A suspected murderer has been released after Philadelphia’s Soros-appointed district attorney dropped all charges against 17-year old Latif Williams. Williams is a career thug with a long list of violent offenses, most of which were dropped by D.A. Larry Krasner.
The suspect in the murder of a 21 year-old Temple University student was arrested on Aug. 14th and charged with eight crimes in connection with an armed carjacking, including aggravated assault, robbery, conspiracy and possession of an unlicensed gun.
On Aug. 20, less than a week after his arrest, Municipal Court Joffie Pittman lowered the bail for Williams to $200,000 unsecured, meaning the defendant had to post no money at all to stay out of jail. On Sept. 30th, only the second listing for the preliminary hearing in the case, Judge Martin Coleman granted the D.A.’s motion to withdraw all eight charges against Williams, and he was a free man.
Less than two months later, on Sunday Nov. 28th, Williams, according to the police, attempted to rob Samuel Collington, as he was unloading his mother’s SUV on the 2200 block of North Park Avenue in North Philadelphia. According to the cops, Williams shot Collington twice in the chest; the victim died about a half-hour later.
At the age of thirteen, Williams was arrested for robbing a Temple student. In 2019, he was arrested for selling drugs. In May, 2020, he was arrested for looting during the Saint George Floyd riots, In November, 2020, he was arrested for selling drugs again.
D.A. Larry Krasner dropped the charges in every single incident.
Williams murdered Samuel Collington in August, and this piece of garbage released this career thug with no charges. One of my coworkers said this the other day, and she’s right; we’re not on the same team anymore. The District Attorney’s Office is our enemy.
I continually tell people Philadelphia is the worst city in America, and people scoff. Philly doesn’t get national press because it’s locked between NYC and D.C., but believe me, this is the worst city in the United States.
