As the city of Philadelphia faces violent unrest over a police-involved shooting that occurred on Monday, officials are reportedly investigating potential explosives found in a van, per local outlets. An influx of civil disturbance began after Philadelphia law enforcement officials shot and killed Walter Wallace, who reportedly charged at police officers with a knife and refused to surrender the weapon, officials said.

Law enforcement is investigating the “suspicious equipment” thought to be explosives.

Rioting and looting erupted from violent protesters in response to Wallace’s shooting, which is still under investigation by local law enforcement and officials, as Julio saw on the ground:

In response to the unhinged violence, local officials implemented a 9 p.m. citywide curfew, ahead of Pennsylvania’s National Guard arriving in the city later in the week.

After the Senate confirmed Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday night, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) weighed in on the future of the size of the high court.

As her party begins to embrace the idea of “court packing,” or expanding the size of the Supreme Court, Speaker Pelosi said that a 9-justice court could be obsolete. Speaker Pelosi also hinted that the federal courts may need to be expanded in size: “Should we expand the courts? Let’s take a look and see. Maybe we need more District Courts as well,” she said.

The idea of “court packing” remains vastly unpopular with the American people, to various degrees, among Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

Despite the political posturing coming from Democrats, the majority of Americans also favored confirming now-Justice Barrett to the highest court in the land.

Senate Democrats blocked another coronavirus relief package proposed by Republicans during a floor vote on Tuesday. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) attempted to adjourn the upper chamber on Monday night as Republicans tried to pass additional relief. The GOP-proposed package also included additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which served as a lifeline for small businesses affected by COVID-19. Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans pressed Senate Democrats to put the American people first, but the minority party blocked the stimulus package, again.

Democrats have continually blocked the passage of additional relief, and refused to negotiate in good faith.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) voiced their opposition to President Trump’s plan to send federal agents to cities facing unrest and violence on Thursday. President Trump said that protecting the American people was his “first duty:”

“We’ll work every single day to restore public safety, protect our nation’s children and bring violent perpetrators to justice…we have no choice but to get involved,” the president said. “My first duty as President is to protect the American people.”

Speaker Pelosi called the law enforcement officers being sent to cities as “stormtroopers” and Sen. Schumer deemed the president’s action as “un-American:”

The law enforcement officers being deployed to cities are not “storm troopers” as Speaker Pelosi says, but rather federal agents enforcing the law. The negligence of Democratic mayors nationwide completely justifies the president’s action to restore law and order and crack down on violence.
