I have to assume Holder, and Obama, and Sharpton will come to Chicago soon to honor the 9 year old gunned down in a back yard not far from Obama's old mansion. No. They aren't coming to Chicago? Why not? Oh, that's right there are no photo ops in Chicago. Dead boys in the back yard happens all the time.

The best part is that I get to enjoy these right wing teabaggers misery and pain as they suffer over the very thing that brings we patriotic Americans so peace of mind and pride... and that is having President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder in charge and getting things accomplished.

Obama's pal, Holder, flew halfway across the country to console a grieving African mother whose son was allegedly killed by a White cop. Since Obama became president, thousands of daughters and sons of White mothers have either been killed, or left with lifelong debilities at the hands of the Africans. I may have missed it, but I do not recall Holder ever having offered his condolences those grieving White mothers.

This "I feel your pain" nonsense is ridiculously racist and terrorist pandering. Holder whines he was stopped a couple of times on highways and his car searched. He interpreted this as racial profiling and felt bad.

More intense than Holder's story, I've been stopped two times by police and searched. One time in Knoxville, TN, while hitchhiking in the dead of winter with over a foot of snow on the ground, I was searched. The officer demanded I remove my boots and I stood in the snow in my stocking feet for about 15 minutes, while the officer continued to process his radio information sitting in his warm cruiser.

Another time in Southern California near San Diego, an officer stopped me and made me completely empty my sea bag and display all my belongings for him to examine. He also had me remove my shoes and stand that way for almost an hour as he completed his checks.

I felt harassed. These were much worse incidents than what Holder reports in his pandering to rioting looters in St. Louis.

I am White. Holder is full of crap and a typical Liberal wuss racist affirmative action taker.

Hell no they won't be there. Blacks killing Blacks is not news, it's expected and it's business as usual.

Ah yes, fake marine. Accomplishments. Well biongo did get osama. But now we have ISIS. boingo did pass ACA. But now 30 million Americans are still without health care. How many people are still getting food stamps yet? A third of the work force gave up looking for work because the economy is doing so great now. Well we'll see what kind of accomplishments boingo and his pet dog holder achieve in Ferguson. If his past accomplishments are any indication, they'll just make things worse then they are now.

Black Prof. of Harvard Law, Charles Ogletree, just lied on National TV on the Andrea Mitchell show. During an interview with Chris Matthews Ogletree said the "kid" was putting his hands up saying " I'm innocent. Don't shoot, don't shoot" and that would be a picture that would be in his mind for a very long time. Matthews asked Ogletree how he knew that that happened that way because there is conflicting testimony from eyewitnesses some said he did do that and some say he (Mike Brown) was rushing the police officer, that there was physical evidence on the face of the police officer. Matthews asked Ogletree if he didn't see reasonable doubt and that the police officer might be innocent. Stuttering Ogletree says "Not at all, let me say this ..." Matthews asks Ogletree then does he discount the witnesses that says Brown was rushing toward the officer and accept the witness statements of those who say he (Brown) had his hands in the air and asks Ogletree how he distinguishes in what he (Ogletree) accepts and what he denies. Ogletree goes on the say look at the autopsy report and the police report ... and stated "you look at what you see televised, that he was had his hands up saying don't shoot, don't shoot" Matthews asked Ogletree how he saw televised pictures of him (Brown) with his hands in the air. Ogletree stuttered and said "they been on not this station but on stations since this happened almost two weeks ago ..." Ogletree lied. There was no televised pictures of Mike Brown on any station with his hand in the air. Unbelievable and Ogletree is not the only one. I say " JUSTICE FOR DARREN WILSON".

This halfbreed Bolshevik goon Holder is going to railroad this White Cop, who stood his ground and did his duty, to pander to the Democrat's Black voting cattle, typical Obama regime thuggery.

I know huh? Its great seeing as though since holder got to Ferguson we learned how, despite all the lies......

Brown was NOT shot in the back (like you lied about and havent admitted to),

The cop has a broken eye socket that all the race baiters claimed never happened,

Brown had just robbed a small store minutes before the shooting (despite claims that his was turning his life around and attending college soon),

The cop never tried to wrestle the "gentle giant" through his driver's window,

SO now what? Fury and "outrage" that his body was left in the street as part of the crime scene? Is that what you are left with after all the hype, all the lies and lost money in over time, lost businesses and community division?

How about being honest and admitting you where led by the nose by the same race baiters that you hold up so high? Naw, that wont happen. That would require some self respect and honesty that we will never see out of a racist hater like yourself. Some patriot you are.

No, Holder showed up to ensure that justice and equality would reign for a community terrorized by a rogue policing agency.

There's nothing to verify Brown slugged Wilson and injured his eye in the autopsy or witness reports.
