ESTThe first thing to know about the deadly Philadelphia riots was the brutal, bloody aftermath.
For years, the city’s poorest, most marginalized citizens — those who had little or no formal education, lived in neighborhoods where violence was rife, and whose only hope was the safety of the police and their employers — faced the prospect of living in a city where they had little chance of escaping violent crimes.
In many cases, those living in those neighborhoods were killed by police.
The riots marked a watershed moment in the city.
It’s no surprise, then, that Philadelphia has become one of the most dangerous cities in the nation.
According to data compiled by the Violence Policy Center, Philadelphia has seen a surge in homicides since the riot that shook the city on April 19, 2009.
By mid-May, that number had increased to 1,942 deaths.
The violence has spread to other parts of the country.
The deadliest month in recent history, May 15-17, saw 471 killings, the most since March 2015.
The riot that followed the killing of six police officers on June 17, 2009, is also a prime example of the kind of violence that can occur when the police are not properly trained and trained poorly.
In the first few months after the riots, the police department responded with training programs that did not address the needs of people in the poorest neighborhoods.
The department also sent officers to neighborhoods that had a history of violence, like Piedmont Park, in North Philadelphia.
That program, which was designed to provide support to people living in poverty, did not adequately address the violence that plagued these communities.
On July 17, 2010, the Police Department opened its first new precinct in more than a decade, in Piedampone, a predominantly African American neighborhood on the northern edge of Philadelphia.
It was not a welcome step for residents in Paredmont Park.
Many residents were angry that the police had not made the streets safer.
Police had done their job, but not the job properly.
A year later, a series of officers who had participated in the rioting had been placed on administrative leave, and the department had lost a number of valuable resources.
These were the officers who responded to calls for help after the police shot and killed a man named Ronald Davis.
The officers who were put on leave were eventually terminated and placed on paid administrative leave.
As the riots continued, a police-community feud broke out, with the Philadelphia Police union claiming that the officers had acted out of personal vengeance against Davis.
That led to the resignation of the district attorney.
The riot that erupted in May 2011 was also sparked by a dispute between two police officers who, in turn, were trying to have their police force re-hired.
The most dangerous neighborhoods in Philadelphia are not the ones that have witnessed the worst violence.
The most dangerous are those that have experienced it the most.
The neighborhoods that have seen the most deaths are those most deprived, and these are the neighborhoods that were the most targeted in the riots.
A large number of the city is now on the list of the 25 most dangerous.
Philadelphia’s most violent neighborhoods have a median household income of $40,000 and are concentrated in the northeast and northwest areas of the region.
The neighborhoods that are most vulnerable are also the most diverse, with a high concentration of people of color and those with a low income.
The median household household income for these neighborhoods is $32,000.
The poorest neighborhoods in the Philadelphia area are in the suburbs.
In those areas, poverty is higher, and residents are most likely to be homeless.
The Philadelphia Police Department does not have a population count for its most dangerous areas, but the department does have data on the number of people who have been shot and died since the riots began.
The number of residents who have died in these neighborhoods in recent years is nearly three times the national average.
The data also show that people of all races and ethnicities live in these areas, with black people dying at nearly four times the rate of white people.
Philadelphia Police Chief Jason Van Dyke, who was elected to the city council in 2014, has made it clear that the department is working on addressing the problems in the most violent areas.
“We will do everything we can to prevent any further violence,” he said.
“There is no silver bullet.
There is no magic bullet.
But we are going to do everything possible to get to the bottom of it.”
But that doesn’t mean police officers will ever be able to take full responsibility for preventing future crimes.
Van Dykes department has been criticized for not fully integrating the department’s police officers, including the use of SWAT teams, body cameras and technology that could help prevent shootings by officers.In 2015
