Philly cops threaten to ‘b*tch slap’ newly elected DA Larry Krasner who was backed by Black Lives Matter

Published

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.”

Black Georgia lawmaker accuses white man of demanding she ‘go back where she came from’ in supermarket diatribe

On Friday evening, Erica Thomas, and African-American Democratic lawmaker in the Georgia House of Representatives, was shopping at a Publix supermarket in Mableton when a white customer came up to her and shouted at her, telling her to "go back where you came from" — words echoing President Donald Trump's recent racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color.

Thomas' crime? She had too many items for the express checkout line.

Today I was verbally assaulted in the grocery store by a white man who told me I was a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from bc I had to many items in the express lane. My husband wasn’t there to defend me because he is on Active Duty serving the country I came from USA!

Twitter users were both baffled and amused on Saturday morning after Donald Trump tweeted that he would "personally vouch" for the bail needed to release American rapper A$AP Rocky from a Swedish jail.

After receiving a phone call from celebrity Kim Kardashian about the plight of the hip-hop star overseas, the president -- in the middle of a racism scandal himself -- appears to have taken up the cause in an effort to calm racism charges.

Not everyone on Twitter was buying it.

See below:

Just had a very good call with @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven who assured me that American citizen A$AP Rocky will be treated fairly. Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative....

It is amazing how similar America in 2019 is to America in the 1920’s, a decade that began almost a hundred years ago. It is as if America is reliving its own history, trapped in a prison of deja vu, purposely not wanting to remember the disaster that unfolded as the 1920s ended.

The parallels are striking, the anti-immigration frenzy, race-baiting, trade wars, over-heated stock markets, corruption, and technological changes that produced hip urban centers contrasting with rural alienation and bitterness. Like today, the 1920s was a period of spectacular wealth and an ever-increasing income gap.
