Biden urges finish to looting after Philadelphia Black man”s killing
WILMINGTON, Del. (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday urged calm amid ongoing unrest after a Black man was shot dead this week by police in Philadelphia, saying protesters had a right to peaceful demonstrations but not destruction.
“There`s no excuse whatsoever for the looting or the violence,” the former vice president told reporters after casting his ballot in Wilmington, Delaware.
Protesting Monday`s deadly police shooting of Walter Wallace, 27, “was totally legitimate, totally reasonable,” Biden said, but cited Wallace`s father`s plea to end the violence.
