Feds sue Ferguson to force police reform

by
February 11, 2016

The Justice Department is suing the city of Ferguson in an attempt to forcibly overhaul the city’s troubled police and court operations, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday.

The decision comes hours after city leaders sought to revise a long- negotiated settlement, citing prohibitive costs of executing such a deal.

“There is no cost for constitutional policing,” Lynch said late Wednesday.

“Painstaking negotiations lasted more than 26 weeks as we sought to remedy literally years of systematic deficiencies,” she said of the government’s action, which followed a public announcement last month of a tentative agreement that the attorney general described as “both fair and cost-effective . . . Last night, the City Council rejected the consent decree approved by their own negotiators; their decision leaves us no further choice.”

Lynch said the residents of Ferguson have been waiting “decades for justice,” having endured civil rights breaches that established a pattern and practice of racially biased policing.

    The Feds need to stay out of local and state business. They can’t efficiently run the country so why should we trust them to run our Police Departments too? They need to focus on the criminals in the news daily. Like Killary and Odummer. When they arrest felons then maybe they can concentrate on misdemeanors in smaller communities. They bowed and allowed Iran to get nukes. But are worried about a few cops? Washington doesn’t have it’s priorities in order.. And the AG is another Muslim Brotherhood member in the administration being led by the Brotherhood in Chief to disrupt the country with more racist propaganda.

    ‘Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.’
    Another step toward federalizing local police departments…there can be no states’ rights in a Marxist socialist system. ALL must be controlled by the Central Authority/state/fed gov’t. Now Ferguson resists on indisputably meritorious grounds–WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY AND CAN’T PRINT IT. Not that they are resisting the propaganda, the politically correct social engineering toward “social justice” but simply reality gets in the way.

    For Barry and his boys and girls though, their only ‘reality’ is “you will obey”. A US president is the chief law ENFORCEMENT officer in the nation, commanding not only all of the military but all the executive branches which are ALL ENFORCEMENT agencies. Under Barry ALL of them have been arming up and adding enforcers. Barry’s just working to get his agenda of “fundamentally transforming America” completed. He won’t get ALL cities’ forces under fed control, not even all major ones but he’s getting SOME of them and using the carrot/stick of “here’s some money” (or matching funds, equipment, grant, etc.) if you obey or we send in fed investigators or file a lawsuit with fun stuff like injunctions and costs and time consuming requirements, etc. on most of the rest of large enough size.

    “You WILL comply.” In all totalitarian schemes–whether in sci-fy like the ‘Borg’ or real life like the USSR, Red China, and yes, though it’s become politically incorrect to mention and use it as an alarmingly apt comparison, Nazi Germany–ALL power and ‘rights’ are the central gov’t, the State’s. Individual states (and certainly not individual cities or counties) cannot challenge that without being targeted for further “enforcement” measures.

    This road will get a great deal more rough the farther down it we travel and we seem to be headed that way unless people start waking up and learning history’s lessons in time.

    Can you say “Police State”? Can you say “Gestapo”? Can you say “Martial Law”? Is there anyone left who truly believes Obama to be an American? If so, please explain to me how, and why, you believe this. His every action is anti-democracy, anti-American or anti-Christian! I said, as did thousands of others, that Lynch was as racist as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, yet Congress accepted her as another Obama Minion, placed in a position to further Obama’s agenda to bring to fruition the collapse of democracy, as we know it. Communism is alive and well in the United States and all we do is post our grievances.

    The Constitution gives us the RIGHT to redress grievances against the very government we elected to act and speak for all of us, so, why not exercise that RIGHT by contacting your congressional representatives in Washington D.C. and demanding they do something about this.

    Since the Constitution does not grant the FEDERAL government rights to govern state and local municipalities and the 10th Amendment states “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”, then the D.O,J., i.e. Lynch, cannot legally force any non-Federal agency to “do-as-they-say”. If such agencies are discriminating against race, sex or religious affiliations, then the government can address these issues. Under no circumstance can our Federal government simply “intervene” on the complaint of obvious agitators, much less sue said municipality.

