KYW In Depth: Coronavirus
Wednesday, July 8th
This is the second part of a series here on KYW In Depth taking a look at gun violence in Philadelphia during the coronavirus pandemic. Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner announced a new initiative last month that involved assistant district attorneys being placed in individual police districts or stations. It's based off of a model used in Chicago that resulted in a decrease in shootings and homicides. For this episode, District Attorney Krasner joins KYW In Depth to talk about the plan, how it should work, and why he thinks a community based approach is the answer to the gun violence crisis.
