Despite High Rate Of Homicides, Philadelphia DA Says There Is No Significant Increase In Crime

Larry Krasner, the Soros-backed Philadelphia District Attorney, wants everyone in the city to know that he’s in charge. Sure, homicides are at an all-time high, but everything else in Philadelphia is just fine. “We don’t have a lawlessness issue. There hasn’t been a significant increase in crime,” he remarked.

Moreover, Krasner told his assistant district attorneys that they needed to modify their work. They were directed not to charge four types of felonies and to provide plea deals below the state’s requirements. For positive marijuana tests or if the parolee is found with marijuana, request shorter probation and parole durations and no parole breach.

Former Democratic Mayor Michael Nutter questioned District Attorney Larry Krasner’s claim that there has been no increase in violent crime in Philadelphia. “In our City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection, 521 persons, souls, spirits have been destroyed, erased, slaughtered,” Nutter says. He has to question what sort of twisted-up white wokeness Krasner is living in to be so unconcerned with human lives lost, many of them Black and brown, while advancing his national reputation.

To fulfill the definition of a “crisis,” how many more Black and Brown individuals, as well as others, would have to be killed in our streets daily? How many more children and teenagers must die in unprecedented numbers to pique your interest and be labeled a “crisis”? After reading it, one can envision Krasner: All of this is for the benefit of black people! We, as enlightened white people, must assist black people.

Larry Krasner, the police chief of Philadelphia, should resign if he has the courage or guts to carry out his duty. He doesn’t care about reforming the police. He worries about “social justice.” And, if a few hundred or thousands of innocent people have to die in the pursuit of that sacred cause, so be it.
