AG Sessions Border Rant

Update: Sessions may have been misquoted.

Simply unacceptable comments by Jefferson Sessions. Pretty soon I will refuse to preface his name with the words "Attorney General." He doesn't deserve the respect that has traditionally accompanied the title.

He also returned to a common theme from the Trump campaign by saying drug cartels and criminal gangs are turning American cities into “war zones” by raping and killing innocent people.

“It is here, on this sliver of land, where we first take our stand against this filth,” he said.

I wonder how many AUSA's will have the courage to quit and refuse to be part of implementing Sessions' and Trump's filthy agenda.

    He Also Has Ended Forensic Science Board (none / 0) (#1)

    The Justice Department will not renew the National Commission on Forensic Science, a panel of judges, defense attorneys, researchers and law enforcement officials that had been advising the attorney general on the use of scientific evidence in the criminal justice process. The department will instead appoint an in-house adviser and create an internal committee to study improvements to forensic analysis, Sessions said.
     Link.  Getting the opinions of people outside the Justice Department is a bad idea?

    is a bad idea, when it intrudes on preconceived notions about the guilt of all those who are arrested.

    thinking. The GOP in general does not like science so this is just an extension of their belief system.

    What? To Gulags? This was the most disturbing line in the story "He chided critics of mass incarceration and the decline in the prison population." What the eff? This country is so doomed.
