AG Van Hollen soft on Domestic Abusers and Harassers, decides not to use GPS tracking program.

AG J.B. Van Hollen must not have liked a program of grants to local police and communities in the 2013-2015 budget to monitor people under restraining orders with GPS technology. It looks like someone is soft on domestic abuse and harassment.
AP: DOJ officials say they never handed out any grants. They say the budget's statutory language doesn't give judges the authority to make GPS monitoring part of restraining orders.
Really? Or was it something else…
The Justice Department has asked Walker in its 2015-17 budget request to eliminate the program.
Ah, J.B. didn't like it. Got it. Aren't Republicans the ones determined to carry out laws passed by the legislature no matter what?
