The Rev. Anthony Evans was present at the confirmation hearing of the attorney general and saw firsthand how quid pro quo happens. The president of the Fraternal Order of Police, Chuck Canterbury, was there to testify in favor of the attorney general’s confirmation and as a payback for Mr. Canterbury’s favorable testimony the Justice Department tried to roll back the consent decrees. We should let them know that the National Black Church Initiative hears everything and sees everything and was not going to allow this quid pro quo to occur. That we have ministers across this country watching everything the police do and we will not be too shy to support them in any way we can including a lawsuit against their behavior.
