A district attorney funded by leftist billionaire George Soros has refused to file charges against a pro-Palestinian protester who violently assaulted a police officer

Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, who received $2 million in support from Soros-funded PACs during his 2017 and 2021 campaigns, declined to file charges against four pro-Palestinian protesters who assaulted police while trying to occupy a campus building.

According to Krasner, the police did not provide enough evidence to justify charges against the protesters, but they were willing to reconsider if law enforcement provided more evidence.

“Elements of the offenses were not made out, there was not probable cause, and it would be inequitable and unjust to treat certain people completely differently than the way Penn police were treating other people doing the exact same thing,” Krasner said, according to the outlet.

The Daily Caller reported: The officers also did not provide “crucial video evidence and other forms of corroboration that we would normally expect” regarding the alleged assault, Krasner said, according to the Inquirer. He also said that “every indication is there was no injury [to the officer], there was no medical treatment.”

The district attorney did file misdemeanor charges for resisting arrest and defiant trespass against three protesters, according to the Inquirer.

Nationals Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP) and Temple University Students for Justice in Palestine both posted about the protest on their social media accounts, with the latter saying that the occupied campus building “was liberated by our students and community members.”

NSJP members have distributed documents encouraging protesters to assault police and engage in other illegal activities.

José Garza, the Soros-funded district attorney of Texas’ Travis County, also declined to charge pro-Palestinian protesters arrested at the University of Texas Austin’s campus on April 24.

Krasner has presided over a spike in murders during his tenure as district attorney, with Philadelphia seeing over 500 murders in both 2021 and 2022, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Other Soros-funded district attorneys, such as those in California’s Alameda County, have also seen crime increase under their watch.

Krasner’s office and the University of Pennsylvania did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s requests for comment.
