Attorney General Eric Holder canceled an appearance before the Oklahoma City Police Departments graduating cadet class Thursday amid angry protests over his scheduled visit.
Mr. Holder was expected to deliver remarks at the afternoon graduation ceremony, according to his official itinerary sent out by the Justice Department Thursday morning.
A Justice Department spokesman denied that the trip was canceled because of the possibility of a hostile reception. An early meeting at the Justice Department delayed Mr. Holders departure from Washington, causing him to miss the graduation ceremony, spokesman Brian Fallon said in an email.

I remember my high school girlfriend’s dad walking in on us one time. But his fury had nothing to do with me.

Impeached? He should be INDICTED!”........
You left off the most important parts, “Convicted and Imprisoned”.

Well it’s obvious Kansans and Oklahomans are racists for protesting the appearances of black people (Moochie and Holder) at events in their states. /s
