Holder hasn’t been prosecuting gun violations among urban blacks.
That’s right and, because he hasn’t, law enforcement’s ability to investigate and prosecute many other, more serious crimes by urban blacks has, IMHO, taken a big hit.
Threr’s a strong “no snitchiing” culture in many urban black areas. Prosecuting gun crimes by urban blacks would seriously cut into this culture because many of those crimes are illegal carrying of one sort or another. A prosecutor can easily prosecute illegal carry or possession since he only needs to prove the possession and that it was illegal, someting that can often be done with no more than police testimony. Then, once a Treyvon has been nailed, he can be squeezzed for information on lots of other crimes, thereby breaking down the “no snitching” custom and allowing many other crimes to be solved.
