PHILADELPHIA -- Fans in this city waited 25 years for a championship to return to town, and they wasted little time taking to the streets to celebrate.
"There were, in proportion, a very small number of people who engaged in inappropriate activity," Nutter said. "That was not a celebration. That, in many instances, was about destruction. There is a big difference between the two." Nutter added that some police officers had been assaulted during the celebration, and encouraged anyone with photos of individuals engaged in destructive activities to come forward. "We will do everything we can to protect our citizens, protect property and make sure our police officers are safe," Nutter said.