    What do you say we get up a fund to send them all on a one way trip back to Africa? Give them 20,000 dollars and free passage if they renounce their American citizenship? They have to agree not to return nor let their children return, tho. Hell, it would be worth it to give them 50,000.

    Why didn’t we just pick our OWN dammed cotton and let the Muslims buy them in the first place? We would have been a HELL of a lot better off.

  • ADRoberts

    This is easy. Lynch is following the orders of Obama. And Obama wants to make sure that this town, with thousands others, goes broke. So if they can’t put the pants on them with an expensive agreement to hogtie the police, they will force them to defend themselves in court with lots of legal fees.

  • pete G

    Just stop and think what the world would be like without Negroes or Muslims. Total peace everywhere. And we have a combination of both in the white house and the justice department.

  • Willie

    Maybe when a black commits a crime and a white officer is first on the scene , he should keep the criminal at bay and wait for a black officer to make the arrest , either that or make all policemen black !

  • gene613

    The Justice Department used a flawed data report to determine a pattern of discrimination in Ferguson. Blacks are 67% of the population yet are over 80% of those arrested. The real data would not include males and females,it would not include those younger than 16 or older than 35 (a much higher percent age of whites is found in the older population of Ferguson);that most arrests come about due to the reported crimes asking for police assistance-the call ins from the black population are much higher than from the white population,resulting in more police investigations and arrests.The Justice Dept will lose IF this reaches a Supreme Court with its current make up.

  • jeanette

    i saw a video of the black thug in a store, bullying the store worker, then he tries to get a cop’s gun, what part of idiot is hard to understand?

  • WeirOnlyHuman

    Many blacks will never get out of the slave mindset of having the government step in to do things for them and give them free stuff. That’s been happening for more than a half-century, when LBJ began spending billions on his so-called “Great Society” programs. Now it’s in the trillions, but a large percentage of blacks are worse off today than they were in 1964. Nevertheless, we continue to see black demagogues preaching racism and hatred to the street life morons who eat it up like dogs having bones tossed at them. Educated, sophisticated blacks are embarrassed by those in their race who, thanks to the liberal media, appear to represent the entirety of the black population. The truth is that they are the dregs of society that want to pull others down into the sewer with them. Ferguson is just one example of how thugs can distort the facts by claiming racism is responsible for everything. Those who continue to believe that will always be slaves and will give birth to more generations of slaves.

    Another case with this administration where the tail is wagging the dog…..

    No federalized police force, huh?

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    First, DOJ must sue the city of Baltimore for too much corruptions of the city elected and appointed officials. Baltimore one of the most corrupt cities in the US, has been bailed out by federal taxpayers since 1946 in order to improve the lives of the black majority who have been engrained in violence like Chicago. Tens of billions of federal tax dollars have been provided to that city to help the residents to alleviate the their lives. Nothing happened. I hope those black elected leaders help their people become strong and dependable instead of being dependent full of crimes and violence.

  • Let me get this straight, if possible. One black brain dead thug gets what he’s obviously had coming for years, the rest of the black community see’s a chance to get a new TV and burn their own town down, and now, what’s left of the town is being sued by a black attorney general who works for a racist democrat black CIC. Makes perfect sense to me, when you live in a BANANNA REPUBLIC!!! Lets not forget to properly thank our democrat governor, NIXON, for allowing it to happen, or all the idiots who voted this piece of crap in for another term.
    GO TRUMP!!!

  • RufusVonDufus

    How sad that Lynch, Obama’s black AG, has the time to hassle Ferguson and the will to see justice done, whatever that means, but she has no time to go after a person who committed a much worse crime by allowing top secret government info to be viewed by all of the terrorist organizations and foreign governments at their leisure and now comments that she cannot recall anything! I guess Martha Stewart and General Petraeus are just farts in a windstorm compared to the she devil bwitch, Hillary Clinton!

