Incident in Philadelphia (3)

Latest in a series of posts in the wake of the George Floyd murder

The subject’s name was Walter Wallace.

Gadfly has refrained from extended comment on this October 26 incident — which he referenced centrally in his brief comments at City Council last night — waiting for a major press conference and a sense that all (or most!) of the relevant facts are in. Gadfly suggests you read what’s available for now and begin to gather your thoughts.

Gadfly invites suggestions for other news sources to read:

Maryclaire Dale, “Philadelphia police face rebuke from city, Wallace family.” Associated Press, October 29, 2020.

Walter Wallace Jr.’s family does not want officers who shot him to face murder charges, attorney says.” CNN, October 29, 2020.
