Extortion and Threats – Attorney General Eric Holder Demands Ferguson Police Department Stop Holding Minorities Accountable For Laws…

As CEO of the Grievance Industry, and also head of all law enforcement, Attorney General Eric Holder threatens to file a lawsuit against the Ferguson Police Department if the department does not stop holding black residents accountable to laws.

potus and Holder president obama and eric holder

Holder is essentially threatening to try and get a “consent decree” established which would require the Ferguson Police to have complete Civil Rights Division oversight for the duration of the decree.

If Holder proceeds, and the Ferguson PD does not back down, you can expect the DOJ to use the tenuous legal concept of “Disparate Impact” to advance their charges.

The issue(s) outlined, according to CNN:

[…] Among the issues expected to be part of the Justice Department’s lawsuit are allegations made in a recent lawsuit filed by a group of low-income people who claimed officers in Ferguson and nearby Jennings targeted minorities with minor traffic infractions and then jailed them when they couldn’t pay fines.

The Justice Department action would ask for court supervision of changes at the Ferguson Police Department to improve how police deal with the minority communities they are supposed to protect. (read more)​

            Please remember…this is the local government that the citizens of ferguson voted for only a year or so ago. They got the government they voted for…and it’s been a good city government by all accounts of than a lying federal government and a lying media.

            What I do find that’s either ironic, illegal or downright interesting is that these same black folks show up to vote at a 110% of registered voter rates for obama…but only 13% for the local government that has much more control over their daily lives.

            Somewhere in those figures lays a lie of incredible proportions that is undermining America!

        I wouldn’t blame those cops if the whole force walked off the job. Then let Holder put his people there to enforce the law and see how that works out for them. The sad thing is the Chief is not young and would lose his retirement if he walked off. He probably needs that to live off of when he retires. This is a personal vendetta with Holder and is despicable. He should have to have a bunch of thugs spit in his face and say F you.

    While I don’t trust Holder any farther than I could throw him, isn’t it premature to call it extortion and a demand to “stop holding black residents accountable”? Although Officer Wilson was cleared of wrongdoing in shooting Michael Brown, that doesn’t mean the department is squeaky clean in other respects. The kinds of abuses that Holder is alluding to do happen, cf., Miami Gardens, FL. We haven’t seen the evidence yet regarding Ferguson.

        I’m referring to the Miami Gardens police department that was created in 2008. In the five years following, it stopped over 50,000 people (around half the population) for a total of nearly 100,000 stops. Miami police made fewer than 4,000 stops in the same period. It appears that it was a scheme to get federal money to support all that police activity. So I think it’s a good example of how police can abuse citizens to raise revenue for a city.

          Of course police abuse happens some places sometimes, and traffic fines can be a part of that. HOWEVER scum like Sharpton and Holder try to pretend it unfairly impacts “minorities”… when who it really impacts is the POOR of any color.

          “allegations made in a recent lawsuit filed by a group of low-income people who claimed officers in Ferguson and nearby Jennings targeted minorities with minor traffic infractions and then jailed them when they couldn’t pay fines.”

          Yep, there you have it. It’s only “minorities” who have trouble paying fine. It seems black lives, and ONLY black lives matter.

            And here’s one of the plaintiff’s in the lawsuit, lol…

            “Herbert Nelson, 26, has been jailed at least four times in Ferguson for being unable to pay old fines and court costs. He has been ticketed for charges ranging from misdemeanor possession of marijuana to failing to use a turn signal.”

            Hmmm, so this repeat offender can obviously afford to purchase recreational drugs but he is ‘unable’ to pay a comparably small fine for a minor traffic violation…???

            And isn’t it ironic that the same Eric Holder who not too long ago was threatening states that legalized marijuana and refused to enforce federal drug laws is now threatening a community for enforcing the law…

      people break laws, people don’t pay fines related to those offenses, people end up in jail. Pretty simples. Oh, there are many who are minorities? And this of course has to mean police are unfairly targeting them… because non-minorities are allowed to break the law with impunity (nevermind there’s no actual proof this is the case… it’s well understood it must be because… well, white privilege or something).

      Police are clearly targeting minorities! It’s just like that case I heard about this past summer where a white police officer targeted two young black men minding their own business while walking down the street….

