The security guard sat in a chair by a desk in an office at Franklin Mills mall, despondent and bleeding from the head. "Is he dead?" asked the guard, 50-year-old William Haag, when a Philadelphia police officer entered the office. "Is he dead?" It was not yet dawn on Feb. 5, a clear, bitterly cold morning. A short distance from the office, the Franklin Mills security vehicle that Haag had been driving sat 35 feet down an embankment on the mall's fringe, battered and empty.

Joseph E. Hill Jr., 29, a 6-foot-6 security guard who said he "lost it" when he discovered that a toddler he was baby-sitting had soiled his pants, blinked back tears yesterday when a Common Pleas Court judge sentenced him to seven to 20 years in prison for fatally beating 23-month-old Lamar Mitchell in July 1993. Defense attorneys had asked for a sentence of less than three years, arguing that Hill was a hard-working, "kind, considerate and gentle person" with only one other brush with the law. But Common Pleas Court Judge James J. Fitzgerald 3d said that, in this case, "the court must balance between punishment and rehabilitation.

The woman testified yesterday at a Municipal Court trial for John McCabe, 53, accused of impersonating an officer and harassment, that the man who stopped her...

The shoplifter took more than his loot when he made his getaway from the Center City Strawbridge & Clothier store on March 9. He drove off with a store security guard, according to the district attorney's office. The guard, Aaron Rice, was so determined to catch the thief outside of the 8th and Market streets store that he grabbed the roof of the guy's car and held on until the auto hit a taxi about a block away. Rice was not seriously injured. During Alonzo Wallace's drive for freedom, he drove the car into Police Officer John Hughes, injuring the officer's leg. Common Pleas Judge James Murray Lynn recounted the offense while sentencing Wallace, 24, of 25th Street near Wolf, to six to 12 years in prison.

A security guard at a U.S. Navy research facility in Montgomery County was discovered missing from his post Thursday night, and authorities said they believed that the man had drowned in a water-filled quarry. Mary Ann Brett, a public information specialist at the Naval Air Development Center in Warminster, identified the missing guard as Samuel Neely, 64, of the 7500 block of Woodstock Street, Philadelphia. Detectives from the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office said that there was no indication of foul play and that Neely apparently had drowned accidentally in the 65-foot-deep Oreland Quarry on Walnut Avenue in Springfield Township.

Black lives matter, no doubt. But what will often make a crucial difference in those black lives are good jobs. "Anytime there is economic insecurity, you see racial tensions like we have now," Derrick Johnson, president for the Mississippi State Conference for the NAACP, told about 75 workers, labor leaders and activists gathered at City Hall on Monday. Monday's conference, sponsored by two of the nation's largest labor unions, follows six days of local protests over fatal shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana.

The Chester County Coroner's Office has reopened the case of a 20-year-old Navy sailor from Phoenixville to determine whether a violent encounter with police at a rock concert in Camden — or drugs — killed him. Brett Katzenmoyer died five days after his 2007 arrest had left him with a concussion and broken nose. Conflicting accounts surround the incident. A security guard at a hospital where Katzenmoyer was taken said one police officer repeatedly punched Katzenmoyer, drawing blood.

Now, as the under secretary of the United States Army - which is that military branch's second-highest civilian position - the Northeast Philadelphia native has the "awesome responsibility" of not only helping the country's soldiers to survive but to thrive.

THE OFFICIAL tribute to Ed Snider before Monday night's Flyers-Caps first-round playoff series Game 3 was brief and understated, qualities that were rarely ascribed to the man himself. As the scenes from years gone by flickered past on the center-ice scoreboard, it was unsettling to reflect on how many of the people pictured along with the late Flyers owner also are alive only in memory now: Pat Quinn. Gene Hart. Joe Scott. Keith Allen. Gene's daughter Lauren Hart, sporting a "Snider 67" jersey that connoted the year the team was founded, did the God Bless America duet with Kate Smith, and the team wearing the "EMS" patches came out with more jump than it had shown in losing the first two games of the series, in Washington.

You know why everyone remembers and restages Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House ? Because Ibsen provided a concrete, if alarmingly immoral (at the time) answer to a problem of social injustice. The failure to do the same shows why Theatre Horizon's compelling production of Kenneth Lonergan's innocuous drama Lobby Hero will fade into obscurity. Lonergan's play depicts the coincidental interactions of two security guards and two police officers. Mixed motives, semi-legal activities, and codes of loyalty collide when black security captain William (Akeem Davis)
