Trump: Longer sentences for street crime needed

United States President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday, commenting on the Philadelphia shooter, that sentences for street crime need to be longer in the US.

Trump wrote: "The Philadelphia shooter should never have been allowed to be on the streets. He had a long and very dangerous criminal record. Looked like he was having a good time after his capture, and after wounding so many police. Long sentence - must get much tougher on street crime!"

Earlier, at least six police officers were shot in a standoff after attempting to serve an arrest warrant.
