What effect would less scrutiny of police have on the death rate of Americans in police encounters?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions suggested that the Justice Department would pursue fewer federal investigations of troubled police departments, adding that too much federal scrutiny on police departments could cause officers to be less effective in crime fighting according to recent reports. NAACP President Cornell William Brooks says those changes are troubling. He says they “imply a disturbing departure” from the Justice Department’s enforcement of civil rights laws.

What’s Your Take? What effect would less scrutiny of police have on the death rate of Americans in police encounters?

I know that most officers are good people and serve well.Less scrutiny will allow the bad apples to abuse at will.

Really Tanya? Handcuffing police allows the bad guys to win.

Sessions is dangerous and bold enough to admit that human and voting rights will be limited for African Americans

This administration believes Black Lives Don't Matter (except Ben and Omarosa)

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund should take this to the Supreme Court

I agree adversely, but just as relevant is the point you made last week about the prison industrial complex and the need for profit on the backs of our young Black Males.21st Century Slavery.
