Jeff Sessions, Trump's appointment for Attorney General, whose confirmation begins this week, was the first warning sign. Sessions, currently a senator from Alabama, was denied a federal appointment in 1986 for racist remarks—he once said he thought the KKK was OK until he found out they smoked pot. Last year he said, "good people don't smoke marijuana," on the senate floor. Now it's likely that he will be the top law enforcement officer in the country, in charge not only of deciding whether to reverse the Obama administration's decision not to enforce federal pot laws, but also all of the civil rights issues in cities like Baltimore, Cleveland, and Ferguson. His very appointment is a signal to cops that the Feds have their backs, especially when it comes to arresting minorities.
