Man Who Sued Police 75 Times Could Become Philadelphia's Top Prosecutor

June 19, 2017  | 

Larry Krasner has sued the Philadelphia Police Department 75 times. He has promised not to seek the death penalty. He has even called law enforcement 'systemically racist.' Now he is poised to become the district attorney of Philadelphia, reports the New York Times.

Krasner, a veteran civil rights lawyer, defeated six opponents — all of them with more crime-fighting chops — in a Democratic primary last month, winning nearly 40% of the vote and becoming the unexpected favorite in this heavily Democratic city.
