The Black Lives Matter movement began after the shootings in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland where unarmed black men died as a result of their interactions with police.
This organization claimed they were peaceful, but what really happened were riots, looting and violence against law enforcement; resulting in the deaths of officers.
The DOJ under Barack Obama, instead of trying to stifle the flames of this division, only stoked the fire and let the flames grow. They decided to crack down on the ‘epidemic’ of police brutality against black citizens.
A series of investigations were launched and certain “agreements” with local police departments to stop the conflict were enforced.
This was widely viewed as an atrocious overreach and a back-door to “federalize” local law enforcement. Apparently, Attorney General Jeff Sessions may agree.
The Washington Post reports, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Justice Department officials to review reform agreements with troubled police forces nationwide, saying it was necessary to ensure that these pacts do not work against the Trump administration’s goals of promoting officer safety and morale while fighting violent crime.
In a two-page memo released Monday, Sessions said agreements reached previously between the department’s civil rights division and local police departments — a key legacy of the Obama administration — will be subject to review by his two top deputies, throwing into question whether all of the agreements will stay in place.
The memo was released not long before the department’s civil rights lawyers asked a federal judge to postpone until at least the end of June a hearing on a sweeping police reform agreement, known as a consent decree, with the Baltimore Police Department that was announced just days before President Trump took office.
Jeff Sessions isn’t waisting his time in office and is certainly not afraid to offend a few civil rights activists, if you could call them that.
