Good Thursday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president participates in a roundtable on Transition to Greatness: Restoring, Rebuilding, and Renewing
- President Trump delivers remarks at a joint fundraising committee dinner
Loretta Lynch to advise probe of NYPD over Floyd protests
New York, which was set on fire, looted, and vandalized has brought in Loretta Lynch, former AG under Obama in case you forgot, will be investigating police behavior during the protests/crime sprees. New York city doesn’t have bail so all the criminals who were caught destroying the city have long been released. They’ll never come back, but the cops do not have that luxury.
As the defund police movement plows along, there won’t be any police left to defund because people will and are leaving the police forces. Why would they stay? They have to go out and face mobs of people who are throwing things at them and screaming at them and they are under a microscope for the way they treat violent criminals wrecking havoc on their beat. If it were me, I’d leave the police force. The residents don’t seem to care, perhaps they want their city destroyed. Let them have it. I say this as someone who doesn’t like the police. I don’t think they are all bad, I think most of them are good people but it’s best to have as little interaction with the police as possible.
The move came despite concerns over the numerous consent decrees that Lynch’s Justice Department (DOJ) arranged with police departments, which observers said actually increased crime rates by disincentivizing policing and causing police to pull out of dangerous neighborhoods.
The consent decrees asserted that numerous police departments across the country were engaged in systemic racism. Critics, however, said the DOJ was improperly concluding that disparate enforcement numbers were necessarily evidence of police racism.
Don’t go to New York, it’s very unsafe and will only get more dangerous once their police force is diminished.
‘Qualified Immunity’ is the hot issue on the hill for police reform legislation
Qualified immunity gives civil servants immunity from lawsuits as they do their government jobs. The controversy in the Senate is whether the police force should have qualified immunity, opening the door to civil lawsuits against police officers. “A Democratic proposal would make sweeping overhauls to the legal doctrine. But GOP senators, backed by the White House, say changes are largely a non-starter. ” Good. The leftists want to be able to cripple law enforcement with legal proceedings where such cases will be funded by well-heeled organizations like BLM and the ACLU and some blue collar cop with no money will be decimated in the legal system with piles of legal bills. This is what the left does for other pet causes and this is what the left is doing now.
How about we end qualified immunity FOR ALL CIVIL SERVANTS, even elected officials. How about them apples?
The left is working a multi pronged approach to destroy law and order. They want to make working conditions so unpleasant officers quit. They want to burden them with bad faith “investigations” that put them in criminal jeopardy and they want to make it so risky for them to do their jobs, they just stand around and watch crime unfold. And if their information is leaked on the internet and they are at physical risk, that is too bad. At the same time, TV shows and movies that show police in a positive light are getting yanked off the air so that people don’t get the mistaken impression that police are “good guys.”
There needs to be a way for police forces to remove bad cops, that’s a first step. If the left were really interested in law and order they would want a healthy police force and way to remove bad cops like that dude that killed George Floyd. How did someone with a rap sheet like his stay on the job? But the goal isn’t to remove the bad cops it’s to cripple to police force and law and order. Don’t forget that.
This is certainly true. Hannity: President Trump is a victim of crooked cops, too
I expect to see more of this. Manhunt underway in California after a deputy was shot in ‘ambush’ attack
And that’s all I’ve got, now go beat back the angry mob!
