot the teen.
The police officer who shot Hill after a traffic stop is still being investigated. The video was released as a result of a policy that promotes a fair investigation into fatal police encounters. Although Philadelphia is undergoing multi-million dollar reforms following the death of Walter Wallace Jr., the shooting remains controversial. The video has garnered a lot of attention. This case may also lead to more police training.
Owner Darden’s childhood in housing projects
Sherri Darden, publisher of the popular blog Scoop, grew up in Philadelphia’s housing projects. Her family lived in various neighborhoods throughout the city, including the Johnson Homes projects near 24th and Berks Streets. She has fond memories of the projects and believes she would do it all over again. She is determined to continue the legacy of Scoop in the community. In this interview, she tells of her childhood and how her experiences in Philadelphia’s housing projects have impacted her work.
Managing editor of Scoop quit after Darden couldn’t afford to pay her
Darden has acquired Scoop USA, a free weekly newspaper founded by Richard “Sonny” Driver in 1960. His articles on crime and corruption have helped to rename a street in Philadelphia in his honor. Darden plans not to dwell on the crime stories, but he will cover them in a way that keeps the readers’ attention. The Philadelphia Scoophall is located near Broad and Girard, near the city’s riverfront.
The Philadelphia Inquirer’s top editor, Stan Wischnowski, resigned after an article headlined “Buildings Matter, Too.” The article prompted a walkout from dozens of staff members, which led to a subsequent meeting of board members of the nonprofit Lenfest Institute for Journalism. Although Wischnowski’s resignation was accepted, his resignation has prompted the newspaper to look for a replacement.
The news is not good for Darden’s readers. Darden, a nonprofit university, has been struggling to pay its journalists. Darden couldn’t afford to pay Scoophall’s managing editor, and the newspaper is now in dire need of funding. Darden’s new owners can’t afford to pay her. Darden’s new owner will likely launch a new website and app, but for now the news is sad for many readers.
Philly Mag hired Kelly Kerkstra as its Deputy Editor in June 2014, replacing the Inquirer’s city hall bureau chief. Kerkstra, a former Inquirer City Hall bureau chief and freelancer, was a major force behind Philly Mag’s online vertical Citified during the 2015 mayoral race. However, the Philly Mag’s ownership lost patience with Citified’s strategy and the magazine opted for a second round of cuts.
