Philly DA Krasner Dismisses Crime Victims’ Concerns as ‘Political Theater’

When members of Congress try to take their show on the road, supposedly to “investigate” something, it really is a show. They’re not investigating anything. At most, they’re asking a few carefully selected people some questions, often on a public stage, and then holding the position they held from the start.

They’re public officials, not investigators. It’s mostly a chance to get out of Washington on the taxpayer’s dime.

But sometimes, they illustrate a serious problem, not through their own actions so much as someone they’re talking to tipping their hand.

Recently, this happened in Philadelphia, where members of the House Judiciary Committee traveled to supposedly try and get a handle on the violent crime issue.

That’s where things got interesting.

The problem, of course, is that Krasner stands accused of not doing his job.

He, like so many other Soros-backed district attorneys, has a history of not prosecuting people for any number of crimes, including violent ones, then complaining about how violent crime is getting ridiculous and pointing the finger elsewhere.

For example, Krasner has a long history of blaming guns and gun rights activists for Philadelphia’s problems, all while failing to prosecute people like the killers mentioned above. Now, he’s claiming that pointing out his failings is “stupid” and “political theater.”

Now, I’ll grant that there was some political theater involved. Congress taking its show on the road is always going to be political theater to some degree or another.

Yet the problem is that Krasner didn’t actually dispute the claims. He couldn’t. There’s no way he can claim that people with an arrest history as long as an anaconda without prosecution then killing someone isn’t somehow on him. 

So, he implies that stupidity is afoot and that he must combat it.

Well, there’s stupidity, to be sure, but it’s in the person of one Larry Krasner. Not only does he seem to think turning cell doors into revolving doors is a good idea, he thinks we’re too blind to notice when one of those put back out on the streets murders innocent people. He also is stupid enough to think he shouldn’t be held accountable for his failures.

Oh, he most definitely should be.
