I guess the choice was stay home and study for tomorrow’s math exam or roam the streets randomly slashing tires. Good choice. It takes a village to raise feral dogs.

West Philadelphia residents along two blocks woke up Monday morning to find a total of 56 cars with their tires slashed, Philadelphia Police reported.
At least 48 vehicles on Hazel Avenue between 49th Street and 51st Street had tires slashed, and 8 vehicles on the 5300 block of Chancellor Street were also vandalized.
Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey announced a $5,000 reward for the arrest and conviction “of those responsible for this malicious act of violence, courtesy of the Mayor’s Office,” the department said in a news release. “We urge anyone with information about this criminal act to come forward and help us put an end to this senseless and hurtful crime.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the local Fraternal Order of Police are also contributing $5,000 to the reward for an arrest, bringing the total to $10,000.
