Advocates unconstitutional expansion of federal government
by Kurt Nimmo, Infowars:
During a press conference on the sidelines of a NATO conference in Warsaw, Poland on Saturday, Obama said he will “start moving on constructive actions” to federalize state and local police. He will meet next week with the White House task force set up after Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Missouri. The task force authored the “President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing Report” last May.
The report is controversial because it advocates the unconstitutional expansion of the federal government into local law enforcement. The role of the federal government is governed by Posse Comitatus and the Tenth Amendment, the latter stating the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
In addition to creating “a Law Enforcement Diversity Initiative designed to help communities diversify law enforcement departments to reflect the demographics of the community,” the report calls for the establishment of “programs that take a comprehensive and inclusive look at community-based initiatives that address the core issues of poverty, education, health, and safety,” socialist initiatives beyond the scope of law enforcement.
In April, 53 police departments signed on to the recommendations, specifically the Police Data Initiative, a federal program designed to train local police on how to gather and use data to “increase transparency, build community trust and support innovation,” according to the White House.
