The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, and hundreds of fans rioted, tearing up the city and destroying property. [When you look at these videos of violence and looting, you cannot help wondering what the police were doing during this time.

The murder rate has skyrocketed since members of Black Lives Matter began justifying violence as retaliation against law enforcement for the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died in the back of a police van in 2015. Residents now are blaming the murder spike on the lack of police action in the city, which is what BLM called for.
