Congressional Black Caucus Demands Nationwide Crackdown on Law Enforcement


The Congressional Black Caucus is demanding Attorney General Loretta Lynch take action to prevent police shootings of violent and threatening black men.

This comes after the latest police shootings in Tulsa and Charlotte. The Congressional Black Caucus also hope voters don’t examine their devastating record.

The Washington Examiner reported:

The Congressional Black Caucus is demanding that Attorney General Loretta Lynch immediately take action to prevent police killings with a nationwide crackdown on law enforcement.

“The world is watching and we cannot continue to ignore these killings,” said Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., presenting the letter to the media Thursday while the entire caucus stood in support outside the Department of Justice.

The Congressional Black Caucus’ letter urges Lynch to “aggressively pursue investigations, indictments and prosecutions through the Office of Civil Rights against any and all law enforcement officers who harm or kill innocent unarmed black men, women and children.

“No American should have to fear the people sworn to protect them,” said Congressional Black Caucus PAC chair Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y. Meeks said that despite the violence, civil rights icon Martin Luther King would have similarly called for action in the face of alleged racial profiling by police.
