Philly Police Staff Inspector Joseph Bologna Hit with ‘Baseless’ Charges: ‘Sign of PPD Apocalypse’

PHILADELPHIA Police arrested decorated Staff Inspector Joseph Bologna Jr, who is assigned to the Police Department’s Patrol Bureau, Your Content has learned.

Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw released a statement Friday announcing the arrest of Inspector Bologna, noting she hadn’t read the complaint.

Inspector Bologna was charged on Friday after video emerged of an incident in which protesters grappled with cops and one student was struck by a baton as he snatched it from the officer’s hands.

While I have not been made privy to the entirety of the information that led to Mr. Krasner’s decision to charge Staff Inspector Bologna today, I am aware that the charges stem from an incident involving the application of force.”

The incident unfolded on Monday during a demonstration at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway protesting the death of George Floyd.

It was around 5.30pm, as the city’s 6pm curfew neared, and police were apparently attempting to disperse the crowd and get them to go home. 

“As a Department, we do not condone the criminal acts of any person, and it is my sincere hope that the District Attorney does, in fact, hold all people who cause harm to others equally accountable.”

Krasner was elected to office last year on a social justice platform, and his campaign was backed by a PAC funded by billionaire financier George Soros.

“He was a great boss and an overall great guy,” one of several officers from the Philadelphia Police Department told Your Content under the condition of anonymity.

“Not deserving of this.”

A second officer said she plans on cutting ties with the department, describing the atmosphere as a sleazy political dormitory.

“Things like this make me think differently about being a police officer in Philadelphia.”

“I see why officers I know recommend to me to look else where.”

“Inspector Bologna was the boss I ever had. And I’ve modeled most of my interactions with my people after him. He is a man most people would follow into hell, knowing he’d bring them out again,” said a third officer. 

“He doesn’t deserve what’s coming.”

A fourth officer added: “This is a guy that honest to God cares about this city and what happens to it.”

As Your Content readers know, officers were met with chemical weapons during an all-out war in the streets of Philadelphia. 

“The city wants us to just stand there and get hit with bricks, bleach and bodily fluids oh and frozen bottles of water!” said a fifth officer.

“He is an absolute ACE. This is truly a sign of the PPD apocalypse.”

John McNesby, president secretary of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, the union representing Philadelphia police, said he is “disgusted” by Bologna’s arrest.

“He was engaged in a volatile and chaotic situation with only milliseconds to make a decision,” McNesby said in a statement. “Once again, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner has rushed to judgement in filing these criminal charges without a complete and thorough investigation. These charges clearly illustrate Krasner’s anti-police agenda.”

Last year, William McSwain, whom President Donald Trump appointed as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, laid into the city’s district attorney, telling reporters: “I believe he is putting police at risk and putting the public at risk.”

McSwain also said he was “fed up” with a “new culture of disrespect for law enforcement” in Philadelphia that he said was being “championed” by Krasner, a former civil rights lawyer.

“Inspector Bologna’s dedication to our city for over 30 years is unmatched.”

“This issuance of an arrest warrant for Bologna comes on the same day police issued a new catch and release policy for those who assault police officers,” McNesby said. 

“Why are officers not afforded those same basic rights?”

McNesby confirms Krasner is working hand-in-glove with rioters — several of which were confirmed to be members of the terrorist organization Antifa — to destroy the city. 

“Along with arsonists, looters and thieves, Krasner is complicit in the destruction of our city”

The union will support Inspector Bologna through the charges in which they deem baseless.
