    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.

    A measure that would require developers to build more parking along with new housing got a major haircut in City Council on Wednesday. The mandatory parking minimum bill revised by the council's Rules Committee bears little resemblance to the far more significant reform proposed in Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell's original bill.
