Justice Dept Decides Guilt By Association Is Awesome, To Probe Ferguson PD
Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for an investigation into the IRS scandal, among others
(Washington Post) Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. this week will launch a broad civil rights investigation into the Ferguson, Mo., Police Department, according to two federal law enforcement officials.
The investigation, which could be announced as early as Thursday afternoon, will be conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division and follow a process similar to that used to investigate complaints of profiling and the use of excessive force in other police departments across the country, the officials said.

Holder’s decision will represent the Obama administration’s most aggressive step to address the Ferguson shooting, which set off days of often-violent clashes between police and demonstrators in the streets of the St. Louis suburb.
The federal officials said the probe will look not only at Ferguson but also at other police departments in St. Louis County. Some, like Ferguson, are predominantly white departments serving majority-African-American communities, and at least one department invited the Justice Department to look at its practices. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the pending inquiry.
They’re on a fishing expedition. Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised by this apparent “guilt by association” and “guilty till proven innocent” approach
The number of police department reviews the Justice Department has initiated under Holder for possible constitutional violations is twice that of any of his predecessors. At least 34 other departments are under investigation for alleged civil rights violations.
Certainly, some of those departments may just be guilty. However, once the Civil Rights office at the DOJ gets involved, they will find guilt, much like the inquisitors during the Spanish Inquisition. Here’s the perfect comment at the article webpage
A complete investigation of every member of the police force needs to occur….. I’m sure it’s already begun.
We need to see affiliations, Facebook links and contacts.
Let’s find out how many white peace officers are reading right wing narratives and / or members of the klu – klutz- klan.
Anyone else see the problems with that? Guilt by association. Privacy violation. And so much more.
