Philadelphia attempts to quell racial unrest

The city's Crisis Intervention network quietly lined up community leaders to "keep feelings cool" and provide accurate information as bands of youths continued hit-and-run attacks Tuesday on police patrolling a predominantly black area.Twelve policemen and two firemen were injured Monday night when 500 people surrounded a police station to protest the shooting death of a black teen-age stolen-car suspect by a white policeman.
