Ahead of the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri, both outgoing (finally!)Attorney General Eric Holder and Emperor Obama released messages warning law enforcement to behave themselves.
“The Justice Department encourages law enforcement officials, in every jurisdiction, to work with the communities they serve to minimize needless confrontation,” Holder said.
“Over the past few months, we’ve seen demonstrations and protests that have sought to bring attention to real and significant underlying issues involving police practices, implicit bias, and pervasive community distrust. And in most cases, these demonstrations have been both meaningful and responsible, and have brought vital issues to the attention of the public at large,” the Holder said in a video.
(That’s a fascinating take since the shooting sparked months of violent protests, property destruction and looting in Ferguson, and law enforcement officials there have been bracing for more violence after the decision is announced.)
“I know, from first-hand experience, that demonstrations like these have the potential to spark a sustained and positive national dialogue, to provide momentum to a necessary conversation, and to bring about critical reform.”
Full transcript, here.
What does he mean by “implicit bias?” Stopping a suspect who fits the description of a person who just robbed a convenience store? Should the police just stop doing their jobs so as not to show “implicit bias”?
And I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that this “national dialogue” Holder wants to inflict on the nation isn’t the pro-law and order dialogue you and I would prefer. The cringe-inducing term “critical reform” applies to law enforcement – not law breakers.
NYC is slowly becoming the crime-infested sewer it was in the 70s and 80s because Communist Mayor Bill De Blasio is undoing all the good policing practices instilled by former Mayor Giuliani. Holder and Obama would like to see those policies duplicated in all of our cities, God help us.
In Emperor Obama’s message to the people of Ferguson, Missouri, he at least pretended that he wanted his minions out there on the street to “keep protests peaceful.”
“I think first and foremost, keep protests peaceful,” Obama said in the interview, which was taped in Las Vegas after he delivered a speech about immigration.
“This is a country that allows everybody to express their views, allows them to peacefully assemble, to protest actions that they think are unjust,” Obama said. “But using any event as an excuse for violence is contrary to rule of law, contrary to who we are.”
Why isn’t the president telling these people to go home and stop rabble-rousing, since he knows that the evidence exonerates Officer Wilson? The fact that the Grand Jury has been examining all of the evidence and is making an informed decision – means justice is being done in Ferguson? What on earth is there to protest? Why isn’t he trying to correct mistaken impressions instead of trying to excuse them? Because oh – in the end – all this turmoil that he and Holder seem to be welcoming – will lead to “critical reforms.”
Lest we forget, the Emperor was once a Community Organizer, himself – and it shows.
Some Obama allies in the New Black Panthers have been indicted on weapons charges in Ferguson.
Via Gateway Pundit:
On Friday Olajuwon Ali and Brandon Muhammad were indicted in federal court for illegal firearms purchase — in a bomb plot.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:
Two men have been indicted on weapons charges in federal court here for allegedly making straw purchases of two handguns at the Cabela’s sporting goods store in Hazelwood.
The indictment was handed up Wednesday and unsealed Friday accusing Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis of making false statements to obtain firearms. The defendants’ ages and addresses were not made public.
According to local News 4 the two men were arrested in connection with a plot to explode pipe bombs during protests.
As you may remember, the New Black Panthers are the Militant group that Holder refused to prosecute back in 2009 after some members engaged in what one prominent civil rights activist described as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, including the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.
Again, in 2012, the Holder Justice Department looked the other way when the New Black Panthers in Sanford Florida, put a bounty on George Zimmerman’s head and distributed wanted dead or alive fliers. The Zimmermans had to live in fear in Sanford, just as Officer Wilson has gone into hiding in Ferguson – with a bounty also put on his head.
This is not how Justice works in a free country.
Excuse my French, but you have got to be shitting me. I did not just see this via the Independent Sentinel:
It’s a joke, right?
Via Got News, another disgraceful example of the pressure the Grand Jury is under to indict Officer Wilson – which is the only reason this is taking so long.
In an audio interview with WUNC, the new leader of the Congressional Black Caucus called for Darren Wilson to be indicted and prejudiced the Ferguson grand jury.
Former judge and new leader of the Congressional Black Caucus G. K. Butterfield called for the grand jury to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown and warned that there would be consequences if the jury “turn their back on justice.”
Tell me again how “meaningful and responsible” these protests are?….
Ferguson protesters were out en masse Friday night chanting and walking in the middle of the street.
A group of protesters were chanting when they forced a car off the road into a pole.
The car did not seem to slow down when it smashed into the pole.
The weather is turning nicer in Missouri – which doesn’t work in civilization’s favor.
