Obama is gone. Trump is the new sheriff in town…
Now that the new U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been sworn into office, President Trump has at the same time moved forward in his fight against protecting law enforcement around the nation as they protect us. He has signed three new executive orders that would put the teeth back into law enforcement…Something that Obama would NEVER do, and in fact, incited hate and division whenever there was a police shooting. The facts didn’t matter to Obama, he just went ahead and passed judgment in the public court of opinion.
That changes now.
One of the orders from President Trump’s office sends a devastating message to Black Lives Matter…
This past Wednesday, President Donald Trump addressed a crowd made up of America’s police chiefs and sheriffs from all over the nation, all from Major County Sheriff’s Association and Major Cities Chiefs Association. “Zero tolerance” was the theme that the President had in mind and he shared that policy as a way to fight back against the violence perpetrated on the nation’s law enforcement officers and deputies.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal, one of the executive orders introduces a task force that will be federally available, aimed at reducing crime in high-crime cities like Chicago. It sounds like a great plan, though I hope that these task forces are made up of local law enforcement, for local problems. There is no better nor efficient way than that.
The other order jump starts the capabilities of both the Justice Department and Homeland Security to fight back against crime cartels.
Trump went on to say. “Today’s ceremony should be seen as a clear message to the gang members and drug dealers terrorizing innocent people. Your day is over. A new era of justice begins, and it begins right now.”
Let’s hope for a smooth transition, and more importantly, a successful plan that accomplishes these tasks.
