Politico is just so concerned, you see.
 
2014-08-20 12:28:36 PM  
You've got to know when to Holder
Know when to fold 'er
Know when to walk away
Know when to run...

This is just the setup so that Obama can bring out Luther.

As much as I don't like Eric Holder, he may very well be the right man for this job.

Is there any response to this that won't upset the GOP?  You don't have to tell me what it is, I'm keen to guess.

I'd wager he gets the same message they had for Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Obozo.  'Fark you, you haven't done shiat for us.  Go HOME.'

Yes, it seems that African Americans have figured out the shell game of these race baiting fund raisers.

Please let this be true.  I would do anything to make this happen.  This would fix government to the nth degree.  K&P for president in 2016!

Looks that way...

She says he should explain how the Justice Department is going to make sure there's an impartial investigation of Brown's shooting, how it will stand up for the rights of peaceful demonstrators, and how it will help them talk directly with the leaders of the Missouri Highway Patrol to point out potential troublemakers.

That all sounds very reasonable, and I hope Holder is up to the task.

I was reading a lot of reports from people in Ferguson last night saying that being tear gassed every night isn't going to do any more good. The world has seen what is going on down there. It's time for a response.

"Oh no! A water bottle! Better shoot everyone with rubber bullets!"

Holder is screwed.

If the Feds find nothing in the initial incident was done wrong, half the country will scream bloody murder they were biased.

If the Feds find something was done wrong and charge the cop, the other half the country will scream bloody murder about being biased.

That's the best part about being in a lame duck administration -  you can actually do what you think is right and tell everyone who disagrees to go fark themselves.
 
2014-08-20 05:06:10 PM  
Please note that I think the AG needs to have at least two investigations.

One into the initial shooting, and a second into all the 1st Amendment violations going on in Ferguson.

The initial incident doesn't even matter compared to what they've done since then.

Couldn't have said it better.

I wish him all the luck in the world on this.  My expectations are not very high, but probably higher than with anyone else.

Well, he did a bang up job with the Benghazi investigation, so this will turn out well.
 
2014-08-20 05:20:17 PM  
Holder is a racist. He will do everything he can to crucify that cop.
 
2014-08-20 05:21:17 PM  
If I were to take a drink every time one of my Facebook "friends" posted a news report about some white person being mugged by black people, usually accompanied with surveillance video, or a list of white police officers killed in the line of duty, almost always with the text "why isn't Al Sharpton protesting this?", I'd be dead of alcohol poisoning.

/the answers is "because Al Sharpton cares as much about that crime as you care about a cop firing six rounds into an unarmed black kid"
//mebbe it's time for a Facebook purge

And he is racist why exactly?

The sofa: If the latest leaked info about the cop being beaten, etc is true, he is going to have a hard time with the individuals who have been most vocal about this.

Not an easy job at all.


Except that it is bullshiat and the sites claiming it happened stole images from U of Iowa, photoshopped them, and tried to pass them off as "proof".
 
2014-08-20 05:30:37 PM  
So wait ... the job of a looter is to loot. And since looters typically quit after four or five shifts, how can Holder take credit for "peace" when he shows up on day six? Unless of course he planned it that way. Hm. Very clever. Very third world clever, which is typical, but clever nonetheless.

I don't know that that's necessarily the case. According the last polling I heard, a very slight majority of people feel that there's not enough information to determine anything much as of yet.

A slight majority of black people polled believe that Wilson should be convicted for murder regardless of what actually happened, but that's an extreme minority of the country.

I have high hopes that Holder's next task is to investigate why the quality of trolling at Fark is declining so rapidly.

Given the original source and the question of why the cops wouldn't have released that info along with the convenience store footage, I think that leak is pure BS.

gunga galunga: the answers is "because Al Sharpton cares as much about that crime as you care about a cop firing six rounds into an unarmed black kid"


I disagree.  Al Sharpton is indifferent, but he doesn't fap to it.

Yeah. Things are pretty bad here now. People at least used to try to have a somewhat conversation before it descended into crap. Now it goes straight to the crap.

The cop got NO medical attention for whatever happened to him, so that leaked stuff is AT LEAST exaggerated.

"a report claims"


but if you stop reading right before that it sounds pretty convincing.
 
2014-08-20 05:39:07 PM  

deschinc: "a report claims"


True, a report that cites sources in the St. Louis County Police Department and the DA's office.  In any case, it is more than just a shopped image floating around in the intertubes.
 
2014-08-20 05:40:43 PM

Or you could actually read the next few sentences on where the report  cites its sources.....

Even if Wilson was injured during the incident, the question then is "how?" Was it like Brown's friend said, and Wilson took a door to the face when he learned the physics of trying to open your door into a 6'4" 292 lb person? Did Wilson initiate the physical contact by grabbing Brown by the neck, and Brown reacted? Did it happen after Wilson shot Brown the first time from inside his vehicle, and Brown punched him to get away from the shooting? And so on.

Hey, guy? I believe that there's every chance the "broken bones, crazy black guy" thing might be an exaggeration, but there's no need to make things up. Wilson was treated at the hospital. This has been stated from the beginning.

Where did you get that?

After all, police department's account claims Officer Wilson's face was hit during the altercation and he was treated for his wounds at a hospital.

EvilEgg: Is there any response to this that won't upset the GOP?  You don't have to tell me what it is, I'm keen to guess.


The Fox narrative of a savage beating being perpetrated by Mr. Brown on brave Officer Wilson is now established as a fact, so no.

A week later this comes out?
 
2014-08-20 05:44:32 PM  
Holder as some kind of racial healer ....?            ha - ha - ha   NO.
