More than 30 police officers were injured in Philadelphia when a violent mob rioted, looted, and set squad cars on fire after a knife-wielding black man was reportedly shot dead while charging at cops.  Protesters chanted “Black Lives Matter!” and “Say his name: Walter Wallace!”

Among the 30 officers who were hurt was a female sergeant, whose leg was broken when she was run over by a pickup truck, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

The violence escalated after police shot Walter Wallace — a 27-year-old black man — during a confrontation in West Philadelphia, a neighborhood that’s 76% black.

Wallace was armed with a knife and was charging at cops when he was shot, according to videos posted on social media: “The 911 caller stated a man was assaulting a woman.”

A witness told the Philadelphia Inquirer: “Wallace had a knife and was standing on the porch of his home. Wallace’s mother chased after him as he walked down the steps of his porch, still holding the knife.”

Police Sergeant Eric Gripp said the officers had ordered Wallace to drop his weapon, but he ignored their warnings and instead advanced toward them.

That’s when police shot Wallace, who was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

The aftermath of the shooting mimicked what usually happens with Black Lives Matter “protests”: Rioting, looting, vandalism of public and private property, and torching of police cars.

Multiple stores in West Philadelphia were looted, including several Rite Aid drugstores, some clothing and shoe stores and at least one restaurant. BLM rioters were also spotted trying to break into a check-cashing store and raiding a beauty-supply store.

Numerous cars were set on fire, and five police cars and one fire department vehicle were vandalized, according to authorities.

Officials said more than 30 rioters were arrested for throwing bricks and rocks at police.

Harrowing videos captured the violence on the streets of Democrat-run Philadelphia.

Looting clothing and shoe stores is a common occurrence during Black Lives Matter “protests.”

This latest riot in Philadelphia continues a long string of Black Lives Matter “protests” that have metastasized across the United States, thanks to the Democrats/BLM’s anti-police rhetoric.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said former president Barack Obama could stem this BLM terrorism if he wanted to, but he refuses. Why? Because Obama and the Democrat Party want to stoke a race war in order to terrify Americans into doing what they want.

“Obama is a smart man,” Carlson said. “Many people found him inspiring. But when the fog lifted after Obama’s eight years in office, what was left? A dying middle class. A nation more radically divided by race and by income. A population so hostile to their political leaders that they elected Donald Trump president.”

Tucker explained: “Obama sees the news. He knows the same young leaders he’s promoting burned buildings, looted stores, murdered people. Riots don’t heal wounds, they create them. The violence that Barack Obama’s youth brigades have unleashed on this country increased racial bigotry and distrust. The riots have certainly accelerated residential segregation as higher-income people flee the racially-diverse cities for sedate, monochromatic destinations like Martha’s Vineyard where, by the way, Obama himself lives.”

Carlson added: “Like any good arsonist, Obama was sure to exit the building before he lit the fire. Someday, Obama and many leaders like him may flee farther than that. An island off the coast of Massachusetts won’t be far enough. They will be in Switzerland by then or Austria or New Zealand or somewhere where they won’t have to live with the consequences of the society they created. But for the rest of us who plan to stay, we have no choice. We have to fight. Anarchism goes by many names, right now it’s called Antifa and BLM. But the poison is always the same, and the consequences of imbibing it never change. If we’re going to survive as a country, we must defeat this.”
