Phila., PA. Police Search For Shooter Suspect Set Free By Krasner
It appears that Philadelphia, Pennsylvania District Attorney Larry Krasner may have done it, again.
The Philadelphia Police Department is presently searching for a shooting suspect, who they believe is the same man previously set free by Krasner.
Fox News is reporting that Jahmir Harris is believed to be connected to a recent shooting on September 5, 2022. The approximately 2:00 a.m. shooting on the 1700 block of North 56th Street, resulted in the death of Charles Gossett, due to a gunshot to the back of the head.
Harris was previously convicted for the killing of Louis Porter, in a Walgreens parking area on December 23, 2012, fatally shooting him.
Harris was serving a first-degree murder sentence in prison when Krasner stepped-in and freed Harris, with his Conviction Integrity Unit.
The Philadelphia District Attorney’s office told FOX 29 “that the convicted shooter's "constitutional rights had been violated at the time of his prosecution because information implicating another individual as the likely shooter had not been turned over to the defense council."
Philadelphia FOX 29 also reported that “Judge Rose Marie de Fino Nastasi criticized the decision to exonerate Harris at the time, saying … This court wonders how the commonwealth felt confident in releasing a murder suspect from prison when the commonwealth said one
page earlier that the criminal investigation in this matter was still ongoing,” according to the transcript obtained by FOX 29.
Krasner is under mounting criticism because of his weak approach in handling the most violent crimes. During Krasner’s time as District Attorney, violent crime is skyrocketing in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Police Department is asking for assistance in locating Harris and any information that you may have regarding this shooting.
They have confirmed that the suspect’s vehicle is a black,
two-door Honda Accord, model style is between the tears 2007-2015.
