In one of the first acts of his presidency, B Hussein Obama stuck his nose and ears into a local event with little knowledge, jumped to conclusions based upon his bias and made an ass out of himself (an event that would repeat itself over the next 8 years). With little knowledge of the event, he complained that his fellow race baiter was mistreated by the cops when a neighbor called about a possible burglar.
My understanding is that Professor Gates then shows his I.D. to show that this is his house and, at that point, he gets arrested for disorderly conduct, charges which are later dropped," Obama said.
"I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that [Gates case]. But I think it's fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That's just a fact."
Gotta say, you did say something correct, ""I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts...'
Fast forward a few years later and Obama and his "Just-Us" department are working to target cops doing their jobs. Darren Wilson justifiably shot the thug Michael Brown. After the incident, Wilson lost his career, he and his family are now in hiding and we have terrorist groups like Black Lives Matter going after cops and their families. In reaction, Congress passed legislation for a "Blue Alert" system. Well...
Obama Administration Still Hasn’t Implemented Alert System to Protect Police, 15 Months After It Passed Congress
Following the Dec. 20, 2014, ambush murders of New York Police Department Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, police officers and their supporters called upon Congress and the Obama administration to take action to help reduce the likelihood of similar events occurring in the future.
A clarion call was struck for Congress to enact the Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu National Blue Alert Act of 2015, a nationwide infrastructure of alert systems similar to the type employed in a variety of states throughout the country.
Much like the Amber Alert or Silver Alert systems, which inform the public of incidents of child abductions and missing or at-risk elderly individuals, respectively, the Blue Alert system was meant to alert members of the law enforcement community to threats seen as particularly important for the safety of police officers nationwide.
The hope was to allow information to be disseminated quickly enough that officers could protect themselves against oncoming threats.
Surprisingly, unlike a majority of ideas floating around Congress, support for a nationwide Blue Alert system was near universal and the legislation breezed through both houses of congress on a voice vote.
The Obama administration swiftly signed the bill into law on May 19, 2015—less than six months from the date of the murders of (New York Police Officers) Liu and Ramos....
...Now, more than a year after the Blue Alert Act was signed into law, it continues to languish in a sea of bureaucratic inaction, without implementation.
And while the Obama administration dithers on getting the Blue Alert system in place and active, more and more police officers find themselves at risk and the target of an emboldened criminal element.
Why the hesitation or indecisiveness on the part of the Obama administration in implementing the Blue Alert system? How has it taken so long to enact a system that has otherwise been in use for years in 27 states and counting?
This time, the answer may not surprise you.
According to a statement provided to USA Today, the Obama Justice Department claimed it had taken over a year to merely determine which office within the DOJ should be responsible for implementing the program.
We can never know for certain whether a fully functioning Blue Alert system could have prevented a single police officer’s death since the bill was passed last year—in fact, a Blue Alert system was already in place in Texas at the time of the July 7 sniper attack that claimed the lives of five Dallas-area police officers.
But in an era of heightened anti-police rhetoric and ever ubiquitous violent attacks against the men and women of law enforcement, the Obama administration has no excuse but to make the full implementation of a nationwide Blue Alert system an absolute priority....
In all fairness, this is the group that took over 4 years and over a trillion dollars and couldn't make a website work, so efficiency and ability are not strong points for the Obama regime. The fact police deaths by firearm have soared 72% this year and are up 14% overall is not a concern of this administration or its supporters. But with a new president and a very law enforcement supportive attorney general coming in, we should have some hope for the future.
