This says it all…the DOJ’s new director decided to hold a presser announcing a federal investigation into the Baltimore police department instead of attending Officer Brian Moore’s funeral today. We’ve known Ms. Lynch to be Eric Holder in a dress and have reported on her mission to correct (her perceived) abuses by police departments. We feel this is an effort to federalize the police departments which is not the problem in the first place. Sure, police departments aren’t perfect but if we’re being honest the inner city is a total mess with rampant crime that is very difficult for these police officers to handle. This might be stating the obvious but Lynch should have gone to the funeral of Brian Moore today and left the politics out of it for just one day…
WASHINGTON – Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced Friday the Department of Justice will launch a federal civil rights investigation into the practices of the Baltimore Police Department.
“This investigation will begin immediately and will focus on allegations that Baltimore Police Department officers used excessive force including deadly force, conduct unlawful searches, seizures, and arrests, and engage in discriminatory policing,” Lynch said.
The unrest in Baltimore last week, and the tensions it exposed between the police and community, is the first major test of Lynch’s tenure.
