One Response to Krasner Touts Homicide Convictions

  1. What about violent crime in general? And how many of the folks he let out of prison have reoffended? Also, has the appearance rate at hearings dropped precipitously now that there is no cash bail requirement? Check back later.

    Most importantly, let’s make sure to maintain our consent decree with the ACLU wherein we agree to make sure the demographics of police stops in North, West and Southwest Philly neatly match those of the US as a whole because it’s racist otherwise.

    LMFAO, our first Marxist DA, brought to you with $2 million of George Soros’ money.
