Remembering Frank Rizzo, Philadelphia's Former Mayor And Police Commissioner, Twenty Years After His Death

Admirers of Frank Rizzo gathered Saturday at his statute in Center City Philadelphia to remember and honor the late mayor and police commissioner on the 20th anniversary of his death.

You can read about the event in the below link to the Philadelphia Inquirer:

There have been several books written about the controversial mayor and top cop of Philadelphia, but I recommend The Cop Who Would Be King: The Honorable Frank Rizzo by Joseph R. Daughan and Peter Binzen.

  1. Yes, let's go back to those times. Who could forget justice where we didn't put up with any crap? Like the Kent State Massacre, where National Guardsmen fired on anti-war protesters. Four American's killed and nine wounded on May 4th, 1970 simply for anti-war protests. Yep, those were great days to remember in America.
