OPERATION LEGEND EXPANDS: More Federal Agents Being Sent to Cleveland, Milwaukee

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.29.20

The Department of Justice is expanding its ‘Operation Legend’ program in the coming days; deploying more federal agents to Cleveland, Detroit, and Milwaukee to help crack down on rising crime statistics and protect federal property.

“The most basic responsibility of government is to protect the safety of our citizens,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement. “Today, we have extended Operation Legend to Cleveland, Detroit, and Milwaukee, three cities that have seen disturbing increases in violent crime, particularly homicides. For decades, the Department of Justice has achieved significant success when utilizing our anti-violent crime task forces and federal law enforcement agents to enforce federal law and assist American cities that are experiencing upticks in violent crime.”

“Those cities will see increased resources from the FBI, U.S. Marshals Service, Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that will aim to reduce crime, particularly gun violence,” reports Fox News.

“Under the new expansion, more than 25 federal investigators will go to Cleveland, and the Bureau of Justice Assistance will provide up to $1 million to the city to support the program. More than 40 federal agents will go to Detroit, in addition to 10 ATF in the city who will be reassigned to violent gun crimes, and Detroit will get as much as $1.4 million from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, with as much as $1.9 million going to Milwaukee, which will also see the arrival of at least 25 federal investigators,” adds Fox.

PORTLAND SPIRALS: Far-Left Mayor Blames ‘FEDERAL TROOPS’ for Violence, Vandalism in His City

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.20.20

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler bizarrely blamed “Federal Troops” for the current violence sweeping his city; saying their “tactics” are “making the situation much more dangerous” for local residents.

“Before the Federal Troops got here, violence was way down, vandalism was way down… The energy was coming out of the demonstrations. What happened is the troops came in, they used their Unconstitutional tactics, they injured non-violent demonstrators, and the whole thing blew up again,” said Wheeler.

 

“The reason we want those Federal Troops out of our city is that they are making the situation much more dangerous,” he added.  “I’m worried that one of our local law enforcement officers is going to get killed because of the tactics they’re engaged in.”

The Portland Police Department struggled to contain another night of civil unrest in the city Monday; confirming officers were repeatedly attacked with glass bottles and ball bearings.

“Members of the crowd are still not dispersing despite numerous orders to leave and opportunities to do so,” posted the Department on Twitter. “To those on N Fenwick/Lombard, disperse to the North. This has been declared a riot and you are being ordered to disperse.”

“Some of the items thrown at officers include paint, ball bearings, and glass bottles, which are all criminal acts,” adds the Portland PD.
