Loretta Lynch: Federal Government Must ‘Hold Police Accountable’

15 January 2017 Brietbart Law Enforcement

“You’ve got to hold police accountable, you’ve got to help them hold themselves accountable, and you’ve got to build in community accountability,” she told the Associated Press in an interview published Saturday.

Lynch also said that relationships between the Justice Department and local law enforcement had improved.

Her comments come a day after the Justice Department released a scathing report on the Chicago Police Department’s civil rights violations, the Hill reported.

Lynch, who was sworn in as attorney general in April 2015, took charge during a period where there was much criticism about police practices in black communities, and she made it a department priority to go after civil rights violations.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for attorney general, plans to change the focus of the Justice Department to highlight issues such as national security and immigration.

Lynch’s tenure as attorney general has been marked by massacres by violent extremists, hacking attempts from overseas, and an election season investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Lynch also drew criticism for an unplanned meeting with Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac in Phoenix.

    She is a joke….. here is a copy of Trump’s latest tweet…….proof that she was a failure.

    Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S. I can use all the help I can get

    How about holding criminals responsible for their poor choices and crimes you stupid cow!!!!

  • EarnitYourself

    She sees her job as to police the police? Who polices her organization?

    “Lynch also drew criticism for an unplanned meeting with Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac in Phoenix.”. She should’ve drawn criminal charges. Bill too.

    Unplanned my ass. He walks across a secured tarmac and boards a plane with a manifest of names of those on board? She has to grant permission for her security to allow someone to board. If that wasn’t premeditated, she should have said “Tell him it would be inappropriate to meet, given the pending decision whether or not to charge his wife in three days.”

    As I watch the media create fake news to crucify Trump with, while watching them sweep stuff like this under the rug, it is infuriating.
