DOJ Says They’ll Stop Investigating Police Misconduct — Promises More Drug War Instead
Washington, D.C. — (RT) The Justice Department should allocate more money to help police fight crime rather than spend scarce resources on lawsuits against police departments, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said. The DOJ has found much abuse within US policing in recent years.
Speaking before the National Association of Attorneys General winter meeting in Washington, DC, Sessions said his Department of Justice (DOJ) will include a task force that will analyze policing practices in the US in order to fight crime.
The Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety will employ the heads of major federal law enforcement agencies to “look at deficiencies in our current laws that have made them less effective in reducing crime, and propose new legislation.”
Part of the revamped DOJ mission will include reversing the suffering morale of law enforcement, which, “as a whole has been unfairly maligned and blamed for the unacceptable deeds of a few bad actors,” Sessions said.
