The widow of a murdered Philadelphia police officer had a message for liberal mega-donor George Soros on Thursday after defending far-left prosecutors and their policies, including that of prosecutor Larry Krasner, whom she blames for her husband’s murder.

Sergeant James O’Connor, a 23-year veteran of the Corps, was killed while executing an arrest warrant on March 13, 2020. Prosecutors in the case described the alleged killers as dangerous drug dealers with extensive criminal records.

O’Connor’s widow, Terri, told UKTN News on Thursday that she believes her husband would still be alive without the far-left bail policy of controversial DA Krasner, which allowed these gunmen to take to the streets after multiple arrests.

“They had long criminal records for guns, shootings, murders. I could go on and on about it,” she said in “America Reports.” “They were repeatedly released from prison because of our prosecutor and his lenient policy. If those men were locked up and held where they were supposed to be, my husband would still be here today.”

Terri joins other Philadelphia victims spiral crime crisis who harshly criticized Krasner’s far-left policies and called for his ouster. In June, a group of Pennsylvania state representatives launched impeachment proceedings against the Liberal DA for dereliction of duty.

“We have a prosecutor who won’t prosecute people who steal from stores if it’s under $1,000 and close small businesses because people can just walk in, take what they want and they know nothing will happen to them,” she said. .

Terri shared her story in response to an op-ed this week published by the Wall Street Journal, in which liberal billionaire Soros praised the work of progressive prosecutors and rejected the idea that their policies were responsible for crime spikes nationwide.

But Terri said her grief and that of so many others like her is proof that the current system “isn’t working.”

“It doesn’t work. Who thinks this system of giving people a second, third, fourth chance works? Our city isn’t safe. It hasn’t been safe for quite some time,” she said. “Younger victims are being shot and killed every day. It’s because they are released over and over and every time it happens you see their arrest records. It’s disgusting how many criminal cases they have. Nothing is being done about it. They are not being kept.” behind bars where they deserve to be.”

State charges have been filed against the men who took O’Connor’s life, along with federal charges, including the death penalty.

Terri said federal intervention in the case gave her more hope that the men who killed her husband will be brought to justice.

“[As far as] Taking this job off the hands of our prosecutor… we’ve already seen him go behind people’s backs and make deals without telling anyone. I’d be sure someone would already be on the street,” she said, adding, “I’m very thankful that they’re all locked up in federal prison right now.”
