With all he muck being thrown around our nations capitol lately the directive by the Attorney General to review all current and contemplated “consent decrees” went largely unnoticed.
You know, those reports on 13 of our nations police departments that all…”exhibited a racial bias, found violations when confronting citizens and used excessive force whilst making arrests.”
The report I am familiar with, Ferguson, was sloppy, riddled with “anecdotal ” evidence and misstated material facts. Some knucklehead had to review and approve that report. I wondered if he/she could read.
Funny, all the reports are alike. You can change the name of the police departments on any narrative and they all look, basically, the same.
In his memo the AG stated that the job of local law enforcement must be handled locally. Not by the federal government. Additionally, he said that all local LE agencies accepting funding from the DOJ must adhere to the DOJ’s grant provisions. Simply stated…you want DOJ dollars, you must honor the ICE detainers. Money’s a hell of a motivator.
It is the hope of all law abiding people to have the DOJ refocus it’s efforts away from interfering with local police departments and get busy on our countries exploding crime rate. Chicago comes to mind.
Looks like AG Sessions is off to a good start. Let’s all hope he is hugely successful!
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!
