    She's such a hack.

    After giving rioters " room to destroy " she brought in Al Sharpton as a shield and now the Obama administration ?

    Question though - Why have so many US Police- city- municipal and state level been investigated by the DOJ?

    I have no doubt that something went way, way off the tracks in this particular incident and that it's likely there was police misconduct involved. I also don't think we have the complete story yet.

    I really can't think of a whole lot of reasonable scenarios where a perp gets hooked up, tossed in a paddy wagon and comes out dead from a spinal injury. Yeah, it's possible that he was on PCP or something and thrashed around enough to injure himself but the short clip I saw of them loading him didn't look like that was happening. Based on the little bit of information I've heard regarding this I don't have a problem with some kind of charges against the cops. If they're not responsible then it will probably come out in the wash but there sure seems to be enough to warrant a good, long look at what happened.

    There is also enough stuff going on to warrant a look at the PD as a whole.....and the prosecutor's office....and the mayor's office. There seems to be a whole lot of stuff wrong in Baltimore. That, however, isn't for the DoJ to determine at this time. Let the State deal with this right now. The DoJ has a definite agenda when it comes to this kind of thing. They would like nothing more than to nationalize all the local police departments and cram political correctness down their throats whether that actually improved crime rates or not.

    There MUST be a separation of state and federal authority in this country or our Constitution may as well be tossed on the junk heap. There also must be a separation of law enforcement functions and judicial functions. The judiciary is supposed to be one of the principle tools for keeping law enforcement in check but law enforcement has to be allowed to directly address crime issues in their jurisdiction. They can't operate effectively if their every move is subject to intense and overbearing scrutiny. If this kind of overreach keeps up we're going to turn the police departments into bureaucracies where nothing gets done and the citizens are the ones that will suffer.
    The problem is that this is not an isolated incident. The Baltimore PD has an institutional track record of "rough rides" spanning decades. The lawsuits stemming from these activities have cost the city tens of millions of dollars over the years and the people of Baltimore have been promised change since the 1980s. Now someone is dead and the PD must be dealt with. It is obvious that the city can't handle it so the Feds should be brought it.

    No. If the city can't handle it then the State should come in.
