Justice Department launches gun
'strike forces' in five major cities

Original Article

The Biden Justice Department is deploying gun trafficking “strike forces” to Washington and four other major cities this week, part of a push to contain a recent national surge in violent crime. Attorney General Merrick B. Garland will visit Chicago Thursday afternoon to launch the strike forces, which will also be set up in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. The units will share information and coordinate the prosecution of gun crimes across multiple jurisdictions. They are part of President Biden’s Violent Crime Reduction Initiative announced last month in response to an uptick in violent crimes across the country, particularly shootings and homicides.


Does the united states have an opposition party, or is it all a joke? There are countless (tens of thousands?) federal gun laws already on the books, but the federal government refuses to prosecute them so that we can have more "gun crime." Is Merrick the weasel looking to start up Fast and Furious 2.0? May as well; the first one went off without a hitch.

The gun strike force is under attack in Baltimore after it was found that members were planting firearms on subjects to get convictions. One man was just let out of prison after serving a number of years of a 20 year sentence after it was found that a gun was planted in his vehicle by the task force. How it was determined that a gun was planted, I don't know. Maybe one of the task force members came clean.

This will have about as much success stoping violent street crime as the “war on drugs” did in stopping overdose deaths.. Nothing will change unless something is done about the actual “root cause“ of the idiocy, ignorance & violence permeating our society today. The greatest single predictor of future anti-social, criminal & violent behavior among young men of ALL RACES is: FATHERLESSNESS Say it’s name! *************** (And guess which political party has been on a mission to facilitate & fund fatherlessness with OUR TAX DOLLARS for over half a century now.

The last thing that they're going to do is stop and frisk urban yoots. Guns in the hands of rural white men is what they really fear. White men who are willing to fight for their liberty is what they really mean when they say White Supremacists. Black's shooting each other is just another form of abortion.

National Communist Police Force is born. Where the Hell are the Republicans? Has money been appropriated by Congress to fund this thinly disguised gun confiscation Gestapo? Doesn't this money being spent require the consent of Congress? Trump needs to speak out against this and every other gutless cowardly Republican holding office in our country needs to stand up and do the same.

You have to wonder if they will be deployed where most of the shooting is going on. It's probably safer for the gun trafficking “strike forces” to deploy in a NRA neighborhood.

This same BS happened under Sparklefarts. Second City Cop, before it got cancelled by its online provider, used to chronicle their activities. Mostly, the feebs sat around in their cars well outside the normal free fire zones and filled out reports during the day. At night, when most of the shooting was going down, they were back in their hotels in the burbs and nowhere to be seen. This is just so Groot and the rest of the black mayors can pay some lip service to their ghettos. Nothing comes of this at all.

Homeland Security Department officials on Friday officially canceled contracts for 31 miles of border wall construction that had been planned for Texas, saying the barriers were “not necessary” to save lives or help the environment. Construction hadn’t started on the two segments, and the federal government hadn’t yet acquired new land that would have been necessary to build the wall there, the department said. President Trump left office with about $2 billion in congressionally allocated wall money unspent, though most of the money had been earmarked and put under contract. Friday’s decision marks the first cancellation of those projects. The Biden administration said it’s part of a broad review

At least 270,000 migrants have sneaked into the U.S. and burrowed into communities across the country so far this fiscal year, according to the latest Border Patrol data. Agents know them as “gotaways” who represent an acute national security risk, according to the head of the National Sheriffs’ Association’s border security committee. Unlike the migrant children who often surrender to border authorities and the migrants who are caught and screened before release, gotaways sneak through the country’s defenses without any look into their criminal histories. The Border Patrol is missing about 1,100 of them a day, said Sheriff Mark Dannels of Cochise County, Arizona, who got his numbers directly

A federal judge blocked a West Virginia law banning transgender athletes from competing in girls sports, saying the legislation likely runs afoul of the Constitution. Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, a Clinton appointee, said if West Virginia wants to treat people differently, there must be a compelling reason to do so. “I have been provided with scant evidence that this law addresses any problem at all, let alone an important problem,” the judge wrote in a 15-page opinion. West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Republican, signed the Save Women’s Sports bill in April. The legislation requires the state’s public schools to allow biological females only to compete in girls sports.

They can’t stand other opinions. They can’t. They cannot be allowed to live. The people who hold them must be targeted and smeared. All must bow before the unholy altar of American progressivism. If you can’t convince them, destroy them, or deprogram them. That’s what The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson and Nikole Hannah-Jones wanted yesterday. Grabien’s Tom Elliott clipped the madness. People who support Trump are mentally defective, so they must be deprogrammed. What does that mean? Sounds Stalinist in the extreme. It also reeks of Chinese Cultural Revolution underpinnings.

Authorities in Texas have begun arresting illegal immigrants along the U.S.-Mexico border on trespassing charges, according to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who has blamed the Biden administration for the surge in illegal immigration and has put in motion his own border security plan to crack down on illegal crossings. “Texas has begun arresting illegal immigrants who are trespassing in Texas or vandalizing property & fences. They are now being sent to this jail rather than being released like the Biden Admin. has been doing. We are adding more officers, National Guard & jails,” Abbott said in a tweet Thursday.
