    Obama cracks down on abuses by big-city police departments

    In a marked shift from the Bush administration, President Obama's Justice Department is aggressively investigating several big urban police departments for systematic civil rights abuses such as harassment of racial minorities, false arrests, and excessive use of force.

    In interviews, activists and attorneys on the ground in several cities where the DOJ has dispatched civil rights investigators welcomed the shift. To progressives disappointed by Eric Holder's Justice Department on key issues like the failure to investigate Bush-era torture and the prosecution of whistle-blowers, recent actions by the DOJ's Civil Rights Division are a bright spot.

    Does this appear to anyone to be a time to be going after the cops, in some racial charged tirade? Once again, your Obama bungling in action.

    I didn't realize that Obama was in charge of the police?

    He thinks he's in charge of everything.....And with his attack dog Holder going after cops that keep people safe this summer, I'd say the beach is out.
