It’s a sad reality that under President Obama, our police forces were treated terribly.
Apparently, thanks to social justice warrior Barack, our cops were treated like enemies to black Americans and other minorities. He considered all of them to be crooked or cruel, ignoring the hard work and sacrifices they make every day to keep all Americans–including black people–safe from violent crime.
But the fact remains that liberals–both civil rights activists like Barack and empty-headed hippies like Bernie Sanders–have a grudge against anyone resembling authority. They consider all police to be of the same ilk as the few bad apples. The real danger comes when liberals like these are given power and they push for reforms and laws that give more rights to criminals than to law-abiding citizens and police officers.
Under Obama we saw the rise of anti-cop sentiments among many segments of our society. We also saw the rise of hate group Black Lives Matter, which by and large was formed thanks to the irresponsible rhetoric of the president.
But not only that, the former president worked with the Justice Department to further hamper local police, trying to institute regulations and practices that punished are brave men and women in blue, rather than empower them.
Thankfully, all that is coming to an end.
From The Washington Post:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Justice Department officials to review reform agreements with troubled police forces nationwide, saying it was necessary to ensure that these pacts do not work against the Trump administration’s goals of promoting officer safety and morale while fighting violent crime.
In a two-page memo released Monday, Sessions said agreements reached previously between the department’s civil rights division and local police departments — a key legacy of the Obama administration — will be subject to review by his two top deputies, throwing into question whether all of the agreements will stay in place.
The memo was released not long before the department’s civil rights lawyers asked a federal judge to postpone until at least the end of June a hearing on a sweeping police reform agreement, known as a consent decree, with the Baltimore Police Department that was announced just days before President Trump took office.
“The Attorney General and the new leadership in the Department are actively developing strategies to support the thousands of law enforcement agencies across the country that seek to prevent crime and protect the public,” Justice officials said in their filing. “The Department is working to ensure that those initiatives effectively dovetail with robust enforcement of federal laws designed to preserve and protect civil rights.”
Make no mistake: Obama and other liberals’ agenda was never about fixing problems in trouble police forces. It was always about exerting greater federal control over state and local police, the end goal being a nationalized police force.
Your local and state police are held accountable, ultimately, by you. You elect mayors and officials, who then pass policy that affects your police. In some states, you can even elect you sheriffs. But if Obama’s Justice Department had its way, the federal government would pass more and more regulations to control the police, making sure they operated based on polices set in D.C., not your local town.
Our police would then answer to the federal government, not the localities they’ve been sworn to protect. In that situation, how are they any different than the Nazi’s or Soviet’s federal police force, which were used to harass and violate citizens’ rights?
The end goal of everything the left does is to create a Socialist regime, where the people have no power. They will ever work to undermine our Constitutional Rights and expand the power of government, until we have nothing left.
That’s why they work so hard to control our police. And that’s why we can’t let them.