    • BOC

      Too much law enforcement and judicial abuse in the city of Ferguson and they have known it for some time and promoted it. Now they must come-to-terms with it.

  • knowsit

    Why doesn’t Loretta look into the White House transgressions, like the IRS, where literally hundreds of crimes were committed in hiding the evidence, or Fast and Furious, which killed hundreds if not thousands in Mexico, where one of the most deadly guns traded to Mexico showed up in El Chapo’s hide out.
    The truth is the Fed Gov is corrupted to the hilt, suppressing all investigation and the Black community is acting like the Mafia, circling the wagons, see no evil, hear no evil.
    And that included our squatter in Chief, and let’s face it, Loretta Lunch, who is not showing any intention in picking up on investigating Eric Holder’s many crimes

  • Dick

    I have a great idea. Let the handcuffed police stay in the police station, and let the people handle there own shit……How long do you think that will last. This will get rid of the thugs that are doing wrong. Maybe Baltimore will get back to a city again. suit, suit, suit, is that all the Dept. of bull shit knows what to do.

    This country, under the “leadership” of, and by, Obigmistake has taken over, and made impotent, State’s government. Only a POS like Obigmistake, who has no respect for America or Americans-at-large, would create an idea such as THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SUING a small town like Ferguson. Any way this hateful “president” can harm American taxpayers he will do it in a minute. Normally, I would say heartbeat, but he has NONE. City and State officials in Ferguson, MO should be in charge of making changes WITHOUT Federal take-over! A coup on Ferguson by Feds is un-American!

    Ferguson’s past constitutional violations by the city’s police department and municipal court is a major problem that will require dismantling and restructuring to meet compliance standards.

      • BOC

        Ferguson, has long abused its law enforcement system to generate revenue from ticketing mostly black and poor residents. St. Louis County, Missouri, arrested and sent to trial a black clergyman who was later found not guilty of a charge stemming from his arrest outside the Ferguson Police Department nearly a year and a half ago for praying. Since when was praying against the law in America. We know it was against roman law during Jesus time on earth, which was encouraged by the Pharisees and Sadducees, which fits what’s going on in Ferguson.

        In order to put on this trial for this ordinance violation, [Ferguson] probably spent several thousand dollars, which could have been used much more creatively on needed issues centered around Ferguson, according to the Huffington Post.

        I, just like the Post, wonder how much the law firm of Curtis, Heinz, Garrett & O’Keefe (CHGO) bills the city of Ferguson, Mo. for the part-time prosecutor’s work they perform. It should also be noted that their attorneys hold a variety of roles in local governments within St. Louis County’s broken municipal system.

        Corruption ‘run-amok, that what the Federal Government discovered there in Ferguson, Mo., outside St. Louis.

    The left-wit lunatics are running the asylum. As usual left-wit ideology pretends to be doing something good, the reality of course is that this going to turn out to be “bad medicine.” Remember sometime back, Obama threw up a trial balloon advocating that the nations police forces be run by the federal government. Obama claimed that this would make police more controllable, and more accountable. This was not acceptable to most, but the administration keeps pushing in this direction. Could they do it? Yes they could, and here are a few ways that they could get towns, cities, and states to accept this.
    [1] a few more Fergusons, to anger the general populations
    [2] Suggest to the town, city, or state, that if they hand over control of their police forces over to the federal government, then the federal government could make these police forces more accountable, more controllable, more transparent, and of course more disciplined, compassionate, tolerant, less bigoted, and less racist. This is a load of crap.
    [3] Now for the carrot, which is the selling point. The federal government would take on the costs of policing, equipment, buildings, personal, everything. This would free-up money for infrastructure, the poor, the needy. This would also eliminate possible law-suits against the state, city or town, as they would no longer be responsible for policing or the actions of any police officer. Yup another do-gooder idea, sure thing.
    Every truly, fully socialist country, in order to succeed with their agenda, must have complete 100% control over their police. Who by the way, would have powers far exceeding what American Police have now, all this stuff, “accountable, more controllable, more transparent, and of course more disciplined, compassionate, tolerant, less bigoted, and less racist.” All this stuff would be gone.
    Fortunately, Obama and his gang have less then a year to get this done, which means it won’t get done, unless a Rino is elected president, or commie Bernie, or the Hilda-Beast becomes president.

