Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner forced 31 people out at the District Attorney’s office, prompting criticism from some and celebration from others.
In an exclusive interview with Praise 107.9 FM host Solomon Jones, Krasner explained his motivations. ““We did it because this is an office in need of culture change,” Krasner told Jones. “It is an office in need of reorganization. Some of the spots were eliminated and they’re not coming back, so the individuals in those spots, needless to say, have to be separated. It’s an office that’s been going the wrong direction for a while, but we’re trying to go the right direction now. And that means that we have to go that direction with team members who we think are going to work on the team. I’m the coach. I get to pick the team.”
