Crime is up in several Democrat-run cities.
And the violence isn’t only occurring in the streets.
Because a fight just broke out at the Eagles’ home airport.
Air travel is stressful enough.
It gets even worse when fights break out between passengers and airline employees.
Such was the case at the Philadelphia International Airport when a passenger brawled with an employee for Spirit Airlines.
Oversized baggage fees blamed for melee
The ugly incident lasted several minutes, and concluded with the passenger having her bra exposed and wig snatched off.

Supposedly the fight was instigated when the passenger learned that she would have to pay fees for oversized luggage.
The Philadelphia police department wrote in a statement that “police received information that several passengers were pulling apart a 24-year-old female complainant and a 17-year-old female along with her 39-year-old mother during an argument over additional baggage fees…At this time, the 17 year old female attempted to access Jetway and was halted by the 24-year-old complainant when she was punched/hair pulled by the 17-year-old female being assisted by her 39-year-old mother. The 24-year-old female sustained a minor eyelid laceration. All participants were advised by police in reference to private criminal complaint documentation.”
Spirit is a no-frills budget airline that upcharges for just about everything.
The airline is also notorious for ugly fights with passengers.
The Daily Mail reported that “[l]ast August a male agent was caught on video at Dallas Fort Worth airport tackling and punching a young woman who had racially abused and slapped him…And in November 2021 two flight attendants had to restrain and zip tie a drunk passenger who stormed to the front of a plane mid-flight with her luggage and declared: ‘I’m getting off.’”
Philadelphia has had serious issues with crime over the past few years.
George Soros-backed District Attorney Larry Krasner has had some of the bloodiest years in city history on his watch.
Not even professional athletes are safe.
Philadelphia Eagles defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson discovered that his car had been stolen after a Divisional Round playoff win over the rival New York Giants.
In a moment of frustration, Mayor Jim Kenney admitted to a reporter, “I’m waiting for something bad to happen all the time. So I’ll be happy when I’m not here, when I’m not mayor, and I can enjoy some stuff.”
City officials told him to go ahead and resign, but he walked back his statement.
Outside of the Eagles possibly beating the Chiefs in the Super Bowl, he’s not likely to get to “enjoy some stuff” until his term ends.
Then again, win or lose, who knows what kind of chaos could come to Philly streets after the Super Bowl.
