A liberal cop hating mayor asks the liberal cop hating and biased DOJ to investigate the police in a city that the liberal mayor and the liberal cop hating DA turned into a murder savaged jungle and the liberal cop hating and biased DOJ found problems with the police. Makes perfect sense to me.
Thanks from caconservative

The report, which covered data from 2010 to 2016 and was obtained Tuesday by CNN, attributed the widespread practices to "systemic deficiencies" in training, policies, supervision and accountability structures.
Among the investigation's findings:
• African-Americans accounted for 95% of 410 individuals stopped at least 10 times from 2010 to 2016
• One African-American man in his 50s was stopped 30 times in less than four years; none of the stops resulted in a citation or criminal charge
• African-Americans accounted for 82% of all BPD vehicle stops though they make up 60% of the driving age population in the city and 27% percent of the driving age population in the greater metropolitan area
• BPD officers found contraband twice as often when searching white individuals compared to African-Americans during vehicle stops and 50% more often during pedestrian stops

Another example where a DOJ examiner rode with a BPD officer on a routine shift. At one point the officer stopped the car and told a patrolman to break up a group of young black guys chatting at a street corner. When the patrolman questioned the order asking "What reason should I give them?" The BPD officer (with the DOJ guy sitting next to him) said "Make something up."

Gather round, children. This is going to be good.
Possibilities: Hillary somehow OWNS the DOJ? Is blackmailing the DOJ? Has hypnotized the DOJ?? Bill and Loretta Lynch are having a torrid affair? Hillary and Lynch are having a torrid affair?? A flaming HOT threesome??
ok, so are you saying that Marilyn Mosby is a conservative?
Thanks from Jimmyb and caconservative

Hmm, a report 2-weeks after charges against the officers were dropped. Isn't it funny the Loretta Lynch and the DOJ can find fault there, but none in what was clearly a criminal email scandal with Hillary. All too suspect.

Nothing should come out of it unless the police made public statements and the statements were notarized stating that they intended to violate the civil rights of blacks to demonstrate intent. That is the Hillary Clinton Doctrine established by the DOJ and FBI.
