Looks like the U.S. Justice Department is getting itchy and nervous about Ferguson.

We all remember the wild rioting and militarized police right?

The JD wants to force a complete changeover of the police and court system in Ferguson.

Ferguson leaders have been "negotiating" some kind of settlement, but apparently they have gone over the edge of acceptance and the JD isn't happy.

What will this lead into I wonder?

JD Ferguson

The Justice Department is suing the city of Ferguson in an attempt to forcibly overhaul the city’s troubled police and court operations, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Wednesday.

The decision comes hours after city leaders sought to revise a long- negotiated settlement, citing prohibitive costs of executing such a deal.

“There is no cost for constitutional policing,'' Lynch said late Wednesday.

Must be a government experiment on several levels

Ferguson is not the only place with problems.

SO the DOJ is suing because they can't PROVE anything criminal done either by the city or the police.

Par for the course from the Department of INJUSTICE.

Sue the operative word there.

It's a perfect test market.

I think so too.

The current administration by proxy using it's Gestapo the DOJ and Lynch is willfully violating the 9th, and 10th amendments rights of Mo. because it didn't like the outcome because the 'people' failed to prove their case against that officer.

Amendment IX The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X 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.

Due process was followed, and under a jury of peers the case was never made.

Which is why now they are 'suing'.

Ah, the tenth amendment.

What a commonly forgotten aspect of our constitution.
