DOJ watchdog says that delays by the office of Attorney General William Barr hampered the Bureau of Prisons’ ability to combat the threat of drones. The AG only finalized guidance on counter-drone measures after receiving a draft of the IG report. oig.justice.gov/sites/default/…
"We believe the absence of official guidance in this matter hindered the ability of DOJ components such as the BOP to discern the parameters of their authority and identify instances where it would be appropriate to request approval of drone counter-measures.”
Here’s the memo William Barr issued on drones in April, after he received the DOJ IG’s initial report that was set to knock him for inaction. justice.gov/ag/page/file/1…

The majority of Fox News viewers believe that Joe Biden — who has explicitly stated that he wants to "get police more money" and whose support for the COPS program helped put thousands of officers on the street — actually wants to defund the police.
Throughout his career, Biden has supported giving cops more money. It was somewhat of an issue for him in the primary! Yet Fox News viewers, disconnected from reality, believe he now holds a position wholly antithetical to the view he’s had for decades. abcnews.go.com/Politics/joe-b…
I’m old enough to remember when the Fraternal Order of Police had to convince the Trump administration not to defund the police. huffpost.com/entry/cops-fun…

NEW: an elected prosecutor has resigned his role on Trump’s presidential commission on law enforcement, worried that its final report — which is due days before the election — “will only widen the divisions in our nation.” huffpost.com/entry/trump-la…
John Choi says he worries that Trump’s law enforcement commission is set to “vilify local prosecutors who exercise their well settled prosecutorial discretion consistent with their community’s values and the interests of justice.” huffpost.com/entry/trump-la…
“Every prosecutor who’s elected in America should have that discretion and they should have an obligation and responsibility to think about what their communities want and apply those policies. There’s nothing wrong with that.” huffpost.com/entry/trump-la…

NEW: Attorney General William Barr calls Michael Forest Reinoehl "a dangerous fugitive, admitted Antifa member, and suspected murderer.” huffpost.com/entry/portland…
I’d note that the DOJ press release on charges against two Boogaloo supporters in the killing of a federal security officer did not include a quote from the attorney general.

Nor did it mention the term “Boogaloo.” Just mentioned an “extremist ideology."

DOJ gave their latest Boogaloo case a proper headline. justice.gov/opa/pr/two-sel…

A U.S. Marshals Service spokesperson says they won’t release the names of the deputy marshals who killed Michael Forest Reinoehl until the conclusion of all investigations. huffpost.com/entry/portland…
Like other Justice Department components, the U.S. Marshals Service has a very opaque internal affairs system. huffpost.com/entry/doj-tran…
The U.S. Marshals Service fails to hold officers accountable for misconduct in a timely fashion, even when the facts are crystal clear. huffpost.com/entry/doj-tran…

NEW: The Portsmouth police sergeant who charged a Virginia state senator and civil rights leaders with felonies was under investigation for a heated letter he sent to city officials blasting those he’d later charge: huffpost.com/entry/portsmou…
Portsmouth Police Chief Angela Greene referred Sgt. Kevin McGee’s letter to internal affairs. Then she let him charge those he’d attacked with felonies, and let him stand behind her at a press conference. huffpost.com/entry/portsmou…
Sgt. Kevin McGee, who faced multiple internal affairs complaints, was a vocal opponent of Tonya Chapman, the first Black female police chief in the entire state of Virginia. huffpost.com/entry/portsmou…

NEW: Civil Rights Division alums tell me they’re really alarmed by what they see as DOJ’s political targeting of four Democratic governors: huffpost.com/entry/coronavi…
DOJ asserted in a press release, without citing any evidence, that state orders “may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents.”

That’s a bold and highly questionable claim, and one that DOJ will never be able to back up.
huffpost.com/entry/coronavi…
Here’s why. CRIPA, the law DOJ is citing here, only applies to PUBLIC nursing homes (think: veteran’s homes) which only represent a small sliver of America’s nursing homes. There are only like 1,300 public nursing home residents in all of Pennsylvania. huffpost.com/entry/coronavi…
