Yesterday, it was announced that Philadelphia Police had finally arrested two men responsible for hijacking a car, sexually assaulting the car’s driver, and then driving into a crowd of people, killing three children. In the midst of this announcement, DA Seth Williams announced that Sir Charles himself has offered to pay the funeral expenses for the three children who died.
Williams said, “I received a telephone call from Sixers legend Charles Barkley. Like most Philadelphians, many Americans and people across the world, he wanted me to know that he wanted to pay for the funeral for these three children and I put him in touch with the family so he can do that.”
Charles, whenever he ends up calling into local sports radio shows, always mentions how much he loves Philadelphia, but this is just a whole different level. It’s heartwarming to see someone reach out like this and put the money they’ve earned to good use. Nice work, Charles.
