The actual evidence is painting a much different picture of the Michael Brown shooting by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer than the media narrative which stoked a week of riots and protests. That hasn’t deterred the Congressional Black Caucus from trying to turn the incident into a federal power grab. Politico reports:
Rep. Elijah Cummings, along with other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, sent a letter Monday to President Barack Obama, urging the administration to pursue changes to local law enforcement structure to “prevent more Fergusons,” including a federal czar to oversee local law enforcement.
“The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices,” the letter reads. “And identify the best policies and practices that can prevent more Fergusons and vastly improve policing in communities across the nation.”

The Democrat solution to every perceived problem is to abandon federalism. Addressing tyranny with more tyranny.
