Trump's Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice is certainly moving in the complete opposite direction of Obama's Task Force on 21st Century Policing and appears to be almost entirely focused on giving more powers to law enforcement officials at the state/local level in a manner that I would characterize as authoritarian. It brought to mind Trump's admiration for Philippine president Duterte and his extrajudicial methods to deal with illegal drug dealers. It also plays to Trump's faux populist talking points about "violent crime in the cities" when in fact, with a few exceptions, violent crimes (and property crimes) have been on the decline for the last 20+ years. There is certainly a need to focus on improving the safety of police officers who put their lives on the line every day. There is an equally critical need to focus on acknowledging abuses by police that are still relatively common, the need for better training for police and improving police/community relations, particularly in minority communities. All of these were the focus of Obama's Task Force that was tossed into the trash heap upon Trump's arrival.
