Ralph Cipriano: Philly DA Larry Krasner, Look In The Mirror

Veteran reporter Ralph Cipriano (seen in the below photo) at takes issue with Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s responses to questions from an interview on Fox 29.

When it comes to the city's gun violence epidemic and record murder rate, District Attorney Larry Krasner blames poverty, unemployment, and failing schools.

He blames the courts for shutting down, the cops for not making narcotics arrests during the pandemic, and for having a low clearance rate for murder cases.

He blames society in general, by saying that gun violence is a national problem that's plaguing every big city in America. But the one thing Krasner never does, however, is blame himself. Nor does he ever blame the lenient policies of his progressive D.A.'s office that have created a revolving door for armed and dangerous drug dealers.

Last week, Krasner, who has refused to talk to Big Trial for more than a year, was deploying all of his customary evasive tactics during a 17-minute Fox 29 interview, where Krasner sparred with Good Day hosts Mike Jerrick and Alex Holley. For Krasner, it was a remarkable display of arrogance, dodging the question, and creating one's own version of reality.
