    Loretta Lynch calls young criminals “justice-involved youths.” And instead of prosecuting them, which is her job, she announced that the Justice Dept. will spend money providing them with lawyers and housing.


    Meanwhile the attacks on the constitutional rights of lawful gun owners will continue.
    Don’t expect crime and violence levels to drop anytime soon. Not with our liberal JustUS department
