Soros-Backed Philly DA Cut Plea Deals for Violent Clients of His Campaign Donors

Philadelphia district attorney Larry Krasner went easy on two cop-murdering criminals who were represented by criminal defense lawyers who donated to Krasner’s 2017 campaign, The Washington Free Beacon reported yesterday.

The Philadelphia DA teamed up with criminal defense lawyers Michael Coard and Daniel Stevenson, who donated to his campaign, to secure lighter sentences for their clients, cop-killers Carlton Hipps and Ramone Williams.

In 2017 Krasner ran on a platform of suing cops as a civil rights attorney. Billionaire progressive George Soros donated 1.7 million to Krasner’s campaign.

Coard and Stevenson also contributed $2,700 each to Krasner’s 2017 campaign, according to the Free Beacon.

Krasner and other Soros-backed DAs have a history of cutting soft deals with violent criminals and aiding illegal immigrants

Krasner has made a number of contentious decisions as DA, nearly always siding with criminals against law enforcement.

Five months into his term, he cut a plea deal with Hipps and Williams, both of whom fatally shot Sgt. Robert Wilson III at a GameStop in Philadelphia.

Sgt. Wilson was trying to protect civilians while exchanging fire with the criminals. The exchange was caught on video

Nevertheless, Krasner worked with two donors and criminal defense lawyers, Coard and Stevenson, to ensure that Hipps and Williams would avoid the death penalty. 

Coard has called police departments “modern versions of colonial-era slave patrols.”

Krasner is just one of many Soros-funded DAs across the country who have campaigned on anti-law enforcement platforms. Krasner’s crime-favoring policies have been accentuated in our time of Black Lives Matter rioting and looting.

Local law enforcement officials strongly oppose Krasner’s permissive and progressive agenda.

Krasner’s policies led to a large spike in violent crime, even before the Black Lives Matter riots. 

Philadelphia’s most violent year in three decades came in 2020. As a result, Krasner now faces a challenging reelection campaign.

“It’s been a complete train wreck since [Krasner] has been in office,” Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police president John McNesby said. “His failed social experiment has driven crime up, driven murders up. On the street, the criminals know that there are no repercussions. They call him ‘Let ‘Em Out Larry’—it’s a joke.”

Krasner’s campaign did not respond to a request from the Free Beacon for comment.
