Pennsylvania Republican Seeks to Impeach Philadelphia District Attorney

Pennsylvania Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman wants to impeach Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner.  

 

Background: Like a number of liberal cities, Philadelphia has been experiencing an uptick in violent crime. Pennsylvania Republicans have blamed the spike in crime on relaxed policing policies that favor criminals.  

 

Philadelphia reached 550 homicides by the end of 2021.  

 

What Happened: Corman is requesting Republicans in the state House of Representatives begin impeachment proceedings against DA Krasner.  

 

“The recent spike in violent crime is a direct result of DA Krasner’s failed policies and his refusal to perform the duties of his office to hold criminals accountable for the crimes that they commit,” Corman wrote in the letter addressed to House Speaker Bryan Cutler, Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rob Kauffman.  

 

“His decision to allow more and more criminals to walk free through plea deals and dismissed charges has created an environment in which Philadelphians are no longer safe in their own homes and communities,” Corman said  

 

What Democrats Say: DA Krasner previously tried to claim Philadelphia is not experiencing a “crisis of crime.”  

 

“We don’t have a crisis of crime — we don’t have a crisis of violence.”  

 

What Republicans Say: Republicans have accused DA Krasner of refusing to prosecute criminals.

Who gets to decide who is living up to their oath of office?
Should President Trump order the House to form a select committee?

“We The People” decide. That DA was installed using Soros’ money and PA citizens didn’t bother to look “under the hood” and bought his lies. Now they have to deal with this “lemon”

The USA had a committee of UN-American activitees which was desolved by the DEMORATS in the late 50’s and as a result the Communist are have now taken over the DEMORATIC party.

I wonder how many of the victims of these kinds of district attorneys were armed when victimized. They need to read the news. During ’21, tens of millions of ordinary citizens armed themselves. They didn’t do it because the bad old arms industry suggested it. They did it to feel a bit more secure. If it continues, law enforcement will be the least of the criminal world’s worry.

The majority of people who armed themselves are people of color.

You’re not just a racist jackhole, you’re a liar too. I’ve not heard any stats separating people of color as buyers of firearms. Maybe they should be the ones buying guns, since they are the victims of violence in nearly every DumbocRAT run city,like Chicago.

People in every state that’s allowing this to happen need to be supporting this kind of action.
Look what happened to that beautiful UCLA student working at the furniture store?
Just a couple of days ago, someone was knocked unconscious in Manhattan.
What’s wrong with the people voting for idiots who don’t want this behavior to be prosecuted?

I don’t understand why you are still in America? Move to China. They will be happy to let you come in. Because they are getting more and more requests to be removed from CCP membership.

It’s incredibly annoying to post on here with like minded people, and then have al the ass take over the discussion. Please ignore, don’t respond or even give him a thumbs down.
He’s just here to rock the boat.
The idiot needs to move to N Korea.
