From Wirecutter’s site, here.
“The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices,” the letter reads. “And identify the best policies and practices that can prevent more Fergusons and vastly improve policing in communities across the nation.”
The letter calls for the appointment of a federal czar within the Justice Department to monitor and oversee local police departments that receive federal funding.
They will end up bullying and abusing local police.
The CBC claims they want to stop the militarization of police while they are actually demanding nationalization of the police in all states, a move that would ensure the U.S. would one day be a police state.
The letter claims “systemic racial bias”, using the Ferguson case as an example and while also acknowledging the facts in the Brown case are unclear. They want control over hiring and firing in the local police organizations by implementing national standards. The czar would constantly oversee local law enforcement and new rules and regulations would be passed non-stop. It would be another uncontrollable and overly-large and powerful executive branch agency.
Don’t let a good crisis go to waste. It sounds like a new pen and phone action by Obama is coming our way.
If you were worried about the U.S. becoming a police state, you should be terrified now. Central control over our police organizations will lead to exactly that.
The people who want this said it would be meant to “prevent more Fergusons.” These are the same people who would readily hang Officer Wilson without evidence and without a trial.
The DOJ is doing that now. Instead of prosecuting real criminals, Holder is involving himself, at the behest of Obama, in the local police affairs of Ferguson without cause. There is absolutely no evidence that the St. Louis police won’t thoroughly and effectively investigate the case of Officer Darren Wilson.
Holder has no business being involved in the case and now the CBC wants it to be done consistently.
There will be no state’s rights if they have their way.
