Sally Yates, New Deputy Attorney General, States “We’re not the Department of Prosecutions”

Washington Post.  Sally Yates operates the DOJ and oversees the FBI; the Drug Enforcement Administration; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the U.S. Marshals Service; and the Bureau of Prisons.  She has voiced her commitment to follow through on the Criminal Justice Reforms started by Eric Holder.  In the article, Sally Yates is quoted stating ““Certainly, I don’t think I can ever be accused of being soft on crime,” Yates said. “But we need to be using the limited resources we have to ensure that we are truly doing justice and that the sentences we’re meting out are just and proportional to the crimes that we’re charging…We’re not the Department of Prosecutions or even the Department of Public Safety,” Yates said. “We are the Department of Justice.” To read the article, click here:  New deputy attorney general: ‘We’re not the Department of Prosecutions
