What do top rated Greensboro criminal trial attorneys think of the new Attorney General?
The attorneys at Garrett, Walker, Aycoth and Olson try to stay out of politics, especially in the national level. However, the appointment of a new United States Attorney General, or “top-cop,” is an important event to all members of the Bar. Those of us who practice criminal defense, and are former prosecutors, are especially interested in qualifications and philosophies he brings to the role.
The New York Times reports that Senator Jeff Sessions was confirmed to the position. He, himself is a former prosector. The newspaper states that Sessions will focus on a tougher enforcement of immigration, drug trafficking, and gun trafficking.
Whether this is a good thing or not remains to be seen. Tough tactics are fine, but the Constitutional protections afforded to all Americans must be absolute and guard against abuse. Recent actions involving immigration raids, no longer solely focused on criminals, raise this simple question: The Constitution protects America citizens, but what happens when those sworn to uphold the Constitution start to believe an America citizen can be recognized by sight (ie, race, color, dress, physicality’s, etc)?
