Exclamation Trump administration steps in to kill police-reform plan

CHICAGO (AP) — The Trump administration informed a federal judge in Chicago on Friday that it's seeking to scuttle a plan negotiated between the nation's third-largest city and the state of Illinois that envisions far-reaching reforms of Chicago's 12,000-officer police force under close federal court supervision.

According to Jeff Sessions, it's not police abuse of power that's the problem, but rather the ACLU "tying law enforcement's hands behind their backs" by requiring court oversight and curbing stop-and-frisk procedures.

Since Trump complained about why the police worry about not bashing a prisoner's head when loading them into a police car, and Sessions is a neanderthal, it's exactly what I expected from them.
