But despite the spiraling crime wave in the city, Mayor Jim Keney rejected the idea of bringing the National Guard to Philadelphia, saying on Wednesday he didn't think it was would be an "efficient " solution. tool for bringing in people in uniform, camouflaged and wearingguns and helmets to solve this problem. "
" We used the National Guard during the time of civil unrest to secure areas that needed to be safe from looting and fire , and it allowed the police to do other things, "said Mayor Kenney on Wednesday in a press conference on the city's response to gun violence.
"But sending the National Guard and a troop transporter to a neighborhood in Philadelphia, to me, is not respectful of that neighborhood, number one. Second, they are not capable or trained to do city policing, or policing of any kind. "
