US attorney general calls for end to violence in Ferguson, Mo.



Published: Wed, August 20, 2014 @ 1:39 a.m.

Justice Dept. will defend rights of peaceful protesters, he says

Associated Press

WASHINGTON

Attorney General Eric Holder is promising a thorough investigation into the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown while calling for “an end to the acts of violence in the streets” of Ferguson, Missouri.

Holder says the Justice Department “will defend the right of protesters to peacefully demonstrate and for the media to cover a story that must be told.” He is calling on the citizens of Ferguson “to join with law enforcement in condemning the actions of looters, vandals and others seeking to inflame tensions.”

Holder is traveling to Ferguson today to meet with FBI and other officials carrying out an independent federal investigation into Brown’s death. His remarks appeared late Tuesday in an open letter published on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website.

Holder can't handle all of the killings that are occurring daily in Chicago. To send him to Missouri to see what he is able to do there is a joke.

AG Holder is in Ferguson to ensure that the "investigation" reaches the pre-determined conclusions that AG Holder wants.
