Philadelphia D.A. Larry Krasner has released names of 29 police officers who are on a ‘Do Not Call’ list to be witnesses in court cases due to criminal activity and misconduct ranging from child pornography, sexual abuse, corruption. The police officer who arrested rapper Meek Mill is also on the list.