    The only problem with Ferguson is its mayor and the racist scum who burned and destroyed their city. The law couldn’t do anything since the governor and mayor gave them a “stand down” order which allowed the racist scum to do as they wanted. Why don’t all of the officers quit and go to another city which would appreciate them and then leave Ferguson without any law enforcement?

    • RufusVonDufus

      I might be wrong, but it seems you are mixing up the morons in Baltimore with the people in Ferguson.

        Ferguson’s Proposed Changes To Federal Consent Decree Prompt Backlash

        The Ferguson City Council made a provocative decision Tuesday night to attached conditions on a consent decree with the federal government. The decree was aimed at moving the city forward after Michael Brown’s shooting death, but city officials contended that the agreement could lead to financial ruin. Needless to say, the council’s choice wasn’t well received by the Department of Justice or residents.

            I love it when people who have never worn a badge and walked “in harm’s way” try to “armchair quarterback” law enforcement.

            1) I doubt that a single one of those (in)Justice Department lawyers ever did;
            2) who do you think is going to pay those millions of dollars in “improvements” demanded by the “consent decree”?; and,
            3) a negotiated settlement like this isn’t final until both sides actually agree and place their official signatures to the “bottom line” – it’s obvious that Ferguson officials had “second thoughts” as to the terms and conditions of that 131 page document:

            https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/2699153/Negotiated-Ferguson-Draft-Consent-Decree.pdf

            And as I wrote earlier, Ferguson should disband their PD and court, thereby forcing St. Louis County to provide for the protection of the 70% black town.

            Gee, Ben: seeing as how 70% of Ferguson’s residents are black, why do you find it unusual that the majority of traffic tickets are of black motorists???

            And when some (many?) of those ticketed black motorists see fit to ignore court dates, why do you and the other LibSoc SJWs see the issuing of Warrants of Arrest for “Failure to Appear” to be unjust?

            Would you find non-blacks “thumbing their noses” at the criminal justice system to be “OK” with you???

            Here’s an idea: let Ferguson disband their police and court system, forcing St. Louis County to provide police and court services for the residents of Ferguson.

          • BOC

            Gee, Juan, it’s understandable that you would ASSume the obvious on the face of this, but let’s peel back the Banana. On the surface and from afar it would appear the demographics of Ferguson are just what you say, the percentage of Blacks makes them the majority.

            But demographics in this case is far more than what you looked at.because you have only partially looked at never been there. Demographically, Ferguson is so intertwined in St. Louis, which gives this another quantifiable characteristic which cannot be ignored like you are trying to do. Dominate [black] race in this case would be very misleading. It isn’t a determinate as to why blacks are ticketed more. The federal government figured this out but you seem to be having problems with these statistics. Could it be because you never had the course or because you never been there before, I have? There far more whites traveling in and around Ferguson as other people of color.

            Disbanding Ferguson because they are too far gone will be a Federal government decision. Let us hope that Ferguson is instead, salvageable.

        • BOC

          Did it ever cross your mind that the Federal government concluded that the police problem in Ferguson was in so disrepair that in order to expedite change, dismantling via contracting county enforcement was the best option. To ensure this option would be exercised up the salaries of Ferguson police which far exceeds what is allocated annually.

          Tabloidian, indeed. So, this is how you waste your time.

          ‘A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!

            So, why are you wasting yours, it seems to me that you are so wrapped up, in believing that you have an utopia coming your way, that you refuse to see the forest for the trees.

