AG Loretta Lynch opens Chicago police probe

by LYNN SWEET  |  published on December 8, 2015

Good morning and thank you all for being here. I am joined today by Vanita Gupta, head of the department’s Civil Rights Division, and Zachary Fardon, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

The Department of Justice is committed to upholding the highest standards of law enforcement throughout the United States. Every American expects and deserves the protection of law enforcement that is effective, responsive, respectful and most importantly, constitutional – and each day, thanks to the tireless dedication of men and women who wear the badge, citizens from coast to coast receive just that. But when community members feel they are not receiving that kind of policing – when they feel ignored, let down or mistreated by public safety officials – there are profound consequences for the well-being of their communities, for the rule of law and for the countless law enforcement officers who strive to fulfill their duties with professionalism and integrity.

    This will all become a no man’s land once the DOJ steps in, but then is is Chicago. What can one expect? Go ahead Loretta, do your thing with our dime. Remember too that this nation will change the agencies as soon as we take back our government from your prime supporters, BO, the dem lemmings and the even dumber good old rinos! This is your warning darling!

    First, let me say that “officer” Van Dyke flat out committed murder. If you look at pictures of the guy, he doesn’t look like he’s playing with a full deck to begin with. Having said that, this is ONLY ONE incident. I also acknowledge that the bigger the department, the more “questionable” people are likely to get hired. There are bad apples in almost every bunch.
    Notwithstanding all of that, no city with a large black population is ever going to be treated fairly and equitably by the PC Police aka the department of “justice”. When it comes to “black areas” the police are damned if they do and damned if they don’t. If they stay out, they are “neglecting to protect”, if they go in, they are “oppressing” and “singling out” a “minority”. In places where you have “full integration” you don’t see this. But as black populations grow, they (like most others) have a strong tendency to “self-segregate”. Then the whole thing starts all over again.
