Holder Orders Federal Autopsy on Brown
Daily Beast, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/17/2014 12:09:34 PM

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

Mr Holder, are you going to suppress toxicology reports?

The first autopsy didn´t prove that the policeman was a white supremacist - -

Has Holder ever paid this much attention to a white person shot in an altercation with a black policeman?

Good. You can obviously tell from photos and video of the dead body, there were zero gunshot wounds to the back. Not one speck of blood on the back of that pure white shirt. You can´t change that fact.

Had the "boy" been shot in the back, the officer would likeky already have been arrested.

The reason he has not been arrested yet is likely because the evidence leans heavily in the officers´ direction. They are grasping at straws now, likely digging for anything, any one person willing to claim he was "racist", so they can level charges federally, like they attempted to do with Zimmerman.

If they manage to make it to a Grand Jury, it is likely they will return a No Bill. This is why they are attempting to install a special prosecutor, exactly like they did to Zimmerman, to bypass the Grand Jury, and arrest him.

Right now, the only thing that will quell the racists is an arrrest. After watching the New Black Panthers inciting violence, chanting, "What do we want?" "Darren Wilson!" "How do we want him?" "DEAD!", even arrest may not be enough.

This is a sad, sad, time for America, when the pResident Chief of Police now is heading up an investigation, and all agencies "will be reporting to me".

Typical over reaching yet, still very shocking.

The racism and lynching of a white police officer must now happen, even if the pResident has to do it.

I, for one, am glad for the multiple autopsies. This way, we know for certain they cannot lie. This will make 3, so far. One by the local authorities, one demanded by Sharptoon, and now this one.

After seeing the level of incompetence of the Ferguson and St. Louis County police departments over and over in press conferences and actions I would want an independent autopsy of a family member of mine, too. The Ferguson Police Chief gave 3 different stories of the same event in one day. It´s the Keystone Kops and who knows if the coroner is any better at his job.

This may in fact be the third autopsy conducted on big Mike. As the county did one, then yesterday it was announced that the family was having a private autopsy conducted by a famed pathologist, and now Holder has ordered a federal autopsy.

# 5, expanded question should be: Has Holder ever paid this much attention to anyone shot by a black? See "3 murdered, 16 shot in Chicago on Saturday" story. There will not be an FBI investigation of these almost daily shootings in Chicago. Nor will Holder call the parents of these victims. Nor will Holder order a federal autopsy of the 3 shot to death. Such actions all occurred in Ferguson, but will never occur in Chicago, Newark, Camden or other US city plagued with black-on-everyone violence. Holder has made it clear that he doesn´t care about the violence perpetrated by "my people".

In September, expect Holder to announce a comprehensive diversity settlement with the Ferguson and most likely St Louis and Missouri state police departments. Quotas for hiring xx% minority police officers will be agreed upon along with promotions of exisiting black police officers to senior officer roles. Diversity agreement will occur even though the police officer involved is exonerated.

The DOJ autopsy is being conducted
" at the request of the family ".
What an insult to the pathologist who performed the original autopsy.
Who is paying for this ?
If the family demands that Officer Wilson be arrested and imprisoned and then executed , will Holder comply ?
Trials and evidence are no longer relevant in this administration.
When are we going to have that conversation about race that
Holder said we were too afraid to have ?

What is this "murder" feces???!! IIRC, this "innocent" teen robbed a convenience store (caught on video) and then strolled down the middle of the street, blocking traffic. When the officer tried to confront him about his actions since he matched the description of the earlier perp, he fought with the officer, pushed him back into the police car and went for his gun which resulted in the officer defending his life with deadly force.

One thug meets the Darwin theory head-on.

"Murder´ jumped out at me. That was the first thing. Yes , rush to judgment there on the part of the Beast trying to incite the masses. Also , around here our firearms classes are aimed at stopping an attack by drugged up angry thieves that don´t know they have been hit. Two to the chest one to the head in case of zombies.
Maybe that is why autopsy results are being played around with. DOJ can try but the street cops know what they are dealing with. I don´t like the militarization of Police but zombies are out there.
Crystal, spice and other drugs are detectable. The tape shows anger management problems for sure. I remember the time a family member OD on Angel dust. We never thought we would get him back. Glad he had blue cross master medical. Another one just got busted and jailed fu on spice. He totaled his car, left the scene, kicked down an apartment door, ran through it, leaped out the upstairs porch and broke both legs. Cops finally caught up with him. My extended family has given me way too much exposure to drug culture. I won´t rush to judgment but have a gut feeling this young man was drugged up. Obama is responsible for ruining the job market and pulling in more illegals to take jobs away from our own people. JMHO

With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving.

There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech.

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage.

Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production.

Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State.

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

"I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety.

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