          • BOC

            Nothing fictional about me. I function on faith and I’m highly perceptive.

          • BOC

            I haven’t imagined a thing. And as far as perfection? I only know of one person who can claim it and he’s will always remain the only one. I’ll let you fill-in the blank_ _ _ (all caps).

          The Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The task force was created to strengthen community policing and trust among law enforcement officers and the communities they serve, especially in light of recent events around the country that have underscored the need for and importance of lasting COLLABRATIVE relationships between local police and the public.

          They have found engaging with law enforcement officials, technical advisors, youth and community leaders, and nongovernmental organizations is the best way to address this societal fracture. Nowhere does it say that he wants to take over police departments across the nation. Your idea that he involves himself with a serious domestic problem which he should as POTUS which we elected him to do is wrong and counterproductive, it is not.

          Turning his back on a major problem such as this, would be the worst thing any leader of the free world could do. That’s something I would expect from a ‘W’ Bush administration or people that think like you. Ignore the problem and consider it business as usual, which is the problem we are now facing.

        • BOC

          Look!

          Scaife, Unruh, and many other disconnected and out of touch ‘utter and publishers’ view the world upside down, with them on top.

          The POTUS 44 put together a task force and commission made up of a broad range of cultural, professional and academic discipline of people. There was nothing monarchical about it. It’s not about what a Sharpton (NAN), or a ‘shakedown artist’ like a, Jesse Jackson (Rainbow Push) wants regarding policing. The President made sure his initiative was all inclusive and it was(is).

        • BOC

          Boy, O’boy, you went deep in the gutter for some of these ‘doozies’. By the way, some of which, don’t work or are obsolete and off-line.

  • Ken says

    It has been over 27 years since the voters have reminded the government in Washington DC that THEY are OUR EMPLOYEES. It’s time for a change.

    • BOC

      As long as it’s not a TP/GOP change.

  • Kevin Harrison

    all thanks to another oblowme ass kisser

    • BOC

      You must follow the law and the constitution. Ferguson functioned like a third world country.

      • Pam

        Try telling Lynch and Soetoro to follow the Constitution! They think it is toilet paper!
        And check the stats, any time you have a city that is 80+% black THEY ALL FUNCTION LIKE THIRD WORLD HELL HOLES!!

        • BOC

          Real stereotypical of you Pam. Let us know when you’re ready for real world life experiences.

          • Pam

            I grew up in Bucktown, Chicago, worked for Chicago Public Library at North & Pulaski. My parents were both factory workers. My husband grew up in the Austin neighborhood, his family worked for “streets & san.”. We lived through the King assassination, “desegregation” of the schools and the onset of “affirmative action”.
            We lost count of the number of friends and family who were mugged, shot, killed, etc.
            PLEASE DON’T TELL ME ABOUT THE “REAL WORLD”!!

          • BOC

            Gee, you could have fooled me and many others based on the ‘bubble’ posting. If you’re trying to tell us you’re from the ‘hood’, just come right out and say so. You aren’t the only one who can lay claim to relatives and friends who have met a tragic end.

  • dirkshomebiz

    So the black racist lynch once again is more concerned with shoving her black views down the throats of legitimate police organizations. Try fixing your corrupt black dept of injustice.

    • kbfallon

      And getting the blacks to respect the laws of our country…99.5% of these shootings occurred in the middle of CRIMES being committed.

      • RufusVonDufus

        Brown got exactly what he was asking for, no more/no less!

    • BOC

      I wouldn’t call Ferguson Mo. a legitimate police organization and neither is their court system. DOJ and Washington seems to agree with my position.

      • The Redhawk

        NO just another “made up” LIE by Sharpton, Holder and O- Dipdstick…..

    • The Redhawk

      31% of the Population and they commit 57% of all crimes… MORE figures being IGNORED by ODUMBO and his Criminals

      • pete G

        Hillary AND Bernie Sanders both saying how wronged the Negroes have been done in America when everyone Knows any other country in the world would never put up with the amount of crime they comet, they would be shot not jailed.

