SUPER BOWL MAYHEM: PHILADELPHIA CELEBRATES WITH FIRES, LOOTING AND SHOOTING

Last night, after underdog Eagles defeated Tom Brady and the Pats to win the Superbowl, we predicted that "Philly GDP was set for a major Keynesian boost tonight"...

Philly GDP set for a major Keynesian boost tonight

Sure enough, thousands of ecstatic Eagles fans took to the streets of Philadelphia Sunday night after their first ever Super Bowl win, beating the five-time champion New England Patriots 41-33 at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Earlier in the day, Philly was hard at work preparing for whatever outcome was in store for the Eagles - including officers from 60 additional police departments, 400 National Guard members, US Secret Service, ICE, FBI, private security, County Sheriff's Reserves, and over 10,000 civilian volunteers. Oh, and they also greased up the light poles for good measure:

And despite all of that, tens of thousands of crazed Eagles fans poured into the streets and promptly chimped out with joy - much of which can be found in the Twitter feed of Barstool Sports.

As expected, celebrations of the historic Super Bowl victory of the Philadelphia Eagles led to havoc on Sunday night, as cheering crowds damaged property and turned cars upside down, and an explosion of unknown ripped in the downtown area and several people were injured in street violence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; were all those additional officers, the 400 national guard members, US Secret Service, ICE, and FBI members, private security, County Sherrif's Reserves, and over 10,000 cvilian volunteers ordered, collectively, to stand down, so that the rioting, looting, and destruction of property could get as bad as it possibly could, as some kind of "catharsis" for a city population still experiencing poverty for over 25% of its citizens?!?

Philadelphia's Poor

The article goes on to state:

"Poverty is one of Philadelphia’s most enduring problems. At 25.7 percent, the poverty rate is the highest among the nation’s 10 largest cities. About 400,000 residents—including roughly 37 percent of the city’s children under the age of 18—live below the federal poverty line, which is $19,337 in annual income for an adult living with two children. And nearly half of all poor residents are in deep poverty, defined as 50 percent below the federal poverty line."
