‘This Is Hatred, This Is Foul’: Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner, Teachers’ Union Denounce Legislation Targeting LGBTQ Youth

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner and the teachers’ union condemned bills in Harrisburg that would affect the LGTBQ+ community. Two passed the Pennsylvania Senate on Wednesday. One would restrict what Republicans call “sexually explicit content.” Another restricts instruction about sexual orientation and gender identity in schools. Krasner called the bills “despicable.” “We hope and expect that they will be vetoed because this is hatred, this is foul,” Krasner said. “People are already hurt. They are already hurt because they have been singled out, they have been pointed out. They have been told they are not good enough and none of that is true.” The district attorney said the Pennsylvania legislature should concentrate on the gun violence epidemic.

Pennsylvania Road Rage Suspect Killed Man for Driving Too Slow: Cops

A man was shot dead in his car by a raging driver who thought the victim was driving too slowly, police said. King Hua, 54, was shot while stopped at a red light in Springfield Township near Philadelphia at around 8.40 a.m. on Wednesday. “A man lost his life today over traveling in his car too slow in rush-hour traffic,” Springfield Township Police Chief Joseph Daly told reporters at a news conference. “It’s just not acceptable.” Witnesses described seeing a dark SUV use the shoulder to pull ahead of Hua’s car before a male passenger got out of the vehicle and fired two rounds into Hua’s windshield and fled the scene, Daly added. Hua’s wife was also in the car at the time of the murder. Around 10 miles away on Tuesday night, a 21-year-old woman was shot and killed in a Philly bar over an argument about whose turn it was to use a pool table.

In Philadelphia, and across U.S., police say "crushing volume" of killings outruns their ability to close cases

Just before dawn on a recent Thursday, a SWAT team and detectives from Philadelphia's homicide unit quietly snaked through the streets of the city's Mayfair neighborhood. The overworked detectives were closing in on a possible murder suspect in the death of an immigrant Uber driver. Philadelphia saw 562 homicides in 2021 — more than ever before — and nearly half have gone unsolved. In this city, and across the country, the odds of getting away with murder are essentially a coin flip, the low point in a dramatic decline from the 1950s, when about 90% of murders led to arrests, according to FBI data analyzed by CBS News and an independent group, the Murder Accountability Project.
