As Philly DA Larry Krasner’s World Turns: On Pace For Record Death
The Philadelphia Inquirer has compiled a report, that is shining the spotlight and casting Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a very bad light.
The Philadelphia Inquirer confirmed that "nearly eight people on average were shot every day" during the window between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
In the report, The Inquirer confirmed that "Last year, more than 560 people were killed in homicides … the overwhelming majority by guns … and another 1,800 were wounded by bullets. It was the city's most violent year ever. ... This year's pace has been worse."
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania district attorney Larry Krasner is facing significant criticism from multiple directions.
There are a myriad of efforts afoot to try and impeach him, which may not be constitutional.
Krasner was also found in contempt by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, who voted to hold Krasner in contempt for his failure to cooperate with a legislative
committee investigating his potential impeachment.
Because of Krasner’s liberal philosophy of governance regarding his duties as prosecutor and the alarming results, a group called Select Committee on Restoring Law and Order has been formed.
This Committee was formed to investigate Krasner’s actions.
During 2022, more than 1400 people have been shot in Philadelphia. Hundreds of them have died. Philadelphia has more shootings than much larger cities such as New York City and Los Angeles, California.
Krasner has also been found in contempt for his failure to comply with subpoenas seeking his cooperation in the legislature’s investigation of him.
Krasner has unapologetically implemented the following philosophy of governance as District Attorney:
- End cash bail.
- Decriminalize low-level
- Highlight police and prosecutorial misconduct.
As reality has set in, along with the significant rise in violent crime and the record number of fatalities, Krasner is becoming a lightening rod.
Philadelphia is on pace to have its deadliest year in history, following a very violent summer, 2022.
