Philadelphia, PA: Streets of Philadelphia, Kensington Ave Documentary

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat


In Philadelphia as a whole, violent crime and drug abuse are major issues. The city has a higher rate of violent crime than the national average and other similarly sized metropolitan areas.  

The drug overdose rate in Philadelphia is also concerning. Between 2013 and 2015, the number of drug overdose deaths in the city increased by 50%, with more than twice as many deaths from overdoses as homicides. 2 Kensington's high crime rate and drug abuse contribute significantly to Philadelphia's problems.

Because of the high number of drugs in the neighborhood, Kensington has the third-highest drug crime rate by neighborhood in Philadelphia, at 3.57. The opioid epidemic has played a significant role in this problem, as it has in much of the rest of the country. 

Opioid abuse has skyrocketed in the United States over the last two decades, and Philadelphia is no exception. In addition to having a high rate of drug overdose deaths, 80% of Philadelphia's overdose deaths involved opioids, and Kensington is a significant contributor to this figure. 

This Philadelphia neighborhood is said to have the largest open-air heroin market on the East Coast, with many neighbors migrating to the area for heroin and other opioids. 

With such a high concentration of drugs in Kensington, many state and local officials have focused on the neighborhood in an attempt to address Philadelphia's problem.

    6. Dominicans and puerto ricans get their drugs from mexicans.
      I remember years back i read an article where a mexican cartel was killing some dominicans in the east coast over drugs. Most likely dominicans tried to get slick and take some kilos.
      Just like the flores twins killed "kato" the well known puerto rican latin king. They say he was slacking on paying the twins for abunch of kilos he owed them.
      But who knows, theres onother story how one of the twins just wanted kato's girl so he had him killed.

    1. No, YouTube videos are not the documentary. There is an actual documentary that follows the new Philly District Attorneys office around for a full year the focus being on crime and quality of life in that city.

  7. I honestly don’t think society should ever legalize drugs. The last thing the world needs is more zombies roaming the streets as unproductive members of society.

    1. There are zombies in Philly already lol.

    2. Hey Sol how about stop sharing your stupid fucking opinions that are extremely easy to verify as nonsense with basic research and logic. If you actually wanted there to be less junkie zombies on the street then you would support legalization. Quit being fucking stupid.

      If you think legalization will lead to more users you’ve already lost the argument and it’s a big indication that you’re just a straight up illogical person who doesn’t even realize how this shit works. Your statements have been extra ridiulous this past month. Drop the idealism and start being pragmatic for once.

    3. @1:40 you can go fuck yourself. You and every bitch face hater that thinks you’re going to run your mouth with me. Save your clown comments for your ignorant mom motherfucker.

      Delete
    4. 1:40 it's very simple, you dont
      like staff opinions, then don't come on the website. Everyone vis intiltled to thier comment. I very much respect Sol's viewpoints, sensitive people like you, should not be in here.
      The kids YouTube channel is two doors down.

    5. @1:40 what the hell is your problem. Just because he said not to legalize drugs, you go ape on him.
      Could this be Whitey E Coyote of his medicine again?

    6. @1:59 lol who said you could talk?

      Delete
    7. to be fair Sol your opinion on legalization is different to many others regarding users. I can’t say it’s wrong/ right but i’m not sure either answer is as clear cut as you make it seem. But everyone is entitled to their opinion.

      Delete
    8. Ur bigger than that Sol. Don't pay any mind nor wasted keyboards on silliness.
      Opinions vary with likes & dislikes.

      Delete
    9. @3:41 I will if Sol fucking grows up lol. I’m asking so little. And most of my responses aren’t even appearing so I don’t even care to argue with people who feel the need to censor counter arguments.

      Delete
    10. 4:23 you can't figure out why, most of your comments are not appearing, you're really out of touch. Instead of commenting about the article, your bashing and calling people names. Once again you don't like the site, go to another one. Have a great day.

      Delete
    11. Chole I hate to say this but you are right, legalizing drugs will just create more zombies.
      What is needed is punishment for pushers and laws for their customers to sue them like they can sue big pharma and mandatory therapy for addicts.

  8. Anybody know Which cartel pushes the most weight into Philly? I'm guessing Sinaloa.

  13. Sol, thanks for stating your opinion. I like hearing other people's input, especially anything having to do with Sol's input...there is a dirty double entendre there.
    For all...
    I may not agree with what you have to say
    But, I will always fight for your right to say it

    1. Miss H Sol is ok in my book, he seems to keep churning articles, from Spanish to English, there was a time MX and Sol would compete for articles.
      Nevertheless for those that disposed Sol, your welcome to go directly to the new outlet in Mexico, and practice your Spanish reading.

    2. Chole, siempre la cagas con tus opiniones, pero aqui le atinastes en el mero yoyo, legalize las drogas es no good, legalizing lawsuits against drug hookers and pushers is what is needed, imagine their victims getting damages???

  16. It's truely unreal in Kensington!
    People making youtube videos and making money off their misery isn't a good thing.
    It's mostly puerto ricans but their are dominican and colombians Plus many black dudes and plenty of white dudes too! It's literally hell on earth!
    The city has allowed this to happen! They want to put an injection site up there!
    The entire area runs on drug game.
    So it's not easily replaceable.
    I mean everything! Blocks making $60k a day! Making $21 million a year!
    All the halfway houses are tied into the politicians in the area.
    Many been convicted of all kinds of crime.
    Unreal!
