…The Justice Department did not …[provide] clarification on who specifically Barr was referring to when he mentioned “communities.” [mmhmmmph]
…In August, Barr told the Fraternal Order of Police ― the country’s largest police organization ― that there should be “zero tolerance for resisting police.” The attorney …[accused local prosecutors] of making police officers’ jobs more difficult …[with] more progressive approaches to criminal cases.
“There is another development that is demoralizing to law enforcement and dangerous to public safety,” Barr said in his August speech. “That is the emergence in some of our large cities of district attorneys that style themselves as ‘social justice’ reformers, who spend their time undercutting the police, letting criminals off the hook and refusing to enforce the law.” [mmhmph]
