On the heels of sharp criticism from U.S. Attorney William McSwain, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner sits down with Solomon Jones on Praise 107.9. In a wide ranging interview, Krasner discusses the death penalty, cash bail, and other criminal justice issues. Krasner also discusses his support for Safe Injection Sites. At Safe Injection Sites, those addicted to heroin and other opioids can inject illegal drugs under the supervision of medical personnel. Such sites are illegal under state and federal law. In an effort to prevent overdoses, Philadelphia’s law enforcement community does not plan to arrest or prosecute those participating in such sites.
