Barack Obama continues to attack our police.
But now he has moved beyond just smearing them as racists and flat out claims they are hunting down innocent black men.
The next step in his agenda has been revealed, and it will have consequences on every street in America.
The United Nations is teaming up with Obama to support a federal takeover of our police forces.
Obama hopes to destroy local control of law enforcement and create a system where every cop in America is accountable to the federal government.
Lifezette reports on the United Nations support of Obama’s federal takeover on the police:
“The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice has provided oversight and recommendations for improvement of police services in a number of cities with consent decrees. This is one of the most effective ways to reduce discrimination in law enforcement and it needs to be beefed up and increased to cover as many of the 18,000-plus local law enforcement jurisdictions.”
That was United Nations Rapporteur Maina Kai on July 27, a representative of the U.N. Human Rights Council, who on the tail-end of touring the U.S., endorsed a little-known and yet highly controversial practice by the Justice Department to effect a federal takeover of local police and corrections departments.
The consent decrees are already being implemented in Newark, New Jersey; Miami, Florida; Los Angeles, California; Ferguson, Missouri; Chicago, Illinois; and other municipalities.
Here’s how it works: the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice files a lawsuit in federal court against a city, county, or state, alleging constitutional and civil rights violations by the police or at a corrections facility. It is done under 42 U.S.C. § 14141, a section of the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, granting the attorney general the power to prosecute law enforcement misconduct. The municipality then simply agrees to the judicial finding — without contest — and the result is a wide-reaching federal court order that imposes onerous regulations on local police.
The federal court orders are designed to undo Rudy Giuliani-style policing tactics that were effective at reducing crime in big cities in the 1990s and 2000s.”
The consent decrees force local law enforcement to work under onerous federal regulations.
And with the Obama administration wrapping its arms around the anti-police Black Lives Matter movement, some fear the police will now operate as if strapped in a straight jacket by the supporters who call for officers to be killed.
In the wake of the Black Lives Matter riots in Ferguson, the FBI has warned of a chilling effect where police will become afraid to take action out of fear of being the next target of left-wing mobs.
If Obama’s Department of Justice continues to federalize the police, many critics contend this could lead to an unsafe environment because police will be unable to perform their jobs due to federal regulations.
Lifezette reports on what Americans for Limited Government’s, Rick Manning, wrote to sum up the issue:
“As Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning noted in a statement calling attention to the U.N.’s interest in the DOJ program and urging Congress to act, “The fact that the U.N. Human Rights Council — which includes some of the worst abusers of human rights in the world that hate the U.S. — is cheering for this DOJ national takeover of the police should tell members everything they need to know. It’s time to support local police, not render them impotent via federal restrictions against maintaining law and order. No less than the very existence of local government is at stake.”
Will criminals run wild in the streets if Obama succeeds in seizing control of local law enforcement?
