SESSIONS: OBAMA-ERA DOJ TO BLAME FOR CHICAGO, NATIONWIDE CRIME SPIKES

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday blamed the Obama administration for crime increases in Chicago and other large cities, saying the deals the Justice Department cut ended up tying the hands of police officers.

Mr. Sessions said his predecessors at the department pushed “disastrous” consent decrees with communities, putting new restrictions on how police could carry out their duties.

Nowhere was that more apparent, he said, than in Chicago, where the police department signed an agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union and “radical activists” which took effect in 2016 — and the murder rate soared.

He said 765 people were murdered that year in the city, compared to an average of 454 people a year over the decade before the consent decree was adopted.

“That means 311 Chicagoans — friends, neighbors, moms, dads — were killed in 2016 who might still be alive if the murder rate stayed at the 10-year average,” Mr. Sessions said.

The remarks were part of a surprise visit Mr. Sessions’ made to the Chicago Police Department to study how it uses technology to fight crime.

Mr. Sessions has long been a critic of consent decrees. Last year, he ordered the Justice Department to review all existing consent decrees between local police departments and the federal government.

Chicago is not the only city to be impacted by a consent decree, the attorney general said. Since a consent decree was adopted in Baltimore, following the death of Freddie Gray in the back of a police van, homicides in that city have increased by 62.5 percent, Mr. Sessions said. In addition, rapes more than tripled and car theft and aggravated assault went up by a third, according to the attorney general.

“The proof is in,” Mr. Sessions said. “It can no longer be denied: disrespect and lack of support for police officers has real world consequences.”

Indeed, Mr Sessions...............the proof is in.

When filthy “militia” are allowed to roam federal land....with their automatic weapons......while keeping our brave, and gloriously jack-booted federal agents, at bay...........Mr Sessions is certainly correct.

Pres. B Hussein should have given the order to eliminate the “militia.”....shame on him for sitting back and watching that scum while they. dirtied federal land with their presence.

However, I would like to thank NYC cops (the good ones), and President B. Hussein (peace be unto him), and ultra-left Mayor Billy De for historically low murder rates in my beautiful hometown.
