The DOJ is wrong

The DOJ says something about Chicago cops:
The Justice Department announced today that it has found reasonable cause to believe that the Chicago Police Department (CPD) engages in a pattern or practice of using force, including deadly force, in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. The department found that CPD officers’ practices unnecessarily endanger themselves and result in unnecessary and avoidable uses of force. The pattern or practice results from systemic deficiencies in training and accountability, including the failure to train officers in de-escalation and the failure to conduct meaningful investigations of uses of force.
The city of Chicago and the Justice Department have signed an agreement in principle to work together, with community input, to create a federal court-enforceable consent decree addressing the deficiencies found during the investigation.
“One of my highest priorities as Attorney General has been to ensure that every American enjoys police protection that is lawful, responsive, and transparent,” said Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. “Sadly, our thorough investigation into the Chicago Police Department found that far too many residents of this proud city have not received that kind of policing. The resulting deficit in trust and accountability is not just bad for residents – it’s also bad for dedicated police officers trying to do their jobs safely and effectively. With this announcement, we are laying the groundwork for the difficult but necessary work of building a stronger, safer, and more united Chicago for all who call it home.”

What they really mean is that the taxpayers of Chicago are perfectly fine with blunt force cops for one simple reason. is cheaper to understand them than to pay for more educated cops.  The DOJ has no clue about assets and liabilities in this case,they have no smooth surface to price the current set up.

For example, this DOJ report implies more federal dollars headed to Chicago.  But the DOJ fails to mention that involves a stampede of cops unions from around the nation rushing to DC.  If you have Texas cops going for welfare, you will be broke in the Swamp.

Then further in the report we get the sop to Lynch and her racist policies, blaming black violence for raising policing costs.
