The anti-police chants shouted by supporters of Democratic District Attorney nominee Larry Krasner at his victory rally were despicable. There’s no place — no excuse — in a civilized society for that kind of hate speech.
I sincerely hope Mr. Krasner admonishes his supporters and urges them not to spew such hate in the future. Furthermore, our police officers aren’t the enemy, they’re our protectors and are deserving of our respect, not our contempt.
