DEA Head to Agents: Trump ‘Condoned Police Conduct’ During Controversial Speech

Acting DEA Administrator Chuck Rosenberg pushed back against President Donald Trump’s controversial comments about police use of force, sending an email over the weekend to remind staff members to “always act honorably” by maintaining “the very highest standards” for treating criminal suspects.

The memo was in response to Trump suggesting to officers in Long Island that they shouldn’t worry about protecting suspects’ heads while placing them in police vehicles, the Washington Post reports

“We have an obligation to speak out when something is wrong,” Rosenberg wrote.

Citing some of the agency’s core values – integrity, respect and compassion – Rosenberg said, “This is how we conduct ourselves. This is how we treat those whom we encounter in our work: victims, witnesses, subjects, and defendants. This is who we are.”

He added: “The President, in remarks delivered yesterday in New York, condoned police misconduct regarding the treatment of individuals placed under arrest by law enforcement,” Rosenberg wrote.

The White House maintains that Trump was joking when he suggested in New York last week that police should not “be too nice” to suspects.

“Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over?” Trump told the officers “Like, don’t hit their head, and they just killed somebody — don’t hit their head. I said, you can take the hand away, okay?”

TSA Head: Screeners Shouldn’t Have to Worry About Speeding Up Lines

After the Sept. 11, 2011, terrorist attacks, airport lines have become longer and more unpredictable.

Recently, pressure has been placed on airport screeners to speed up the process when lines get too long.

But TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger said it should not be the job of screeners to speed up the pace. They’re focus, he said, should be on security, the Associated Press reports. 

TSA officials, not screeners, should worry about the length of the lines, he said.

“I want front-line screeners doing what they’re supposed to do, which is screening and making sure that things that shouldn’t get past the checkpoint don’t get past,” he said. “I let leaders and managers worry about things like queuing and line speed.”
