  •  Is Bıdɛn federalizing police?
    Posted: 10 May 2021 02:36 AM PDT — It appears the administration of Whιte House occupant, Joe Bıdɛn, is leveraging "social unrest" as a pretext to create a national police force. 

    A first step in that direction appears to be the Justice Department's "sweeping and extended look" into policing policies across the country. Attorney General Merrick Garland, for example, has ordered investigations into the policing in Louisville, Kentucky and Minneapolis, Minnesota. 
    Take aways...
    • The mantra, "Defund the police," should be understood to mean, "Defund local police and replace them with a federal police force."
    • Expect police unions to support a national police force with the same enthusiasm displayed by teachers' unions that supported the creation of the Department of Education.

    But Garland’s decision has also brought new pressure on the DOJ, with activists calling on the agency to quickly expand its investigations to other cities where residents have complained of police practices. How     Garland manages those requests and expectations, and marshals the department’s resources will be one of the toughest tests he faces as attorney general and a marker of the Bıdɛn administration’s commitment to police reform, DOJ watchers said.

    The initial probe announcements were “more like signals than noise in terms of what could be coming,” said Damon Hewitt, acting president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.

    “It must be kept up. It cannot be a flash in the pan. It must be kept up over years and frankly, across multiple administrations, for it to really take hold.”
