The Obama/Holder axis for truth is in high gear and they’re going to find the truth. The Civil Rights Division of the Obama/Holder Department of Justice is working overtime. And they’re doing for their base.
If you’ve been following the happenings in Ferguson, MO since the shooting of Michael Brown by white cop you’ll know that right after The Revs showed up, Eric Holder was on the scene with over 50 lawyers and “investigators” from the Civil Rights Division to make sure that somebody got held accountable. Somebody white, that is.
The U.S. Justice Department announced on Thursday it will launch a civil investigation into the police department in Ferguson, Missouri, where unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white policeman last month.
The probe is the second federal investigation spurred by Brown’s death at the hands of police officer Darren Wilson, which sparked days of protests in Ferguson. The Justice Department is simultaneously investigating possible criminal charges against the police officer who shot Brown.
Attorney General Eric Holder, who visited Ferguson after the shooting, said residents there “consistently expressed concerns” and “deep mistrust” of the police, prompting the federal investigation.
General Holder, if “concerns” and “deep mistrust” of a governmental agency were grounds for an investigation, you, the President, and most of his Cabinet officers would have been tarred and feathered or boiled in oil years ago.
The article linked above notes that the DoJ is more successful bringing action against entire police departments than they are against single officers. In other words, the Civil Rights Division can prove squat against an individual cop doing his or her job, but they can use innuendo against an entire department pretty effectively.
The thing about the Department of Orwellian Justice is that once they start an “investigation” they never stop. Unless, of course, they uncover wrongdoing by a highly placed Democrat. See the Lois Lerner investigation that was so thorough so fast that it prompted the FBI Special Agent in Charge of the investigation, a long time Obama donor, to declare the IRS clean as a whisker before they’d even interviewed one of the organizations that were harassed by the IRS.
Just to reinforce the notion that Holder never gives up, especially in an election year when his base is not really motivated, let’s not forget this.
Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that the federal civil rights investigation into the 2012 killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin remains active, noting “recent developments” in the case.
The Justice Department is weighing charges against George Zimmerman, a volunteer neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Martin in an incident that captured national interest.
Zimmerman was acquitted of murder charges more than a year ago, but the Justice Department is still running down leads as part of its civil rights probe, Holder said.
“That matter is ongoing,” said Holder, who was asked about the case during a news conference announcing the opening of another civil rights investigation centered on the Ferguson, Mo., police force in the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
We’re guessing the “recent developments are the latest Gallup Poll showing President Obama’s 38% approval rating. Look for that to drop over the coming weeks and look for the Civil Rights Division to assign more “investigators” to both cases.
The President may not have a strategy to deal with ISIS or Putin, but he’s sure got one to make sure the minorities who make up his lethargic base know that he’s making sure nobody is going to hold them accountable. Hell, if that happened somebody might think that he and Holder should be held accountable.
