Philadelphia on the brink: liberal city is losing war on drug use

A reporter went into several areas of the city and witnessed what she considered to be an epidemic of heroin, methamphetamine and fentanyl.

The drug problem in Philadelphia is becoming increasingly evident and alarming, as investigative journalist Sara Carter reported after going into Kensington and other areas of the city.

As the reporter explained exclusively for the "Hannity" program, there is a strong epidemic of heroin, methamphetamine, and fentanyl that can be perceived just by passing through some neighborhoods in the city, especially in Kensington.

Carter said she walked several blocks in the neighborhood and witnessed a large number of people injecting illicit substances on the street. She claimed that most of these drugs are supplied by Mexican cartels.

"Just so you can get a perspective here, 95% of the narcotics here in Philadelphia, according to law enforcement sources I've spoken to today, are coming from the Sinaloa Cartel," she said.

The reporter said that the drugs are making their way into the country unnoticed through an open area of the southern border and reaching Philadelphia, seriously affecting the people of the city.

Carter explained that parents go to pick up their children from school and as they walk home they have to talk to them about drug use because of the number of addicts on the streets.

However, the reporter stressed that it is not only about them, but also about the consumers of these types of substances.

"These are Americans that are dying on the streets. And I talked to law enforcement officials that believe that this is just the tip of the iceberg," she said.

Shocking report

The drug crisis in Kensington has become so alarming that a YouTube content creator with a channel called KimGary decided to start recording his walks through the neighborhood to show the number of people on the streets completely affected by illicit substances.

KimGary has managed to attract the attention of thousands of people with his videos, all of which contain minimal editing and have practically the same title: "True Story" Streets of Philadelphia.

However, his videos are a great example of the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words," especially when the images are as shocking as these.
