Here’s a feel good story for your Friday afternoon.
Thursday, Attorney General Barr made an impromptu stop to thank attendees of a pro-police gathering for their support of law enforcement.
That time you’re driving in Virginia and the Attorney General spots a group of people in front of a police precinct showing their support for the police.
AG to FBI Detail: “Can we make a quick U-Turn? I want to jump out and thank those people.”

From The Hill:
Demonstrators were holding signs with supportive messages for law enforcement like “Back the Blue” and “They give their lives for you.” One person can be heard telling Barr “we love you” and to “keep up the good work.”
One woman told the attorney general that she thought his testimony last month before House lawmakers was “spectacular.” Barr testified before the House Judiciary Committee on issues ranging from his handling of the prosecutions of President Trump‘s allies and the forcible clearing of protesters at Lafayette Square in June to allow the president to hold a photo opportunity in front of the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church.