      This is such a blatant example of the ideological rift between the unholy alliance of the Left + BGI + LaRaza + Muslim Botherhood + American flag burners, and the conservative, constitution supporting, law-abiding, taxes paying, employment valuing, America loving ‘non-protected classes’. Their standard MO in dealing with issues they know they are wrong on, or positions unsupportable under the laws, is to get in, do as much damage as they possibly can, benefit themselves unlawfully to the max, then scream bloody murder when righteousness catches up to them. Examples abound, from the MDSPD’s ‘disparate impact’- based non-reporting practices, through affirmative action and EEO regs in the workplace, to voter ID fraud and election stealing, just to name a few. Sadly, under Holder the DOJ has perfected the practice into an art form. That is why, before he leaves the post, he’s going to do maximum damage to our justice system, and by extension the fabric of society, all to furnish political cover for the net AG.

          Well in the dysfunction lottery your husband, son, brother’s record is wiped clean. You may be sighing in relief that the nightmare is over : no more beatings, restraining orders, posting bail, going to court, meeting with lawyers and filing paperwork.

          But the media wants your tears and your photographs of when your felon was a mere babe. There are tee shirts to be printed.

          Then the cash rolls in like a tsunami. Online donations, the church trash can tours, the rich celebrities offering you cash and prizes. The lawsuit is the big fish. Millions in pain and suffering for the s.o.b. being out of your life, and millions in compensation for the salary he might have made if he chose to get an education and work as a stock broker for the uber wealthy some time in the future. Or, of course, NASA.

          (If I ever lose my mind and get plugged by cops while robbing a bank, I want my husband to sue for the salary I might have made as a primary ballerina,as that was my childhood dream. And use my high school photograph on the tee shirts. I was a dish).

    Good grief, “minor traffic infractions” =

    Driving w/no insurance on automobile
    Driving w/no driver’s license
    Driving in an unregistered car
    Driving a stolen car
    Running a red light w/an open 6 pack & no valid ID & under 21 yrs. old
    Driving while impaired by drugs/alcohol

    It’s enough to make your head explode, does Holder think the tickets that ALL Americans now receive for the above violations daily whether AA or Caucasians should be waived also? Will Caucasians get the same privileges to break the law without consequences in Ferguson, if not, that’s RACIST!? Outrageous!

          Ah, yeah, the good old days when just alleging something was not automatically vested with the full trust of the law enforcement apparatus, just because race was intermingled into the complaint.. When you had to prove your accusations, instead of the accused having to prove his innocence. Seems like a very different world we live in now.

          Wow, glad I didn’t live there. 😉 The thing in our town (well, one of the many towns I’ve lived in) was skateboarders. I swear the city’s budget was propped up largely by fines for “skateboarding in an unauthorized area”… which meant basically ANYWHERE other than your own property. I’m serious… even parking lots of vacant stores, along the edge of small streets, or other places like that. And these kids were TOTALLY non-violent, I heard of zero fights in the 5 or so years we lived there. And yet they were “the other” (a little like hippies were treated by some), and it was easy to grab a quick $20 or $30 from each of them… or their parents. Finally they got a gov’t that straightened that out, but not before causing tons of unnecessary problems.

    There are a lot of really good people in Ferguson. I would even venture to say the majority are. This is a diverse community that was on it’s way back.. Not thru the “evil” gentrification, but thru the hard work of the residents of many races. I have several very good friends that are active residents of Ferguson.
    I saw a lot of statistics about the population being 70ish% black, but the tickets being 80% or something.. I can’t remember the exact % and different sources have different numbers of course. I think it’s inaccurate to base tickets issued on resident %. Ferguson has 2 major thoroughfares that everybody, me included, use to cut thru. The majority of the surrounding cities are primarily AA, so OF COURSE, the cars traveling thru Ferguson are going to have a higher % of AA occupants, hence a higher % of tickets issued.
    For the record, we all know that they sit along New Florissant Road (on the “good side of town”) waiting to pull people over. I know when I go to my friends, or cut thru, I do not speed. I do not drive without a license or insurance or headlights.
    Additionally, those same other North County communities that are primarily AA and run by primary AA leadership are far, far worse about the traffic tickets. Saw a tweet tonight about Calverton Park’s night court with not enough seats so people lined up outside in sub-zero temps so folks leaving. And guess what… Ticketed for Failure to Appear for leaving.

    Disparate impact is the latest and could it be the last(?) desperate attempt to keep racism alive as an excuse for doing so much of what they do? Racism is really bad for black people. When people are focused on what other people are doing instead of what they should be doing for themselves, they are distracted from making their lives the best they can be.

    And the claim that the outcome proves racism makes huge presumptions about the factors that go into the black box of law and enforcement. To blankly say that because black people are disproportionately affected by laws and law enforcement that both must be racist is to presume that black people do precisely what everyone else does in every case. That simply isn’t the case.
