Richard Berk of the School of Arts and Sciences said it’s too early to know how the policies of progressive prosecutors like Larry Krasner in Philadelphia will affect crime rates. “There’s a natural variation in things like homicide, natural in the sense that we don’t know what causes it,” Berk said. “And we basically try to treat it as noise and don’t try to tell a story until we have that nailed down.”
