Looks like the cops standing down in Philly had a ‘slightly’ different ending than the mayor hoped…
Eleven people were shot during riots in Mayor Jim Kenney’s (D) Philadelphia last night, as violence reached a point of “looters shooting looters,” Fox 29’s Steve Keeley reported.

So, it’s come to the point that the late comers are just capping the ones that did all the work, carjacking and/or shooting them and taking their stolen stuff…
Thanks for all those votes for Trump! Sigh…
And in other news, there’s apparently a new/rejuvenated phishing scam for your Google password! From the Mil email string…
The Phishing Scam is After Your Google Password. Don’t
let your curiosity get the better of you. A new scam appears
to be an email from Google, informing you that someone
has shared a photo album. But it’s really a phishing scheme
that’s after your password.
How the Scam Works – You get an email or text message
that appears to come from Google Photo. Someone is shar-
ing an album of photos with you. To view the photos, you
just need to click the link. The message looks so real! It may
use a convincing URL, which has been created by Google’s
goo.gl URL shortener to appear to be an official Google
domain name. The message also seems to come from the
email [email protected] The catch? There is no
photo album. It’s a phishing con. When you click the “View
Photo” link, it will open in your web browser and prompt
you to log into your Google account. If you enter your in-
formation, you are giving scammers your username and
password. Con artists can now access your email account as

How to avoid a phishing scam -Follow these tips to pro-
tect yourself from this and other online phishing scams.
– Never click on links in unsolicited messages. Phishing
scams direct you to websites that look official, but these
sites may be infected with malware. If you don’t know and
trust the person who sent you the message, don’t click on
– Be careful with shortened links. Con artists often use link
shorteners, such as Bit.ly or Goo.gl, to disguise scam links.
Be extra cautious when following one of these links because
you can’t tell where it leads.
– If it seems strange, it may be a scam. Be wary of any mes-
sage that comes from a friend but seems out of character.
(For example, an old work acquaintance who contacts you
out of the blue.) It may have originated from their account,
but they could be victims, too.
– Don’t fall for “urgent” scams. Scammers like to cause
alarm to create urgency. You might get a message that indi-
cates you’re in a compromising video, your password is
being reset, your account is in danger of deactivation, or
some other dire situation that needs immediate attention. If
it seems unlikely, watch out.
