Jeff Sessions Wants to Unregulate the Police

The police are already the enforcement force of Patriarchal White Supremacy. Jeff Sessions, of course, apparently wants to just let them go with it…

From the New York Times

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered a sweeping review of federal agreements with dozens of law enforcement agencies, an examination that reflects President Trump’s emphasis on law and order and could lead to a retreat on consent decrees with troubled police departments nationwide.

In a memorandum dated March 31 and made public Monday, the attorney general directed his staff to look at whether law enforcement programs adhere to principles put forth by the Trump administration, including one declaring that “the individual misdeeds of bad actors should not impugn” the work police officers perform “in keeping American communities safe.”

Basically, they want to make it easier for the state-sanctioned mafia enforcers to carry out Agent Orange’s “Law and Order” (hint: White Supremacy) agenda…

As part of its shift in emphasis, the Justice Department went to court on Monday to seek a 90-day delay in a consent decree to overhaul Baltimore’s embattled Police Department. That request came just days before a hearing, scheduled for Thursday in the United States District Court in Baltimore, to solicit public comment on the agreement, which was reached in principle by the city and the Justice Department in the waning days of the Obama administration.

Fucking great. Baltimore has that consent decree in the first place because it’s police department is one of the most overtly racist in the country… which, frankly, is saying something, considering the fact that basically the entire US police force is overtly racist.

But who’s surprised, really? This is Jeff Sessions we’re talking about. This is the man who was too racist for fucking Strom Thurmond, and could not be a federal judge in fucking Alabama in the 1980s.

I mean… just how racist do you have to be to be too racist for fucking Strom Thurmond (the man who, by the way, conducted a 24-hour filibuster of the Civil Rights Act of 1957) and 1980s Alabama?

    it’s going to be an eternal 4 years, and who knows what the hell after that? the antiquity of this racist goon, and of trump himself, just make this seem like the mausoleum regime. we’ve been taken over by mummies, preserving the worst things of the 20th century in place of their entrails.

    Basically DOJ is trying to tell the Baltimore police: “that habit you had of ‘taking people for a ride’ -- that you agreed to stop doing because it was naughty? it’s approved, now, have fun.”

    The Gestapo never had all the power they thought they deserved. No police agency ever has. Naturally the little cracker Sessions, wants to make America’s police agencies even less accountable to public needs. Vile little man.
