How can this be about the Black Live Matter group only?

“Jeff Sessions Deals a Blow to Black Lives Matter”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a major policy change yesterday that will likely have broad and real consequences for people of color around the country. At a meeting of state attorneys general on Tuesday, Sessions said that the Justice Department would “pull back” on the federal scrutiny of police departments for civil rights violations against people of color.

“Rather than dictating to local police how to do their jobs, or spending scarce federal resources to sue them in court, we should use our money, research, and expertise to help them figure out what is happening and determine the best ways to fight crime,” Sessions said Tuesday.

Sessions is referring to the Obama-era policy of launching civil rights investigations into troubled police departments involved in the killings of unarmed minorities. The new attorney general was dismissive of police perpetrated shootings, even suggesting that viral videos—such as the ones showing the deaths of Philando Castile or Tamir Rice—were making life more difficult for police officers.”

    I’t would be nice to actually see the Feds take back a lot of the “Toys” from the local police departments (like MRAPS AND BEARCATS , MACHINE GUNS ETC.) that the Obama administration handed out like candy to them !!!
