This is a perfect example of how Trump, et. al -- in this case, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, Attorney General-like Person -- sling bullshit and call it prime rib.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions will end a Justice Department partnership with independent scientists to raise forensic science standards and has suspended an expanded review of FBI testimony across several techniques that have come under question, saying a new strategy will be set by an in-house team of law enforcement advisers.
... “The availability of prompt and accurate forensic science analysis to our law enforcement officers and prosecutors is critical to integrity in law enforcement, reducing violent crime, and increasing public safety,” Sessions said in the statement... (My emphasis)In other words, from now on we'll be the ones deciding what constitutes factual forensic science. Because, you know, that review stuff just slows down the process, especially by scientists who know what they're doing. Quick and crappy science is better than resolute and reviewable. Get those perpetrators in (private) prisons, guilty or not.
Sessions is also rolling back any efforts to make the "war on drugs" more rational because mass incarcerations have done so well to win the battle. And he's backing off the Justice Department's role in looking at troubled police departments around the country. By "troubled," I mean ones currently under scrutiny for bad policing. By "bad policing" I mean racism.
Kind of a trifecta, really: go after weed again, lock up the coloreds, and we'll decide what evidence is.
Hard to say which of Trump's appointees will do the most damage, but Sessions and Pruitt are strong candidates for the top slot.
