Newark Police To Be Monitored By Federal Watchdog

 

Who Polices The Police

 

” The Justice Department will place the Newark Police Department under a monitor later this year, the first time in state history that a municipal police agency will operate under a federal watchdog, according to four sources familiar with the situation.

  The decision follows a federal review of the way the state’s largest police force swept aside accusations of misconduct against hundreds of officers and its almost-total failure to address complaints of brutality and abuse lodged by Newark residents over the years.

  The investigation began in 2011, a year after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a scathing 96-page petition with the Department of Justice, accusing Newark’s police of rampant misconduct.

  The ACLU investigation found citizens filed 261 complaints with the department accusing officers of using excessive force, biased actions, improper searches or false arrests in 2008 and 2009. Only one complaint was sustained by the department.

  One officer faced 62 internal affairs investigations during a 14-year career, according to the petition, while Newark shelled out nearly $5 million in response to civil lawsuits from 2007 to 2009.”

 

Things must be bad if Eric Holder was forced to take action .

  In case you are unaware Mayor Booker had the audacity to hope that he could voice his own dissenting opinion regarding one of his party’s sacred cows . Mud raising and fund slinging , oops .
   He had the nerve to stray from the plantation by saying that a slanderous , erroneous  Bain ad was nauseating to him.
   His masters , having determined that he must atone had him make a second , briefer statement where he in fact re-iterated his early disgust .
   The overseers then took his second statement and edited it down to a brief soundbite to finally suit their purpose . As a result of Mr Booker having the effrontery to sleak his mind  the screaming tolerant hordes of the left have opted for filicide .
