    Who would have thought college kids would use drugs?

    This is not going to help the Campus Carry movement.

    Prayers for all the GGs. Strengthen them, O Lord, so that they might strike out the evil that seeks to harm Thy faithful servants.

    Swat snipers in turret of assault trucks.

    Apparently narcotic officers serving a drug warrant. Initial contact and the officers called for everything to back them up.

    "Police were first called to the scene for narcotics activity, according to Philadelphia Police Capt. Sekou Kinebrew.

    temple is the only safe-ish place where it is. stray off the property even a foot and you are in no mans land, at least regarding the type of people who would go to temple.

    for the regular residents of the city, they tend not to be in that area unless there is explicit purpose and then leave immediately. the denizens who haunt that part of the city dont like outsiders.
