Barr announces arrest of over 1000 violent criminals in major operation

US Attorney General Bill Barr just announced the arrest of over 1000 suspects accused of violent crimes this summer.

The DOJ announced in a press release: “The Attorney General launched the operation on July 8, 2020, as a sustained, systematic and coordinated law enforcement initiative in which federal law enforcement agencies work in conjunction with state and local law enforcement officials to fight violent crime.”

Fox reports:

At least 207 people have been charged with a federal crime, and more than 1,000 arrests have been made in major metropolitan cities since the Department of Justice launched Operation Legend in July, U.S. Attorney General William Barr announced on Wednesday.

It was named in honor of 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was shot and killed while he slept in the early morning of June 29 in Kansas City, Mo. Last week, a Jackson County prosecutor announced second-degree murder charges against his suspected killer, 22-year-old Ryson Ellis, who was being held in Tulsa County Jail.

In the press conference, Barr noted that law enforcement is facing increasing violence across the country, due to a number of causes.

The Attorney General is doing the right thing. Any of these hoodlums should be convicted and sentenced to at least 3 years in a Federal prison or deported.

Those charged with Federal offences won’t get a slap on the wrist, Those 207 will get jail time. The rest will probably just get probation.

Finally some justice in this country again now he needs to arrest Obama,Clinton, and Biden for treason and AOC, Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of the terrorist conspirators for inciting riots against the US and throw away the key. If this were other countries they would already be in jail with life sentences.

I am glad that this administration has taken a stand against the violence and the thugs responsible. We should all realize that this sort of violence will only escalate if the Dems take control of this nation. Time to remove them from office. They hate our country and its history and the Constitution.

It seems that the consenses is, after reading the comments here, that the jail terms should be longer? Imho, a 25 cent piece of metal would better set a hard example to the wanna be criminals. Where does it say ” an eye for an eye “??? Only God can punish these heathens but hard times should be put upon those that commit the crimes, sent back to where they came from never to return. They keep getting off by sleezy lawyers, do it again and the cycle continues! There is going to have to be examples set so that these criminal acts STOP??? I’m thinking that the Death Penalty should perhaps be considered and acted upon for each and every one of these murderers for ANY country, imo. They get off but the poor people and their families who had their lives snuffed out and/or ruined have to live with the void forever. Where is the justice in that?! There isn’t any! Barr can only do what he can under the law but maybe the laws need revamping NOW! Trump is the Law and Order President, remember? VOTE TRUMP Nov. 3 to save the nation. Sorry to be so long winded but it’s just NOT fair especially when it continues, daily, and it is SO VERY SAD for those left behind!

what is the point, if the courts, with judges unwilling to enforce the law, let them out almost immediately, free from any guilt. And these criminals have unlimited legal cover, paid for by “generous” benefactors. These criminals know that ordinary courts will mostly let them off. If the FBI took on the cases, this would not happen

Your exactly right. They will just let them go! That’s because the democrats have taken over! We need to get the democrats and all their crooked Obama and biden people out of office! That’s the only way we can get our Country back and of course keep President Trump in office! We have our work cut out for us. We have years of democrats destroying our country, it’s going to take us Republicans to stick together and Make America Great! 🇺🇸Trump 2020🇺🇸🙏

This is great- long over do because obummo’s army of liars and traitors made it that way. Only because we now have good conservatives- republicans that are trying to make sure “ the letter of the law survives”. The rioters are tearing down our country, and without honest people running the country it would have continued to be more obummo tactics throughout . God bless America- thx President Trump .

fantastic Mr. Attorney General Barr. You cannot arrest them and then let them out the very next day. This is no punishment at all. Each one of these individuals need to spend a considerable time in jail or prison. The despicable hoodlum who kicked the person while lying in the street needs to be found and he needs to serve at least 10 years in prison . That will make him think about what he did to this Man was an atrocious act. He is a coward.

I hope the DOJ arrested these worthless Mayors and Governors who allowed the rioting, looting , burning, and murders. Aiding and abetting criminals is a crime, plus failing to uphold their oath of office qualifies them to be removed from Office.

History relates that Australia was first a Penal Colony before it developed into a respectable nation. Does the US hold any uninhabited islands where these people can be incarcerated in the hopes that history might repeat itself?

…like an island in the middle of the Pacific or Atlantic, where they have to farm and work for the food they eat. Naturalize the sea- water to drink. If they don’t get along…fine, let them execute each other…save the states from doing that. There most be an atoll some where were A bombs used to be tested…perfect place for them. Unless they are adept at long-distance ocean swimming, and not afraid of sharks…they could live out their life on this “tropical island”.

I agree with you when you stated Attorney Barr should arrest the Governors, mayors, council members, commissioners, all the Democrats and the Rinos who encourage the looters, murders, rapists, and the “peaceful” protesters to engage in their unlawful activities. All governments officials are elected and their job is to represent the people not to entice riots and the destruction of America.

It would be very interesting to identify these criminals, are they members of antifa, are they part of the refugee contingent from 2008 to 2016, are they muslim, chinese, , are they going to be investigated further and vetted, are they sunni or shiite if muslim

Besides jail time…just being off the streets is a relief to the people they have burned out, maimed, killed and tortured…I can only hope some of he prison mates teach them what prison justice is all about…I know it won’t change them, but hopefully make them feel like those they have tortured…and give the police depts a rest.
This got out of hand quickly. It went from not exactly peaceful demonstrators to out and out violence for violence sake! They don’t work, they do drugs, are the dregs of our society…live off welfare, which we citizens pay for through our taxes…if they don’t like their lives, they can change them…problem is, they don’t WANT to work…they like getting things for free, while you and i have to work…sometimes all of our lies. I say fry ’em!

They should be executed if they killed someone if they injured someone they should have to pay for the medical and compensation for the rest of the persons life by working hard labor on some chain gang. All these rioters should be locked up and made to work until each business owner and any other damage is paid for

How long before the leftists spring these thugs? They will either make their bail-there is bail for Federal crimes, right? But even if there is not, others have been arrested and charged with other things. I will be watching to see if the DA’s and the AG’s have the stones to actually do their jobs. If any were arrested in New York City, they are probably already out and committing more crimes.

An eye for an eye. A tooth for a tooth.
You kill someone during widespread riots like what we’re experiencing, regardless of how remote they may be; if you can be linked to the rioting in any way, you pay with your life.
No second degree murder; no manslaughter, no lesser charge.
Anyone directly linked to rioting anywhere in the U. S. should be charged with murder and executed for the numerous deaths of Law Enforcement and everyone else at the hands of the rioters. Summarily.
