Loretta Lynch Responds to Criticism That Justice Is Taking Too Long


On the Oct. 3 edition of “CBS This Morning,” U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch discussed recent criticism about the Department of Justice’s response to police brutality.

In the clip, Lynch sells the idea that community policing can prevent police brutality in many of the nation’s crime-ridden cities.

“Community policing is based on a connection between law enforcement and the community,” she starts. “… Rebuilding the bonds of trust between law enforcement and the communities we serve is one of my top priorities.”

In the wake of recent police-involved shootings, Lynch has been heavily criticized. She tells the reporter that she understands protesters’ frustration. However, justice is a process.

“Working through a case can take time,” she explains. “We are building on the work of people who have come before us.”
