Big Disappointment in Philadelphia
In a few spots, there are some encouraging signs that Americans are starting to come out of the mass hallucination that going soft on crime is somehow going to help social problems. Philadelphia, regrettably, is not there yet. In yesterday’s primary, Democratic voters renominated pro-criminal District Attorney Larry Krasner by a 2-to-1 margin over pro-law-enforcement challenger Carlos Vega.
The Democratic primary is the election for all practical purposes. The Republican candidate got only 1/15th as many votes as the two Democrats.
