"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Before we get to the latest news from Pennsylvania, I’d like to begin by congratulating Dana Pico for his success in spotlighting the dangerous lunacy of District Attorney Larry Krasner, who has turned loose so many criminals that “Killadelphia” has well and truly earned its infamy. There are more dangerous cities in America — St. Louis, for example — but none of them are as big as Philadelphia, America’s fourth-largest city, so that when the homicide rate goes up there (and it’s increased 78% since Krasner took office), it’s kind of difficult to ignore the death toll. Of course, the national media have tried to ignore the violence in “Killadelphia,” but Dana kept hammering away and now the floodgates have opened, so that Krasner felt compelled to hold a press conference Friday on the steps of the state capitol where he says Pennsylvania’s GOP-controlled legislature is getting ready to impeach him:

The Pennsylvania House committee looking to impeach Democratic Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner canceled a hearing with the city’s top prosecutor after he requested a public forum.
Krasner still showed up at the state Capitol on Friday morning, condemning the select committee’s investigation and telling reporters that he expects the Republican-controlled chamber will start the impeachment process as early as next week. . . .
Krasner said the committee has no legal grounds for impeachment. Instead, he accused the committee of targeting him for his ideas and policies during a “super-heated election cycle” and attempting to blame large and diverse cities as being “lawless.”
“What we see here is the same old playbook, which is about coded and racist messaging,” Krasner said. “It’s about blaming the biggest city in Pennsylvania with the most diverse population for having the same national struggle that we have with gun violence everywhere.”

Well, the city may be “diverse,” but there is a decidedly monochromatic aspect to the daily bloodshed in “Killadelphia,” where more than 80% of the murders are black criminals shooting black victims. There were an all-time record 562 murders in Philadelphia last year, which means that roughly 450 black people were killed, but according to Krasner, the Republicans who want to end the city’s bloodbath are “racist.”

Whereas the Democrat D.A. who keeps letting criminals out of jail, well, he’s anti-racist, you see. Such is the contorted logic of Larry Krasner’s “social justice” agenda. The results have been disastrous.

Republicans are blasting Pennsylvania’s Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman because a man — exonerated of a murder conviction and released from prison through Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s Conviction Integrity Unit (CIU), which Fetterman supports — was allegedly involved in another murder in September.
On Thursday, Fox 29 Philadelphia reported that Jahmir Harris, 32, who was released from prison last year, is wanted for his alleged role in the murder of 50-year-old Charles Gossett in September.
“Prosecutors say Harris was identified by security footage as the driver of a vehicle that two gunman exited before shooting 50-year-old Charles Gossett in the back of the head around 2 a.m.,” Fox 29’s Steve Keeley and Kelly Rule reported. . . .
Harris was convicted of the December 2012 murder of Louis Porter, who was shot in the head in front of his own five-year-old son. He was sentenced to life without parole in 2015 but was exonerated and released through Krasner’s CIU last year, which Fetterman lauded earlier this week . . .

Do you think maybe this “exoneration” was a mistake? Like, maybe Harris actually did commit the murder for which a jury convicted him?

Nor is the case of Jahmir Harris an isolated incident. Over and over again, the criminals charged with murder in Philadelphia turn out to have been let loose in accordance with Krasner’s “social justice” agenda.

Say hello to Yaaseen Bivins, 21, who was convicted in August “of plowing his car into a pregnant woman and killing her unborn baby while drag racing,” but set free on bail while awaiting sentencing. Then in September, according to police, Bivins “shot five teens outside Roxborough High School.” One of the teenagers died: “Homicide Capt. Jason Smith said the teen who was killed — Nicolas Elizalde, 14, of Havertown, Delaware County — appeared to be ‘a totally innocent victim,’ fatally struck in the chest during the hail of gunfire.”

Krasner’s reaction? “Obviously, with hindsight, it is a truly awful situation.” Oh, as if you needed hindsight to realize that turning loose violent criminals is a dangerous idea.

But if you call attention to such horrible incidents, and think that the anti-police/pro-criminal District Attorney should be held accountable for the results of his policy, that means you must be a “racist” Republican!
