AG Holder 'Sorry' and 'Angry' About 'Gun Violence' Killing Law Enforcement Officers
CNS NEWS ^ | 3/6/12 | Susan Jones

Posted on 03/06/2012 2:51:40 PM PST by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) - Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday expressed sorrow and anger at the escalating number of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, including at least 71 killed by "gun violence."

"We can, and we must, do even more" to protect law enforcers," Holder told the spring meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General in Washington.

"Just as I promised last year, protecting the safety of our law enforcement officers has been, and will continue to be, a key area of focus for the Justice Department," Holder said.

Holder noted that 177 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty last year, a 16 percent increase from 2010. "And 71 of these officers were killed by gun violence," he said.

"I am sorry – and, quite frankly, I am angry – to report that, since the beginning of 2012, we have mourned the loss of an additional 24 law enforcement officers."

He should be held for treason, nailed to a sign on the US side of the border facing south, with a big target painted on his chest.

And yet if Holder were to be pulled over by a cop for speeding he would be screaming, “F$#@you you cracker pig! Do you know who I am, pig? DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM!!!?”

I think you’ll find there are a lot more than 71 unarmed innocent civilians shot each year by cops.

And the cops walk away with no penalty... I think that the cops brought much of this on themselves. You live by the sword, you die by the sword.

He must be talking about Mexican police officers. Only 38 police officers died last year, 16 by gunfire.

"We can, and we must, do even more" to protect law enforcers," Holder said..."

You can start by not giving guns to Mexican drug gangs, you sanctimonious, hypocritical, lying bag of dog crap.

Are the republicans still doing anything about this? Is Holder going to get away with F&F?

So stop giving the drug cartels and their handmaidens guns, a.h.!!!

My intense loathing and hatred for d***Holder increases by leaps and bounds.

Where is this going to end? And how?

If people have the right to defend themselves and stop allowing government authorities to co op that right, we don’t need to live in a police state. Less LEO an more personal responsibility will solve the problem.

"We can, and we must, do even more" to protect law enforcers

Even more than WHAT to protect cops?

Do even more thannnnn, saaaaaay.....avoid exporting thousands of machine-guns to drug-dealing Narco-Kingpins..?THAT is how they will bend over backwards...?

Imagine Rodney King has just been beaten and there's deeeeep outrage. Imagine further that the LAPD Chief intones in public,

"We cherish diversity, make the safety of all black folks our VERY highest priority, and will work ***EVEN HARDER*** to demonsrate that we like them...."

Just imagine the outrage. Just imagine it.

That's a great analogy but I would add this...

Imagine that there was loads of documentation and sworn testimony from officers that it was official policy to beat the snot out of black drivers. In fact officers would be punished if they didn't.

That's more like Fast and Furious.

So let me see if I have this right. When questioned about his operation that illegally exported thousands of guns to criminals in a neighboring country, resulting in the deaths of hundreds in both countries, Holders response boils down to "Guns are bad. Democrats are the solution." Is that about right? Does he actually think anyone's going to take that seriously?
