Jeff Sessions is not likely to stop the police war on minorities and the poor

If you have money, or affluence, or fame, your issues get addressed. If you’re poor and nameless—they don’t. There are a great many factors driving violence in places like South Chicago. There’s a lack of jobs, gangs, guns, despair, hopelessness, poverty, as well as police indifference and corruption. Where there’s money, problems get solved—but time and time again the poor pay a price which they can scarcely afford.

Exactly what Sessions or Trump will do to help this problem in any effective way remains unclear. Both of them seem more than willing to fear-monger over the issue, using completely faulty facts and data at the drop of a hat, rather than work to construct any meaningful solutions.
