Obama threatens city of Ferguson: Do what Justice Dept. says or get sued

President Obama fired a warning shot of sorts at the Ferguson Police Department, issuing an ultimatum: Submit to the Department of Justice or be sued.

“The city of Ferguson will now have to make a decision. Are they going to enter into some sort of agreement with the Justice Department to fix what is clearly a broken and racially biased system?” Obama told the crowd at a town-hall meeting at Benedict College in Columbia, S.C. . “Or if they don’t, then the Justice Department has the capacity to sue the city for violations of the rights of the people of Ferguson.”

If there’s one thing Obama believes, it’s that everything works better when the federal government is in control — and that includes local police departments.

    Ferguson should tell Obama to sue away. Then they should disband the police department. Then every one should start packing. Problem will fix it’s self in short order.

    I say the entire police force of Ferguson should come down with the “blue flu” for a few weeks so all can see how well Ferguson can get along without any police involvement. They won’t have to worry about any of the white cops killing their black citizens because they will all have killed each other.

    All Obamass accomplishes with this type of thinking is making police officers quit. My dad was a cop for many years and he, like most officers, just wanted to help keep their communities safe but if you keep putting more and more restrictions on how they are able to do that, then they will leave and you will have such a state of lawlessness, it will take the National Guard coming in and putting a stop to it. Then again, I believe this is Obamasses plan to begin with. If he can declare martial law, he’ll stay in the White House and we’ll never get rid of that POS!

    Attention: Police Dept. of the city of Ferguson
    Tell us where to send contributions for your defense fund.

    The Chief Rabble Rouser in the White House must be stopped! This man is not joking. He is using this as an excuse to take over local police departments and staff them with the hoodlums that have been in training for the past 6 years. Beware, Americans! One of Obama’s goals was to create a domestic army that was as well trained, funded, and equipped as the U.S. army. He has been shrinking the military to near nothing, while his goons are being trained. His next move will be to replace local police with his goons.

    Did anyone else notice that there was only 6 or 7 WHITES there???? And he says he will BRING us TOGETHER!! He is a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Josef Roesler says:

    The only people in Ferguson whose rights were violated were the victims of the hateful democrats who burned them down.

  7. flamengo1265 says:

    the irony is that if the DOJ sues and wins, the city would have to pay a fine. Anybody know the source of the money that would be used to pay that fine? That would be the tax revenue paid by the residents of Ferguson. The same people who are being “injured” by the Ferguson PD would be sending money to the DOJ.

    Since when has a President entered into the arena like this? Never. He is just as much of a race baiter as Al Sharpton. THEY both need to be sued.
