Obama Federalizes Police Forces in 6 US Cities
The cities chosen for the COPS pilot program are Minneapolis, Fort Worth, Pittsburgh, Stockton, Birmingham and Gary, IN.
As mentioned by Obama’s 21st Century Policing Task Force, the founding premise for this federal takeover is supposedly the rampant racism of the American police, who victimize poor, innocent populations for no other reason than color. Gary is a city with an 83% black population; only ten percent of its citizens are white; the demographics of Gary are just further evidence of the fallacy of this take over. Gary is a crime-riddled, liberal stronghold, eager to prove to the Big Brother Obama that they are in need of federal oversight and a big fat check. Their federal handout amounts to $4.7 million, supposedly to provide training as well as dictate policy and fund the perpetual black hole of research, into the issue of distrust between citizens and law enforcement.
And so, the Administration which was supposedly best equipped to heal race relations, continues to create rancor to divide and conquer Americans.
