Skip to comments.Holder Seeks To Prove Cops, Courts Racist

Racial Politics: Attorney General Eric Holder thinks the "overrepresentation" of blacks in jails somehow proves that cops and judges are racist. So he's collecting arrest data to lord over mayors.
Usually when an agency collects data, it waits to study the results before reaching conclusions. Not this Justice Department. It's gathering data to fit a preconceived notion that the criminal justice system is out to get young men of color.
Holder announced Monday that he's gathering records on police stops, searches and arrests to "curb racial bias" within big city police departments. He didn't say "possible" bias. He's convinced cops are targeting blacks.
Holder hopes the discrimination databases will cow police chiefs into reducing "racial disparities" in arrests. The goal of this policy, just like his anti-school discipline policy, is to coerce racial quotas for criminals.
The message to local officials is clear: Get your numbers right, or else.
"The overrepresentation of young men of color in our criminal justice system is a problem" and "an issue of fundamental fairness," Holder said. "Racial disparities contribute to tension in our nation generally and within communities of color specifically."
He says it's not "fair" that black men are arrested at six times the rate of white men. So with the help of the Rev. Al Sharpton, he has launched a $5 million program to investigate racial bias in five cities.
His prosecutors, in turn, will coordinate efforts to "implement and test strategies focused on procedural justice (fairness of outcomes), implicit bias (unconscious attitudes about race) and racial reconciliation (correcting historic discrimination)."
Sounds a lot like affirmative-action policing.

Eric Holder and Al Sharpton, two race hustling birds of a feather will investigate racial bias. What could go wrong with that?
Thus proving that the AG is a known completable racist hisself.

Lousy spell check alternative word prioritization.
Just wouldn't do to investigate whether blacks are involved in six times the crime, now, would it.
Just another facet of the Democrat party’s all-out drive to inflame racial tensions in hopes of motivating black voters in November.
At the rate Obama and Holder are going there will be full-scale race riots in many cities by October.
Wasn’t Holder a Black Panther?
I’m not sure about being a Black Panther but I’ve read he was in a militant black group in college.
He’s safe and fine in his galss house, the people most effected by this idiotic lawlessness of these cretans are the urban housing projects and poor nieghborhoods of the inner cities. They prey on thier own, they eat thier own they kill their own. Holder is an a## and amazingly enough the urban zombies see only color and are stupid enough to believe what this plantation owner sez. He’s doing a diservice to his own kind
Not sure either. But he is a life-long racist, no doubt about it.
But most of their victims are people of their own race, so Holder is seeking to increase the likelihood that law-abiding black citizens will be victims of a crime committed by a black person who would be locked up if not for the political pressure being applied.
Why is the federal Department of Justice entitled to second-guess the work of local law enforcement?
ll of the big city dem mayors are loving this.
So, on a per capta basis, whites commit as many crimes, but aren’t arrested or prosecuted?
Hey Rev Al and Holder—slavery has ended-—didn’t you get the memo?
equality mandates that the white/black crime rates are equal
I think that was Hitlery.
Well, Eric, we can let out all of the ones who didn’t do what they were charged with doing. There might be one.
Which would make room for you.
Well said...0bummer doesn’t have time to comment on that issue but he sure does have the time to comment on a basketball team owner allegedly making racist comments.
This ends with promotions for black cops and three year sentences for white girls that toss a cigarette out the window.
It’s not “fair” that blacks commit violent crimes at far more than six times the rate white people do.
The end result of letting thousands of violent black criminals out of prison or stopping them from getting there will be exponential numbers of law-abiding black and white citizens being victims of the criminals. The real truth is that young, black males are not being punished nearly as much as they should be. If more examples were set, the violent crime rate in the black parts of towns across the country might drop to acceptable levels. But no such restrictive moves will be made.
H. Clinton helped defend criminal Black Panthers when she was at Yale law school.
That was my point.
time to take out the trash.
They could likely “balance the books” by just ignoring black on black crime. I wonder how that would go over?
Yes, but she wasn’t herself a Black Panther. I don’t think whites could belong. Huey Newton supposedly said they, whites, could form a White Panthers to support the Black Panthers.
Close enough to be tarred with the wide brush.
I can't say what I really think...I might get banned...
A Discussion On Race, Crime And The Inconvenient Facts

About 90% of interracial violent crime in our nation is committed by blacks against whites. The black-on-white murder rate in the U.S. exceeds the white-on-black rate by about 2.5-to-1. The black-on-white assault and battery rate exceeds the corresponding white-on-black rate in this country by at least 10-to-1.
I had to scan for satire. None found. Hey Holder, tell “your people” to stop commiting so much crime!
