    Sure it does. There is no reason to try it if you do not have a problem.

    Wrong.
    It is not an indication that there is something wrong.
    Your claim is absurd.

    Absurdity wins lots of court cases. Wait and see.

    Well, I guess that all comes with how he views his role in his present position, as an 'Activist Attorney General'.

    I'd have to disagree. The only systemic racial bias is the one where minorities, particularly African-Americans, commit the most crime per their population segment, and are most often caught at it.

    • Blacks commit many violent crimes
    • The media invariably sugarcoat black behavior.
    • Everything I say to blacks must be at about the third-grade level. If I slip and use adult language, they get angry because they think I am flaunting my superiority.
    • Public defender is a part of the system against which they are waging war. They often explode with anger at me and are quick to blame me for anything that goes wrong in their case.
    • Many black are unable to discuss the evidence against them rationally because they cannot view things from the perspective of others. They do not understand the pain they are inflicting on others.
    • What too many blacks say about the suffering of others: “What do I care? She ain’t me. She ain’t kin. Don’t even know her.”
    • A complete lack of empathy and are unable to conceal a morality based on the satisfaction of immediate, base needs.
    • No fathers
    • No mothers
    • Many are raised by grandmothers after the state removes the children from an incompetent teenaged mother.
    • These men live in a culture with no expectations, no demands, and no shame.
    • recidivism. Black men are arrested and convicted over and over. It is typical for a black man to have five felony convictions before the age of 30. This kind of record is rare among whites and Hispanics, and probably even rarer among Asians.
    • That blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.

    Now I agree that there's something drastically wrong and socially maladaptive in the black communities and lac families, how or why else would the above be the result?

    Greetings, Erik.

    What does Holder expect to accomplish, other than keeping Ferguson in the news? Can he overturn a Grand Jury decision that took months to decide? You can be certain that every "t" was crossed, and every "I" was dotted in this particular case, for obvious reasons. So he disagrees with the verdict - one side in every legal case loses every day, so that's nothing new. Why is he taking this one personally?

    Greeting Polgara!

    There was federal oversight of the Detroit police force for years as well, recently lifted, if I recall, and the it cost the police force a pile of money that may very well have been better spent on training, equipment, patrol cars, whatever, rather than paying for the federal oversight. Seems all so counter productive. All I can think is that Holder is thinking a similar 'punishment' for Ferguson, regardless of the GJ decision.

    Absurd is your idea that I should be able to point you to a brief yet to be written in a case yet to be filed.
