Same deal with Baltimore and to no ones surprise, found basically the same thing.
This indicates an “implicit” agenda, not an investigation. The automatons conducting the police department reviews had marching orders from the very top of the DOJ. Disgraceful!!
The report I’m familiar with is the amateurish, sloppy report on the Ferguson Police Department. Much of the report is based on “Anecdotal” evidence. Evidence that could have easily been substantiated or debunked.
I had the occasion to speak with several LAPD commanders who stated that the 13 years of a heavy handed DOJ consent decree only generated layers of administrative bureaucracy that took away valuable time on the street.
The new Attorney General stated in 2008,”Consent decrees are dangerous.” Calling them “Exercises of raw power that constitute an end run around the democratic process.”
The DOJ investigations are brought about by a use of force incident. Here’s a bulletin for the eggheads at PERF and the DOJ. Uses of force, no matter how justified, ain’t pretty.
Maybe the Justice Department can refocus on crime. Chicago comes to mind. Put a few aggressive gun squads in the ‘hood and take the cases federally. Maybe the violators will get more time than in the state courts and make these American communities safer. They can’t do much worse.
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!!
