    Eric Holder’s Justice Department has definitively leaked that it will not indict the former Ferguson
    cop who killed Michael Brown. That also means “the families of John Crawford III, Tamir Rice, Eric
    Garner and all the other victims around the country must let go of any illusions that DOJ is in their
    corner.” Black America has reached the point of no return. “We now know what to expect from the
    Obama administration – nothing.”

    “We have by now seen the only real policy the government has to offer – waiting us out
    until the storm blows over.“

    All week the DOJ has been floating trial balloons throughout the media that former Ferguson police
    officer Darren Wilson will not be brought up on any charges for his slaying of unarmed black teenager
    Michael Brown – despite 16 eyewitnesses who said that Brown was surrendering with his hands up
    when he was summarily executed by Wilson; despite the glaring abuse of the grand jury process by St.
    Louis District Attorney Robert McCullough and despite Michael Brown's 4th Amendment protections
    against the excessive use of force.

    There is no "very high bar" that needs to be met to establish the case that Wilson intentionally violated
    Michael's civil rights as Holder cynically asserted during his recent diatribe at the historic Ebenezer
    Baptist Church. The Black Attorney General never even mentioned Brown’s right to protection from
    excessive force or Eric Garner’s protection from being strangled by police, his right to duty of care
    rather than his slave patrol police assailants' refusing to administer life saving CPR. Both incidents
    demonstrate the broader, reckless disregard for people who look like Michael and Eric that is rampant
    in the US. The echoes of slavery still reverberate through Ferguson and Brooklyn and Cleveland and
    Oakland and all the other race-toxic communities nationwide.

    President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder see nothing wrong with any of this. If they did,
    they are empowered to act.

    Eye read the article. The quotes listed below are sooo true....

    “Neither the president nor the attorney general have the moral courage to do what is right.”

    “The echoes of slavery still reverberate through Ferguson and Brooklyn and Cleveland and Oakland and all the other race-toxic communities nationwide.”

    “If there is no justice for police-murdered civilians there can be no peace.”

    Thx 4 sharing

    Lmao...

    The problem is the expectations...

    You expect that politicians, regardless of color will defend you
    You expect justice in a system shown to be systemically racist
    You believe getting the right people into government will change the government. ..

    I wrote in the last threads that this will happen again, and again, and again, and again to nauseum because the system never changed in the first place.

    so I will spell out the obvious
    -the only way which you are going to get a change in government and it's policies will require the removal of every politician born before the seventies... only because these politicians spent an entire lifetime of a world in a lens which is not compatible with modern sentiment and evidence, and continue to create policies based in antiquated times...
    - you must replace the police departments within said minority entrenched areas with private police forces
    -all police shootings investigated in federal courts
    - you must make all campaign funding illegal, grant all politicians free campaign slots in the media.
    -cctv... everywhere as in the UK... you have no expectations of privacy in public.

    Eric Holder Re-Joins Law Firm Connected to Sub-Prime Crisis That Eroded Black Wealth

    by Yvette Carnell

    Eric Holder’s old law firm kept his office warm while the U.S. Attorney worked his “temp gig” as top cop, Salon.com reports. Last year, while
    many African-American armchair hacks were writing Holder’s magnanimous biography, Holder was buying a condo only feet away from the firm
    where he was planning to return. A firm that played a key role in eroding generational black wealth.
