    edit: ...Not Holder not race baiters. Remember personal responsibility? The person on persons that shot the police officers is responsible.
    People should be hekd respnsible for inciting violence, which what Holder did with his BS report

The plain fact of the matter is that blacks commit more crimes of all types.
    Is this a fail:

    b. Direct Evidence of Racial Bias
    Our investigation uncovered direct evidence of racial bias in the communications of
    influential Ferguson decision makers. In email messages and during interviews, several court
    and law enforcement personnel expressed discriminatory views and intolerance with regard to
    race, religion, and national origin. The content of these communications is unequivocally
    derogatory, dehumanizing, and demonstrative of impermissible bias.

    We have discovered evidence of racial bias in emails sent by Ferguson officials, all of
    whom are current employees, almost without exception through their official City of Ferguson
    email accounts, and apparently sent during work hours. These email exchanges involved several
    police and court supervisors, including FPD supervisors and commanders. The following emails
    are illustrative:
     A November 2008 email stated that President Barack Obama would not be
    President for very long because “what black man holds a steady job for four
    years.”
     A March 2010 email mocked African Americans through speech and familial
    stereotypes, using a story involving child support. One line from the email read:
    “I be so glad that dis be my last child support payment! Month after month, year
    after year, all dose payments!”
     An April 2011 email depicted President Barack Obama as a chimpanzee.
     A May 2011 email stated: “An African-American woman in New Orleans was
    admitted into the hospital for a pregnancy termination. Two weeks later she
    received a check for $5,000. She phoned the hospital to ask who it was from.
    The hospital said, ‘Crimestoppers.’”
     A June 2011 email described a man seeking to obtain “welfare” for his dogs
    because they are “mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have
    no frigging clue who their Daddies are.”
     An October 2011 email included a photo of a bare-chested group of dancing women,
    apparently in Africa, with the caption, “Michelle Obama’s High School Reunion.”
     A December 2011 email included jokes that are based on offensive stereotypes
    about Muslims.

    So the emails that were uncovered were forged or were the email address hacked? Or you don't them to be racial?

    That is a nonsensical question. Asking me if "I'm Saying" is not asking me if I agree with your ridiculous contention.

    No I do not agree with your unprovable contention of A] "the Executive branch" plays the race card. B] or that media coverage spawns protests.

    Insighting violence and the shoot at police officers are two separate acts. How can it be proven that anyone actions to "insight" led to this shooting of the police officers?

    If it is shown that people were insighting violence against the police...the shooter is ultimately responsible for his actions.

    He's a high govt official, who followed up a report exonerating Wilson (who btw had to leave his job and move out of town for no good reason except the race baiters who pronounced him guilty prior to the investigation), with comments that racism was pervasive throughout the Ferguson police department. He could have handled that much differently, but chose to make a public spectacle out of it for political reasons.

    I am really trying to be civil and calm, but there is no denying it. Assholes will never comprehend that it is lives that matter. So there, sue me.

    It is Holder job as Attorney General of the US to investigate racial discrimination accusations of police departments? How is his discussing the findings of The Department of Justice's investigation...race bating. That's ridiculous.

    What evidence did he have that this was a racial incident?

    Why did he inject race into the investigation of darren wilson?

    This is a DOJ investigation not Holder's personal beliefs. They may be what he believes as well...but the report is what he was discussing.