        • podunk1

          PC has destroyed the Constitution and allegiance! Obama AND Lynch have zero legislative or judicial powers. SCOTUS and courts have very limited powers in determining guilt or punishment! Amendment 6 “…all criminal … right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed…”, which would be in Ferguson etc., by jury there, according to Supreme Law text within the Constitution or real statute applicable in the district according to the entire Constitution… at nominal cost and lapsed time!

          Lynch is engaging herself and office in felony extortion, insurrection, and rebellion against the Constitution beginning with Amendment 14 Section 1 “… No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens…”. Because the violations are federal, CONGRESS is obliged to apply Amendment 14 Section 3 “No (oath bound) person shall … hold any office… (who has) engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…”, ban Lynch from office, and proceed with Article 1 Sections 1-2-3-6 impeachment and Article 3-2&3 treason.

          Insurrection, rebellion, and treason within government will end when those greatest threats to the nation are prosecuted to the point where betrayal of allegiance is prosecuted as highest capital crimes and threats to freedom and existence.

        • The Redhawk

          The BIGGEST WRONG for BLACKS were and are Perpetrated by Then DUMMIECRATS like LBJ and Presently by Progressive Plantation Owners like BHO-ZO..Sharpton.. SHILLERY. Holder. Loretta Lynch and the Progressive members of House and Senate including the Black Caucus..

      • Pam

        You meant thirteen percent, right?

        • The Redhawk

          Yes Pam…Typo error on my part

    • pete G

      I knew without question the woman was corrupt or Obama wouldn’t have even considered her for the job. Some people were saying, i hope she’s honest, fools is what they are who don’t understand their President. Negroes stick together even when it’s wrong, and they call white people the great Satin. Their every bit as evil, or worse.

  • Ken says

    With the help of “OUR” RINOs in the Senate this bltches appointment by Obama was approved. It’s time for a change. Make America Great Again.

    • RufusVonDufus

      So right!

    • BOC

      Clean up your language on this thread. You are degrading an already declining 1776 blogosphere.

      • Ken says

        Put your glasses on Ldiot – how much cleaner would you like it?

        • BOC

          Work on it, you’ll know when you get there.

          • Ken says

            You’re about as relevant as Kaney West and his bride.

          • BOC

            Who’s, Kaney West?

          • Ken says

            If you should float to the surface – take a breathe first and then wipe your eyes. If you still don’t get it; google the name – you’ll see the relevance.

          • BOC

            Well, Kenny someone should try spelling it correctly, first and foremost. That’s what I was pointing out in the first place. Sorry you missed it, or couldn’t spell it.

          • Ken says

            If you google it – it’ll take you to it – like I said not relevant and West isn’t either

          • BOC

            Still having challenges with that name, I see.

  • Retired Marine

    Your tax money at work, let’s fix a non-existant problem because a black thug got his ass capped by a white cop, and odipstick put in his community organizer opinion about the police being racist. Our government is loaded with stupid and criminals.

    • RufusVonDufus

      Thankfully not for much longer!

      • BOC

        This doesn’t let Ferguson, Mo. off the hook. They have to still face the music.

      • BOC

        Stop dreaming!

        • The Redhawk

          Why Hello A-SHOLE! Flaying the ‘BLACK LIES MATTER” sheet today???

      • The Redhawk

        and it is driving them NUTS!

    • BOC

      It’s a major problem, indeed. That’s why our government is putting a stop to it. Too much of a ‘jackboot’ environment out of control.

    • The Redhawk

      BULLS EYE BRO!!! SEMPER FI!!!
      Whenever BHO_ZO has Severe Issues to face like a tanking Economy.. having to add troops in Afghanistan ( die to his SCREW UPS) Etc etc and ISIS coming through his unprotected Sothern Border..IRAN just making a Joke of our Navy…..He gets his DOJ lap dogs to start RIOTS gain…
