It’s been a week since Philadelphia police officers killed Walter Wallace, Jr, a 27-year-old father with past mental health issues. The broad-daylight killing occurred at 61st and Locust streets and was caught on video, which has subsequently gone viral. This neighborhood then became the scene for multiple rallies, protests and fires, images akin to late May, when uprisings in West Philly occurred after the Memorial Day death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.
