Veteran reporter and author Ralph Cipriano (seen in the below photo) at BigTrial.net offers a piece on the scandal at the DA office, which has not received much news coverage here, with the notable exception of Ralph Cipriano’s blog.
(Which is why Philadelphia Weekly changing editorial direction to a conservative newspaper and offering an alternative voice in the city is so important. On a personal note, my Crime Beat column will appear next week in Philadelphia Weekly).
Ralph Cipriano’s post offers the U.S. Attorney’s comments on the DA scandal.
It's day two of the local news media blackout over the latest scandal in the Philly D.A.'s office, involving a gun violence counselor who shot and killed a male prostitute.
And who's trying to expose the ongoing cover up?
U.S. Attorney Bill McSwain went on Twitter today to rip D.A. Larry Krasner:
"Your Philly DA's office: where Krasner hires an employee who allegedly ends up shooting and killing a man. You can't even make this stuff up. The destruction that Krasner has wrought on that office is a tragedy."
McSwain subsequently went on Twitter again to rip The Philadelphia Inquirer, which, as usual, was sleeping through another news cycle involving possible bad publicity for their favorite progressive D.A.:
"So where's the @PhillyInquirer article on this? Everybody knows that the Inquirer bends over backwards to protect Krasner, but this is a little too obvious -- even for them."
