    I read the report. Because of who comprised it, I have little trust in it. Furthermore, when an Atty General finds he has probable cause to investigate a police department under civil rights violations, once the report is complete it is arbitrated between the police department and the feds in private. You sure as hell don't publish the report especially on an area that is already been inflamed ironically in part by the Atty General. Now Ferguson is just one of about thirty ongoing investigations of cities Holder has going on at this time. They completed one on Seattle not too long ago. A great city, or use to be until Holder got done with them for now crime is on the rise. You see, this has more to do with than "racism". The agenda is for the feds to take more control of local police forces.

    You just said that Holder thinks my brother is a racist.
    Why would you say such a thing, ReverendHellh0und ?

    I wanted to believe in McConnell, and am on record for saying this.
    However, it is clear he has lost control of both chambers in DC for the time being.

    Sorry, but you are comparing apples and oranges here. The Michael Brown shooting was not the cops fault, but that says zero about the police force and their behavior as a whole. Who knows the man who shot Brown could have been one of the worst racist cops in the force (not saying that he is, I am just saying "imagine/what iff scenario) and still have been totally in the right in the shooting of Brown, because his being right in this shooting says absolutely nothing about his other police work/attitude to African Americans. The report that showed his innocence there was just about that case, not about the police in Ferguson as a whole.

    So yes, if you want to call it that, then yes, the US ministry of justice is stating after an investigation that the police force/police organization is to blame/racist because they have been shown to act in a manner that suggests/proves racist discrimination.

    This goes deeper than just "blaming" the cops. Just because the Brown shooting was found to be justified means absolutely nothing about the normal behavior of the police force as a whole in that town. And sadly they have been proven to be a police force that is racist.

    And why should we not blame the officers if they happen to be objectively seenracist in nature. That does not say anything about every single officer, there can be officers that are totally non-racist but as a whole, the police force there uses racist methods and chooses their suspects based on racial grounds. The report clearly shows that.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    You obviously did not read the report
    Our review of documents revealed many additional email communications that exhibited racial
    or ethnic bias, as well as other forms of bias. Our investigation has not revealed any indication
    that any officer or court clerk engaged in these communications was ever disciplined. Nor did
    we see a single instance in which a police or court recipient of such an email asked that the
    sender refrain from sending such emails, or any indication that these emails were reported as
    inappropriate. Instead, the emails were usually forwarded along to others.49

    FWIW, one big problem was those emails were sent by supervisors, the bosses, and the environment was such that supervisors felt comfortable sending, and others forwarding, those emails without any fear of negative repercussions, and none occurred. Not even the most benign - "Hey Bob, let's keep the work email clean OK."
    It looks like everyone who thinks the report didn't prove that there's racism in Ferguson's justice system are people who didn't read the report

    We usually walk to the Arch at least once down a beautiful boulevard between sessions.

    Plus, it's the first weekend of March Madness in the NCAA Men's Basketball.
    Sports bars/restaurants are packed to the gills in my hotel area.

    In wrestling, at least one Congressman, Jim Jordan will be there--so there will be more security.
    His son is seeded 3rd at 165 while his nephew is seeded 5th at the same weight.



    I know Missouri has more lax gun laws than Illinois but I don't own a gun.
    I don't know the law about carrying cutting devices for hand-to-hand combat if I or my wife is assaulted.

    Obviously, I'll get my share of this Ferguson mess next week if I so choose.
    Though I like to take naps between sessions, two sessions a day.

    If you want to carry a pocket knife, the farther south you go, the less restricted and more expected it is

    I get grief for not carrying a blade on me all the time lol. But check the city ordinances where you will be. Just to be sure.

    Eric Holder believes all cops are racists, targets ‘unconscious bias’ | New York Post



    There's really nothing Holder can say to please you GOPs.
    I'm not a republican, you do yourself a disservice when you suggest I am.

    Obama, Holder and Sharpton should be proud of themselves...their continued inflaming of racial tensions just got 2 more cops shot.

    I also saw Holder's comments about it. Talk about PUKE! If i were a member of one of those cops' families, i'd tell the asshole to his face to take a stroll through traffic, preferably where semi-trucks frequently travel.

    Really?

    Maybe they should all have just used private emails.
    There's 105 pages documenting systemic violations of citizens first and fourth amendment rights, as well as violations of the fourteenth amendment. There's also all manner of law violations. That's all before we get to the ethical codes of conduct that were constantly violated. It's painful, but read the report, and you'll no longer support the indefensible.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
