The Justice Department late Monday asked a federal judge for more time to "review and assess" a proposed agreement to overhaul the Baltimore Police Department, saying it needed to determine how it might interfere with Attorney General Jeff Sessions' new focus on fighting violent crime. ... Sessions has not committed to such an agreement and has repeatedly said he believes broad investigations of police departments risk unfairly smearing entire agencies and harming officer morale. He has also suggested that officers' reluctance to aggressively police has contributed to a spike in violence in some cities.Sessions is clearly of the view that as long as the cops confine their brutality to stamping on the faces of "those people", he has no problem with "aggressive policing" by "warrior cops".
He reiterated that concern in the memo, adding that "local control and local accountability are necessary for effective policing. It is not the responsibility of the federal government to manage non-federal law enforcement agencies."
Doesn't bother Sessions if you happen to be one of "those people". For you know that calling the kind of cops that Sessions and his boss, the Hair Furor are fond of is just as likely to end up with them putting you in jail (or a bullet in your head) as any other outcome.
That's what the emphasis on getting the cops to follow the law was all about. That's what "to protect and to serve" is about. "Occupy and enforce" turns those who would help the cops into snitches, or, in an earlier parlance, quislings and collaborators.
