Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday showed how billionaire George Soros effectively bought a bunch of District Attorney seats for far-left Democrats who are outright refusing to prosecute criminals for serious crimes.

Rush transcript via Fox News:

CARLSON: One of the left’s big causes in the past several years has been so-called Criminal Justice Reform. What does that mean exactly? It sounds like something you’d be for.

Over the past few years, left-wing billionaire George Soros has spent about $13.4 million on District Attorney races across the country in 17 states. He spent that money because it’s an effective use of money.

Without passing a single law, without the democratic process really working itself out, a single DA can completely remake or unmake a city’s Criminal Justice System. It’s happened across the country.

One of the Soro’s biggest wins in recent years was the election of Larry Krasner as the District Attorney in Philadelphia. So we went to Philadelphia to investigate the effect of crashers win on the city and this is what we found.

CARLSON (voice over): This is the scene outside of the Philadelphia Cycle Center last winter. In broad daylight, 10 kids congregate outside of the store, and they climb up the back wall, smash the windows, dive into the building and come out with a $10,000.00 dirt bike.

QUESTION: And how much time do they get for that?

VINCE SANGINITI, PHILADELPHIA CYCLE CENTER OWNER: Nothing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

CARLSON (voice over): The victim, Vince Sanginiti lost thousands of dollars in stolen merchandise and even more in damage to his store. The burglar who rode off with the dirt bike was arrested, but Sanginiti didn’t get justice.

Prosecutors went soft on the burglar. He didn’t go to prison.

SANGINITI: Big burglaries are usually sad to say more common than not any more. Big burglaries are running about twice a month.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

CARLSON (voice over): That’s life in Philadelphia under the city’s new prosecutor, Larry Krasner. Krasner is a left-wing activist who uses his position to undermine the existing legal system.

BILL MCSWAIN, U.S. ATTORNEY FOR EASTERN DISTRICT PHILADELPHIA: He views the system as corrupt and racist. And so his revenge on the system is that he is going to excuse lawlessness of all types.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

CARLSON (voice over): Soon after taking office, Krasner issued a memo to his staff urging them not to enforce certain drug or prostitution laws and to defer gun cases. Even petty theft has almost been decriminalized.

The consequences of all of these, well, see for yourself. This footage of Philadelphia’s Kensington neighborhood shows an open air heroin market filled with drug dealers and addicts shooting up in public. The sidewalks are covered in trash.
