Ursinus Student Arrested During Anti-Hate Protest; New Delco Vaccine Site Opens; 11 Shot, 3 Dead Sat
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A Ursinus College student was arrested on Friday night, 4/9, supposedly after confronting Collegeville Police about the officers' lack of wearing masks in public. The exact details leading up to his arrest are not clear. The contentious arrest was caught on video by another student and posted on Instagram (see below). It showed the male student struggling with two officers on the ground as they tried to handcuff him. He is yelling profanities and makes numerous requests of the officers to make sure his mask is kept on. Ursinus College officials say they are working with police to determine what happened. "Our focus is on his well-being, and we are working hard to support a quick resolution to this matter that is least disruptive to our student and his future," said a statement from the college.

This happened just off-campus around 7 p.m. on Main Street. Students had gathered to counter-protest an anti-LGBT 'church' hate group that was protesting outside campus. The group* was yelling disparaging remarks at women as well as LGBT slurs. This past week was Pride Week at Ursinus. Students say that this group demonstrates at the school once or twice a year.

*Correction* 04/12/21 - This group was previously identified as the identified as the Philadelphia Church of God based in Edmond, OK. In a statement sent to iradiophilly, "The Edmond, Oklahoma-based Philadelphia Church of God, Inc. is in NO WAY associated with this group... The Philadelphia Church of God condemns the repugnant behavior ascribed to us. Our members, located in over 60 countries worldwide, have never engaged in such behavior."

A large-scale community vaccination site opened up on Saturday, 4/10, at Delaware County Community College. The site offers drive-thru vaccinations and will operate each weekend as long as needed. "We're very excited about that. This week we're going to do about 4,500 doses over the weekend with the site, with the site having a max capacity of about 6,000 a day," said Dr. Monica Taylor, vice-chair of the Delaware County Council. This site is the sixth vaccination site for Delaware County. All six sites are by appointment only. This site is drive-thru, no need to get out of your car. Phase 1C becomes eligible on Monday, April 12 and eligibility opens to everyone 16+ on April 19.

SIGN UP for Delaware County Vaccines:

Eleven people were shot and three were killed in gun violence across Philadelphia on Saturday, 4/10. The victims ranged in age from 10 - 34. North, South, and Southwest Philadelphia saw shootings. This past week local and federal authorities announced a new task force to combine resources to fight gun violence. No arrests have been made.

UPDATE: Police now say that a 10-year-old boy that reportedly suffered a graze wound from a gun shot on Saturday night was instead cut.
