Philly says "Never mind" to 19,400 fugitives
Not 19 bad guys, or 1900,
have been given a pass by the Philadelphia courts.
With a staggering backlog of 47,000 fugitive warrants
on the books, the city decided that the best way
to lighten the load, was to write nearly half of them off.
The message apparently is
"Your crime wasn't that bad",
so go have a good life.
And you victims out there, all 19,000 of you,
just deal with it, ok?
