Holder scores two more trophies for the wall.
Two cops were shot in Ferguson last night:
Two police officers were shot early Thursday morning outside the Ferguson, Mo., police department, according to a police spokesman.This is the fruit of Eric Holder's grandstanding.
A 32-year-old officer from nearby Webster Groves was shot in the face and a 41-year-old officer from St. Louis County was shot in the shoulder, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said at a news conference, according to the Associated Press.
Both officers were taken to a local hospital, where Mr. Belmar said they were conscious, the AP reported, adding that Mr. Belmar didnt have further details about their conditions but described their injuries as serious.
It's unfortunate that even the Journal paints an inappropriate picture:
Ferguson gained national attention in August after one of the citys police officer shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, setting off protests across the country and a national debate about race and policing.Brown was killed after robbing a store and then attacking Wilson.
A Grand Jury found no cause to charge Officer Wilson and a Federal probe could find no reason to charge Wilson either. The entire "hands up don't shoot" meme was debunked.
That left Holder steaming. He wants to able to bring civil rights violations charges at his whim. Listening to him one could see that he would have liked to bring civil rights violation charges against Republicans who opposed him and Barack Obama.
Andrew McCarthy remarks that the investigation of Darren Wilson was race-based and nothing more.
Holder needed a pound of flesh. He needed a head to mount on the wall. He got them.
So he decided to condemn the entire Ferguson police Department in a report. The Police Chief, the Town Manager and a judge resigned.
Holder's report is nonsensical:

People had better wake the hell up.
The police were shot because ? Well they are police, a hate crime against the police doing their jobs.
COP LIVES DO MATTER !
The police will put up their hands up in the air and shout “ POLICE LIVES DO MATTER ! PATROL YOUR OWN STREETS ! “ ...
I notice the car in the photo is St Louis County...I
imagine the Ferguson PD and Municipal court have lost a bit of legitimacy in this witch hunt, and the county sheriff has to come in and be hall monitor.
IOW - just a notch below chaos, courtesy of the feral government.

It was not enough that the chief of police had just resigned. It was not enough that a local judge had quit. It was not enough that the Department of Justice had exonerated former officer Darren Wilson. Nothe mob, told by President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder that Ferguson was still guilty of racism, wanted justice.
Obama and Holder have been inciting racial violence since the very beginning of Obamas presidency. This is the most racist president in the history of U.S.
After expending hundreds of thousands dollars trying to condemn Officer Darren Wilson, the Justice department had to exonerated the police officer of all the false charges that the race pimps tried to input on him. Will Obama apologize to Darren Wilson for his public character assassination of Mr. Wilson because he fulfilled his duty of defending the city from the attacks of criminal thugs?
The financier of the “community activists” from Chicago who fomented the shootings of the two Ferguson’s Leos, was George Soros.
