And the former Dallas police chief brown thank you so much for being here morning. That would that would have been that they are packed them yeah. If that we think it's that bad apple later. Senator Jeff Sessions is coming up first today he is mr. mr. Trump's pick for attorney general. What's cheek in your mind right now she to you earth would he want to hear from him. Well those obviously several concerns has been expressed. Difference. I'll hear I'm looking forward to hear him respond to. How he in business is Justice Department he envisions oversight of police organizations. And going forward what he feels about promote justice reform. Not just police reform the comprehensive. Cruel justice system reform he's got several comments that he's made in the past. A little bit of a mixed bag if you look through it I'm curious about how he sees going forward in neutral administration dealing with those topics. And that makes fact that you reference that's brought up problems for him in the past he's been through confirmation hearing before that he didn't make it through our federal judge has. I'm air would he want to hear from him what do you think he needs to make today. To convince members of the committee that he's the right person. So the chief is talking about that mixed bag comments it just makes me think you know when the real Jeff Sessions please stand up. Because he said some things about police reform. That have been concerning at the same time he says he's a proponent of community policing. As the former mayor of a city that's in the midst of establishing a consent decree. I'm very curious about what. That's going to look like in the future where's he going to stand on the existing consent decrees what is he gonna do moving forward to make sure that. Cities across the country but meaningful and enforceable. Police reform in place. And how will that. How will he encourage. The police departments across the country to work with the communities they serve. Those are the types of questions that I'm hoping he'll answer today.
