Oh, Lookie-Lookie: Obama & AG Lynch Advocate for Fed Oversight of Local Police
What a shock?
It’s as if the entire #MikeBrown #HandsUp Ferguson-Baltimore protests and riots were one big astroturf movement.
It was always about more government control.
Today Barack Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch called for more federal oversight of local police.

The Washington Times reported:
Her plate is full, with challenges such as investigating massive cyberattacks against the U.S. and handling simmering tensions between police departments and minority communities that have erupted in violence, such as in Baltimore earlier this year.
She pledged “to preserve our national security and our cherished liberties, to make safe the world of cyberspace, to end the scourge of modern-day slavery, and [to] confront the very nature of our citizens’ relationship with those of us entrusted to protect and to serve.”…
…President Obama, who attended the ceremony at the Warner Theater, said the nation has no greater advocate for equality under the law than Ms. Lynch.
“She understands the importance of policing, and improving relationships between law enforcement and communities,” Mr. Obama said. “She went on a six-city tour to spotlight the challenges of community policing and the progress that’s being made. She understands the importance of criminal justice reform, that we have to be smart on crime, not just tough.”
