John Lewis was arrested today, in Miami, for killing Philadelphia police officer Charles Cassidy. Lewis fled to Miami on a Greyhound bus. Interestingly, Miami’s police chief, John Timoney, had ordered increased vigilance in an effort to find and capture Lewis.
Timoney was Philadelphia’s police chief under former mayor (current PA governor, Eagles post-game analyst) Ed Rendell. He was hoisted when the current administration took office. Now, eight years later, with violent crime at its highest marks since 1990, the most wanted criminal in Philadelphia is captured, without incident, by our former police commissioner.
Irony, oh how we love you.
