Carlos Vega, candidate running against Larry Krasner for Philadelphia District Attorney, returns to the Dom Giordano Program to give his opinion on the court decision to disallow safe injection sites in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Krasner has been a vocal proponent of the push for safe injection sites in the city as a solution to the heroin epidemic, which Vega highly disagrees with as a solution. Vega argues that safe injection sites are bad for neighborhoods, bad for individuals, and bad for parenting. Vega explains how his experience living and growing up in the city has helped mold his stance against safe injection sites. (Photo by Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images)
