Riots began in Philadelphia on Monday night after the police shot and killed Walter Wallace, age 27. Police say that the decedent threatened them with a knife and refused to drop his weapon; video shows that police told him to drop the knife at least two times before shooting. His family called the police because he was having a mental breakdown. Wallace has an extensive criminal record and was first arrested in 2006 for assaulting a teacher when he was 13 years old. He was arrested in March after he allegedly threatened his child’s mother over the phone, saying “I’ll shoot you and that house up.” In 2019, he was charged with resisting arrest by “kicking the windows and door panels of a police patrol car.” In 2016, during a robbery, he allegedly grabbed a woman by the neck and held what she believed to be a gun to her head, according to court records. In 2013, Wallace’s mother had a protective order against him which he allegedly violated when he “threw water in her face and punched her in the face” and “threatened to return and shoot” her, according to court records.
