Civil rights lawyer Larry Krasner is the target of a temper tantrum by Philadelphia Police who are angry voters ignored fear-mongering from the police union and elected Krasner in a landslide victory, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

About 300 members of the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 5, unanimously endorsed Republican nominee Beth Grossman. The police union also donated $12,500 and issued an October letter accusing Krasner of “an open hostility against police and law enforcement in general.”

Despite the support of FOP, Grossman received only 25 percent of the vote. With the support of Black Lives Matter, Krasner received 75 percent of the vote.

Philadelphia Inquirer feature writer Samantha Melamed exposed police anger at citizens rejecting their message and electing Krasner.

“He doesn’t give me my arrest powers so [I] don’t care. No blood on my hands when he lets the sh*tbags out,” Officer Marc Marchetti reportedly posted on Facebook.

“Hitler could run for DA or Mayor on the Democratic ticket and win,” another commenter responded.

“He’s got that look on his face you just wanna wipe off with a b*tch slap,” Officer Steve Mancuso posted. The Inquirer noted, “Mancuso has been accused of such rough handling, in a ‘violent takedown’ of an Eagles fan during a game; the case was settled out of court.”

Krasner has shrugged off the post-election attacks and is focusing on his transition before taking over the office of 300 attorneys and a budget of over $50 million.

On the website Krasner Transition, the civil right’s attorney is requesting resumes. During his election night victory speech, Krasner also request applications.

“The coming year will bring a shift in priorities. The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office will transition from a culture of seeking victory for prosecutors to a culture of seeking justice for all,” the transition explained. “The next District Attorney looks forward to working with the many current staff members who are also dedicated to this vision, and with the best and brightest talent drawn from local and national pools.”

Senate Dems blast ‘corrupt’ nomination of Amy Coney Barrett: ‘This entire process is illegitimate’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the United States Supreme Court -- and Democrats were livid.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) linked the nomination to the Affordable Care Act and the COVID-19 pandemic.

"A vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions in the middle of a pandemic," Schumer wrote. "Democrats are fighting for Americans' health care."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, ripped the nomination for coming so close to the election.

Amy Coney Barrett: Religious conservative US Supreme Court pick

Published

on

Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who was nominated Saturday to the US Supreme Court, is a darling of conservatives for her religious views but detractors warn her confirmation would shift the nation's top court firmly to the right.

A practising Catholic and the mother of seven children, including two adopted from Haiti and a young son with Down's Syndrome, Barrett is personally opposed to abortion, one of the key issues dominating the cultural divide in the United States.

As a federal appeals court judge since 2017, she has taken positions backing gun rights and against migrants, women seeking abortions and former president Barack Obama's signature healthcare reform that Republicans have been trying to dismantle for years.

The website where the T-shirts are sold says the money will go to the "Supreme Court Defense Fund."

"Democrats will do ANYTHING to stop President Trump and Senate Republicans from filling the Supreme Court vacancy," the website argues. "Protecting our Majority has never been more important. HELP!"
