Barr took over as attorney general in February and has long championed a "tough-on-crime" approach, similar to that espoused by President Donald Trump.

"That is the emergence in some of our large cities of district attorneys that style themselves as 'social justice' reformers, who spend their time undercutting the police, letting criminals off the hook, and refusing to enforce the law."
