Sessions orders nationwide review of police reform decrees including Seattle’s

“They can’t undo the consent decree in Seattle,” City Attorney Pete Holmes was reading Sessions’ memo last night.
Holmes had a variety of reactions. He noted the timing of Sessions’ memo. “It is just like his ‘sanctuary cities’ pronouncement last week, coming on a day of bad news for the Trump administration,” said Holmes. (The news broke last night of a secret meeting seeking to establish a back channel between Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.)
As to Sessions’ memo, said Holmes: “It is filled with unassailable platitudes about public safety and officer safety. It seems to me that their more immediate target is the consent decree in Baltimore.” -Joel Connelley, Seattle PI
