Sessions Strikes Back

Speaking to the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) in Atlanta, [AG Jeff] Sessions said he will “hold any officer responsible for breaking the law.”

“We all know the cases of the last several years where, in confrontations with police, lives have been cut short,” he said. “Just as I am committed to defending law enforcement who use deadly force while lawfully engaged in their work, I will also hold any officer responsible (for) breaking the law.”

He said all it takes is “one bad officer” to ruin the police’s reputation in a community they have worked “day in and day out to build relationships in.”

When Jeff Sessions talks about holding police officers responsible at a NOBLE meeting, you know Trump has gone too far. Unless of course, he was talking about simply holding black police officers responsible.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
