    One more thing.

    The extortionists did not really want a Grand Jury. You can see this in their CNN interview. (Grand Juries take a long time and they tend to look at evidence, you see.)

    (CNN) – Attorney General Eric Holder arrived in Ferguson, Missouri, Wednesday and made a pledge to the community that the federal investigation into the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager would be “fair and independent.”

    Holder will meet with the family of 18-year-old Michael Brown to hear their concerns about how this investigation might play out.

    “At a minimum, I think they want to be assured that the process will be fair, that it will be transparent which is what they’ve been calling for from the very beginning. So they’re hopeful that this meeting will add that reassurance that they’ve been looking for since day one,” said Anthony Gray, co-counsel for the Brown Family.

    The county prosecutor overseeing the case said it could take until mid-October to hear all of the evidence related to the shooting.

    The Brown family understands it will take time for the grand jury to review evidence, but “in their estimation, it shouldn’t take long to draw a conclusion,” said Gray.

    “We thought from the very beginning that the prosecutor could have looked at the evidence and filed his own information. He didn’t necessarily have to go to a grand jury, and that decision would have been made a long time ago,” he said.

    I seriously doubt the AG honestly wants a grand jury either.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    I think the cop would like assurances that he will get fair treatment and justice, too. I don't look for Holder to worry about that though.

    My personal opinion is that the only brand of justice Holder believes in is "get whitey"

    If a person sees another gaining power (over a victim or over people in general) by using violence, that person interprets that to mean that violence=power. Some of the victims are going to then put that theory to the test and create some "empowering" violence of their own.
