From the NOT ENOUGH PUBLIC OUTCRY Files: Since he got herded into office, Jeff Sessions has been very busy enacting the Authoritarian Agenda and doing his best to turn the United States into a police state.
Two examples: Sessions declared that consent decrees would be rolled back. Including those for Baltimore and Ferguson. Now he wants to stop reviews of challenged evidence and verdicts.
These actions fit perfectly with authoritarianism; they don’t want guilty verdicts ever to be questioned. They also don’t want the police to ever be questioned or criticized – and that’s why Sessions recently ordered that all consent decrees be reviewed. He said it was “almost disrespectful” to review a police department’s actions and hold them responsible. This is as authoritarian – and anti-civil-rights – as any American administration has ever been.
This should scare the crap out of everyone, and yet it’s hardly getting any traction in the press.
