Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf told press that he hopes things in the city of Philadelphia don’t “escalate into anything other than the peaceful protests that this kind of thing brings out.” Rioting, looting, and violence accompanied the protests in Philadelphia since Monday night in the wake of the police shooting of Walter Wallace. Thirty police officers were injured by protestors on Monday, with one sergeant being hit by a truck and suffering a broken leg. “Everyone is really sad by the death of the victim,” Wolf told press. “And I think I share in mourning with the family. Anytime that happens is a tragedy, for whatever reason. And I think we need to make sure that we follow up, find out what happened. I and my staff have been in constant communication since last night with the folks in Philadelphia.
