  1. hey just another day there. I am so glad I got out of there years ago.
    here a fun fact. less than 1/2 of all shootings make the news there.
    unless someone dies, back pages of the paper. might get a mention at 11 pm.
    working 3 shift at HUP ER, we use to pray for bad weather, rain, snow, cold.
    anything that kept them inside and not out shooting or beating each other up.
    summer time was the worse. at least 4-9 trauma calls a shift. sometimes more even.
    they paid well, but you risked getting robbed or shot, stabbed or beat up just going to work
    every night there. and back then, they HAD the 3rd largest police force in the state too.
    got so bad, the nurses had to be escorted to and from their cars or they would not work.

    1. I used to work at Penn's Ophthalmology Department (Scheie Eye Institute) at Presbyterian. Presbyterian is now the West Philly trauma center, probably because at 40th and Market, it's a few blocks closer to the action.

  2. The motto "City of Brotherly Love" needs to be changed to "In Da Hood of Bro's & Ho's Anything Goes". Welcome to another Soros D.A. town.
