Ferguson Not Alone in Attracting Justice Department Ire

March 05, 2015  | 

It's likely that the Ferguson (Mo.) Police Department will soon be operating under a consent decree or some other version of federal monitoring.

This week CNN produced a quick look at other agencies that have been investigated by the Department of Justice and are under court-ordered monitoring or other remedy for what the DOJ has identified as abuses.

The report includes information on what is happening in Cleveland; East Haven, Conn.; Missoula County, Mont.; New Orleans; Albuquerque; and Newark. McCLatchyDC also produced a report that includes details on DOJ actions in Newark; Portland, Ore.; and Seattle.

What ever happened to minding your own business? Seems to me the Feds have enough housekeeping to take care of without meddling where they are not wanted or needed.

Who is investigating/monitoring the DOJ for Fast &Furious? Oops! The DOJ is exempt!

If the Feds don't poke their noses in where it does not belong and is not needed or wanted ... they would have to tend to their own "houses". And those are filled to the rafters with corruption and evil.

Guess I missed the boat on this one. If an area is almost entirely black doesn't it make sense that those pulled over or arrested would primarily be black. It isn't like there was a black guy committing a robbery and a white guy committing a robbery and only the black guy was arrested. I can see an issue with that. I arrest primarily all white people because that is the majority of my population. Oh crap, I must be prejudiced against white people.
