Joe Biden is desperately trying to win the BLM vote by supporting a knife wielding criminal who was killed by police. Walter Wallace Jr. was shot by Philadelphia police after he charged towards officers with a knife.
He had a lengthy criminal record and a long history of mental health issues. Once again BLM turns a criminal into a martyr while they ignore the death of innocent Black children in American cities.
President Trump is the law and order candidate. Joe Biden supports BLM and Antifa. It’s as simple as that. The latest example of Biden’s pandering to criminals came on Wednesday when he tweeted his support for Walter Wallace Jr., a mentally ill career criminal who attempted to stab police officers in Philadelphia.
Biden’s tweet was especially reckless since these recent BLM riots have led to dozens of deaths and tremendous amounts of property damage. More than 30 Philadelphia police officers have already been injured in the days following the shooting. You can read Biden’s statement below.
Our hearts are broken for the family of Walter Wallace Jr., and for all those suffering the emotional weight of learning about another Black life in America lost.
Walter’s life mattered. https://t.co/mGki28Cpyr

Biden panders to radical Left
Joe Biden claims he’s heartbroken for Wallace’s family. However, there’s no mention of the brave police officers who risk their lives daily to work that dangerous, mostly thankless job.
Twitter users were quick to attack Biden for his shameless pandering to the radical Left. “Tell me more about how the problem is conservatives amplifying riots,” one reply said. “Joe Biden would have rather let the cop get stabbed to death.”
In 2020, America has witnessed some of the most violent and destructive riots in recent history. It all began back in late May when George Floyd, another career criminal who served multiple prison sentences, died while in custody of Minneapolis police.
Cell phone footage of the arrest went viral showing Officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on the back of Floyd’s neck while Floyd screamed that he couldn’t breathe.
Footage that was later released revealed that Floyd was struggling to breathe before he was even put on the ground by officers. Toxicology reports discovered that Floyd had lethal doses of methamphetamine and fentanyl in his system, ultimately leading to his death by overdose and not strangulation. Unfortunately, this information came out far too late. The damage was done.
Floyds apparent death at the hands of police set off a firestorm of riots and looting in cities across the country. Just a few weeks later, the riots had claimed the lives of 19 more people, including several law enforcement officers. Since then, several more Black men have been killed by police, each time kicking off new violence and destruction by BLM and their supporters.
Philadelphia police shoot armed criminal
The most recent case in Philadelphia is yet another example of self defense and justifiable homicide by police. Walter Wallace Jr. was not a good person. His own family claimed he was bipolar and they couldn’t confirm whether or not he was taking his prescribed medications. Back in 2013, Wallace pled guilty to assault and resisting arrest after he punched a police officer in the face.
At the time of the fatal police shooting, Walter Wallace Jr. was awaiting trial for allegedly threatening to shoot a woman’s house up. ABC News reports, “In 2017, Wallace pled guilty to robbery, assault, and possessing an instrument of crime after kicking down the door of another woman and putting a gun to her head. He was sentenced to 11-23 months behind bars.”
Philadelphia police were called to Wallace’s home twice in the days leading up to the shooting. Both times he was causing domestic disturbances. On Monday, police responded to the home again and found Wallace outside wielding a knife. Wallace ignored commands to drop the knife and instead charged at officers, forcing them to shoot in self defense. You can watch the graphic footage of the incident below.
