The NFL draft last weekend on Philly’s Ben Franklin Parkway may have set a world record.
Even with a quarter of a million people rolling through, even with plenty of officially sponsored beverages flowing and even with the NFL’s dumb-o commissioner trying to incite a riot:
According to the Inky, there were exactly zero arrests last weekend during the NFL Draft. And the Philly police said there weren’t even any citations handed out, which is startling considering the size of the crowd.
Compared to other big crowds in Philly, it’s a record low. When Pope Francis came to town in 2015, there were three arrests, and the Democratic National Convention in 2016 included 106 citations.
During last year’s NFL draft in Chicago, 17 arrests were made, for people protesting and blocking traffic.
