Readers, even The Morning Call "newspaper" can't look (totally) the other way on this one ...
Attempted homicide charge withdrawn against Peaches; others waived to court
As "reporter" Manny Gamiz notes:
District Attorney ... did not give details on why the most serious charge against Campbell ["Peaches"] was withdrawn.
Manny, I'll tell you why.
It's the longstanding M.O. of our long un-opposed DA Jim Martin to parade serious charges around for the media, at first, but then to drop the major charges and passively go for a conviction on much lesser charges because that's much easier to get. It's like only shooting layups and never attempting a 3-pointer. But this way, at election time, under-achieving DA Jim (hiccup) Martin can brag about his "high percentage" conviction rate. Screw those crime victims and their families who wanted a shot at justice. DA Jim Martin is the Monty Hall of let's make a plea deal w/ criminals.
Lehigh County voters, don't get fooled (again).
On November 8, vote Ed Koren for Lehigh County District Attorney.
