Poll: Philadelphians are more pessimistic than they have been in over a decade
PHILADELPHIA - A new poll from the Pew Research Center found that Philadelphia residents are the most pessimistic they have been in over a decade. Researchers found that 63% of people polled believe that Philadelphia is on the wrong track, with gun violence receiving the lion's share of the blame. According to the latest data from the Philadelphia Police Department, there have been 127 homicides in the city this year which outpaces a historically bloody 2021. "A lot of evidence that crime has gone up, and it makes people very frustrated, very scared, and very at a loss of what to do about it," Attorney and CEO of Advocate To Win Heather Hansen said.U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams stopped by Good Day Philadelphia to discuss the ‘All Hands on Deck’ initiative that focused local, state, and federal law enforcement efforts on stopping gun violence.She believes that the COVID-19 pandemic secluded people from societal norms of behaving with courtesy, as evident by a violence spike in hospitals and airplanes. "It’s in large part because we’ve forgotten how to be patient, how to wait, how to interact in public," Hansen said.Philadelphians exhausted and frightened by the constant threat of violence, drugs and other street crimes would like to see more police, according to the poll. "I’m just concerned," said Jeff Benson, who has a daughter that lives in Philadelphia.

Fonseka calls for impartial probe on Army, Police confrontation
COLOMBO (News 1st) Parliamentarian and Former Commander of the Sri Lanka Army Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka said he does not condone the presence of Army Riders during a protest close to parliament on Tuesday (5).“I saw the video of the said incident, and it was observed that the Army Registration Number placed on the side and back of the motorbikes,” he told the Parliament while calling for an investigation to determine if the team of Army Riders arrived on their own or if they were sent to the location of the protest.At the same time, the Former Army Commander strongly condemned the actions of the Police Officers who were seen berating a uniformed soldier in the presence of the public.“If the same happens to a Police Officer, I would side with the victim,” he said while noting that as a Senior Ranked Military Officer he does not approve of the presence of Army Riders at a protest location.“A person could have snatched the weapon and shot the soldier,” he told the house, adding that the movement of soldiers in such places is not wise.Recalling similar incidents of the past, the Former Army Commander said there were times that soldiers cross into LTTE territory and were captured and killed.There needs to be an independent and impartial investigation, and if the soldiers are found to be wrong the Army Commander should take action, and if the police officer is found guilty, the IGP must take action, said the Former Army Commander and current Member of Parliament.
