    Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner: Stop overspending on prisons and put the money in schools instead.
    For the last three decades, Larry Krasner has seen America's criminal justice system take its toll on prisoners - all at exorbitant cost to taxpayers. "[I had] been in court for 30 years before I got silly and decided to run for DA," Krasner, the district attorney for Philadelphia, said in an interview.
