President Obama is fueling racial tensions between African-AmericansSheriff Clarke, an African-American who’s been in office since 2002,
and the police to justify a federal takeover of local law enforcement,
warned Milwaukee’s Democratic Sheriff David A. Clarke.
sent out a series of tweets warning that the Obama administration was
exploiting recent police shootings, including the deaths of two
Hattiesburg, Miss., police officers on Saturday, to incite racial
division so the Justice Dept. could expand federal control over local
“Obama’s reaction will be to sic [the DOJ] on Hattiesburg P.D. to
look for patterns of racism,” he said about the Hattiesburg shootings.
He’s right: back in March the Obama administration published the Task Force on 21st Century Policing,
a plan which advocates the federalization of police agencies across the
country by forcing them to adhere to stricter requirements when they
receive federal funding.
“The U.S. Department of Justice, through the Office of Community
Oriented Policing Services [COPS] and Office of Justice Programs, should
provide technical assistance and incentive funding to jurisdictions
with small police agencies that take steps towards shared services,
regional training, and consolidation,” one of the plan’s numerous
President Obama said the plan’s recommendations “are directed at the 18,000 law enforcement jurisdictions that are out there.”
“I’m going to be asking Eric Holder and the Justice Department and
his successor [current A.G. Lynch] to go through all these
recommendations so that we can start implementing them,” he said.
“I know that one area that’s going to be of great interest is whether
we can expand the COPS program that in the past has been very effective,
continues to be effective, but is largely underfunded – to see if we
can get more incentives for local communities to apply some of the best
practices and lessons that are embodied in this report.”
“But a lot of our work is going to involve local police chiefs, local
elected officials, states recognizing that the moment is now for us to
make these changes.”
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who gave rioters “space to
destroy” property during the Baltimore riots and even told police to
stand down, was one of only three mayors who provided broad input for
the Task Force on 21st Century Policing.
“The federal government can be a strong partner in our efforts in
build better relationships between the police and community,” she said
in written testimony before the task force.
By allowing the Baltimore riots to spiral out of control, the mayor
and the Justice Dept. were able to use the unrest to justify the federal
expansion into local law enforcement.
Sheriff Clarke is definitely spot on with his warnings, then.
Since 1871 the United States president and the United States Congress has been playing politics under a different set of rules and policies. The American people do not know that there are two Constitutions in the United States. The first penned by the leaders of the newly independent states of the United States in 1776. On July 4, 1776, the people claimed their independence from Britain and DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC was born.
