Philadelphia’s District Attorney Larry Krasner, bolstered by hefty support from George Soros-funded PACs, has once again raised eyebrows by declining to press charges against a pro-Palestinian protester accused of assaulting a police officer, as reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Krasner, who has been the recipient of approximately $2 million in financial backing from Soros-affiliated sources during his election campaigns, opted not to pursue legal action against four protesters arrested by University of Pennsylvania police. These individuals were allegedly attempting to occupy a campus building. Despite the allegations of assault on a law enforcement officer, Krasner asserted that the evidence provided by the police did not meet the threshold for filing charges. He further stated a readiness to reconsider his decision should additional evidence be furnished.


In his defense, Krasner contended that the police failed to furnish “crucial video evidence and other forms of corroboration,” thereby complicating the assessment of the alleged assault. He notably highlighted the absence of any reported injuries to the officer, stressing the lack of medical treatment provided.

While Krasner did pursue misdemeanor charges for resisting arrest and defiant trespass against three of the protesters, his decision not to prosecute for the alleged assault has drawn criticism, especially in light of escalating crime rates under his watch. Philadelphia has witnessed a disturbing surge in homicides during Krasner’s tenure, with over 500 murders recorded annually in both 2021 and 2022, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

This move follows a pattern observed in other jurisdictions with Soros-backed district attorneys. José Garza, the Soros-supported DA of Travis County, Texas, similarly opted against charging pro-Palestinian protesters apprehended at the University of Texas Austin’s campus in April.

As communities grapple with mounting crime rates, questions surrounding the efficacy of lenient prosecutorial policies championed by Soros-funded district attorneys continue to loom large. Critics argue that such approaches risk emboldening criminal behavior and undermine public safety, exacerbating already dire circumstances in cities grappling with soaring violence.
