One. He is Our Revolution's politically endorsed candidate for Philadelphia District Attorney. He has been a civil rights lawyer fighting for thirty years! Two. He will bring police and the community together and stop illegal stop and frisk. He will end cash bail imprisonment and free wrongful convictions. "Ineffective, divisive police measures fail to make us safe. They also divide police and the neighborhoods they protect, increasing unnecessary conflict and making police work more dangerous. Larry will work with the police department to reform divisive law enforcement tactics while holding suspects and police officers equally accountable as the law requires. Larry will push for more proactive, intelligence-based policing that focuses on the 6% of criminals who commit 60% of our city’s serious crimes. Victims of crime, their families, our communities and all suspects all deserve transparency and fairness in determining the truth."
Three. He will end death sentences which cost states close to a million a person and are morally wrong. "Larry Krasner is the only candidate running for District Attorney who explicitly pledges to never seek the death penalty. He knows that capital punishment is expensive, ineffective, and racially biased. Since its reinstatement by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1976, it has cost Pennsylvania taxpayers over $1 billion, yet no one on Pennsylvania’s death row has been put to death involuntarily since 1962. Meanwhile six people on death row have been exonerated. Philadelphia is the only northeastern city in which a death sentence is possible. Exercising his discretion as District Attorney, Larry will never seek the death sentence."
Four. He will put an end to police misconduct"While most police officers are professionals who respect the rights of the public, abuses of authority are far too common. As many police commissioners have realized, outside pressure can improve both the culture and policies of local law enforcement. Obama’s Department of Justice provided that pressure through consent decrees and cooperative efforts with police. But Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has signaled his intent to abandon those efforts. As District Attorney, Larry will keep up the pressure for reform by rejecting cases that rely on abusive or discriminatory actions by the police, by prosecuting police when appropriate, and by making the case that good policing is more effective than the divisive law enforcement tactics encouraged by politicians like Trump and Sessions." Five. He will change the D. A. office "The culture of the Philadelphia DA’s Office must change. We will achieve real justice for victims and others caught up in the criminal justice system. For far too long the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has been driven by a win-at-any-cost culture that prioritizes high conviction rates and harsh sentencing over more effective approaches that are proven to reduce crime. As District Attorney, Larry Krasner will fundamentally change that culture, from a culture of seeking victory to a culture of seeking justice. Larry has a proven track record of fearlessly fighting for progressive reform of Philadelphia’s criminal justice system. He will never pursue a death sentence in any case. He will reject illegal use of stop-and-frisk, reform our broken cash bail system, and stop the abuse of civil asset forfeiture. While re-focusing the DA’s Office on prosecuting serious crimes, he will seek alternatives to incarceration — dramatically reducing the number of prisoners held, saving millions of tax dollars, and letting wounded communities begin to heal." Six. Larry is endorsed by National and local groups that are counting on him for real change, healing and justice! Let's back that up! https://krasnerforda.com/the-latest?category=Endorsements
Seven. Volunteer for Larry because he is a fighter for the little guy with a proven track record. Too many people in politics are sold out . We need justice. https://krasnerforda.com/voluntee
Eight. It may be hard to believe but lives and taxpayers money are being wasted on prosecuting cases with no evidence. Larry won't do that insane crap. "While other district attorney’s offices typically prosecute 80 to 85% of cases forwarded by the police, in Philadelphia the DA’s office prosecutes over 98% of them. It acts as an arm of the police rather than a guardian of the public trust in its own right. Not only does this clog the courts, delaying trials, but it contributes to Philadelphia’s high incarceration rate — the highest among major US cities. This over-prosecution results from a toxic culture that prizes prosecution over promoting justice and focuses on winning convictions at any cost, too often at the cost of justice itself. Larry Krasner will decline to prosecute cases forwarded by the police that lack support by sufficient and legally obtained evidence." Nine. Larry went to Stanford and could of just been a rich corporate lawyer. Instead he has given back by fighting for justice for thirty years. "While at Stanford, rather than focusing on corporate law, Larry worked for indigenous rights, homeless people, and the poor, in criminal matters. After graduating in 1987, he received several job offers from prosecutors’ offices around the country, but instead chose to return to Philadelphia to work for the Federal Public Defender’s Office."
