In Philadelphia Ramsey over saw the evisceration of constitutional rights as his officers illegally detained, arrested, harmed, and harassed those legally filming the police.
As co-chair, Obama appointed Laurie Robinson a professor of criminology, law and society at George Mason. What isn’t mentioned regarding Robinson is that she also represents law enforcement as former Assistant AG under Clinton and Bush.
