Attorney General Jeff Sessions restated his opposition to agreements made between the Justice Department and a number of police departments during the Obama administration on Thursday, saying that the consent decree agreements “can reduce the morale of police officers.”
“I do share your concern that these investigations and consent decrees have the, can turn bad,” Sessions told radio host Howie Carr, in an interview surfaced by CNN. “They can reduce morale of the police officers.
I suppose everyone who loses a court case might have some low morale issues to deal with… but isn’t the larger point that someone is being held accountable for their actions? I suppose the people injured and/or killed by the cops might have some morale issues of their own, too/also.
