    A 21 year old woman was at traffic court to retrieve her impounded car. At some point she stepped outside and she encountered her ex boyfriend and a fight ensued.

    Reports are at least four men beat on the woman who was pronounced dead at the hospital. One man has been arrested.

    It probably happened fast. First lots of yelling and carrying on and then after she was hit once and went down the others likely packed on her and started stomping on her in a frenzy.

    I can't blame the bystanders much. Even though PA is a right to carry state this was outside of traffic court which meant most decent citizens would not be armed. It would be over in a minute or two before help could be summoned. To get involved in that mess would be certain injury or death to whomever tried.

    Filly, I live right across the bridge in Jersey. I can't even watch the news anymore, it's gotten completely out of control. Are any parts of Philadelphia safe these days? And now, the HS basketball player that got shot last night? http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?section=news/local&id=7945530

    Something has GOT to be done. It's down right scary anymore. Filly, stay safe.

    Thanks Steelergirl. Admittedly it's been scary for awhile. What are they going to do? Cops are getting shot so they sure as heck are going to do whatever they want. Some crazy chase by the Ben Franklin I think yesterday.

    Oddly I thought Camden was just going to go haywire once they laid off the cops and fire fighters. Nope we have it going on here.

    This poor girl. Tovoyia was mourned at Cheyney University where she was a fresheman.
