This is what the Ferguson fiasco boils down to.
In the wake of an FBI warning that the looming grand jury decision in the Michael Brown shooting case could lead to attacks on police officers and public buildings, two guests on Sean Hannity’s “Hannity” program Tuesday placed the blame for impending violence implicitly on the man in charge of the FBI itself, Attorney General Eric Holder.
And a third guest made it clear that any grand jury decision against indicting officer Darren Wilson in the shooting won’t be considered “justice” — not even if it was based on the truth.
Watch as Derk Brown, founder of the Justice for Mike Brown Foundation, “explains” himself.
And check out this exchange from later in the program.
Here’s the background:
In a bulletin issued Friday, according to Fox News, the Federal Bureau of Investigation warned that:
“The announcement of the grand jury’s decision … will likely be exploited by some individuals to justify threats and attacks against law enforcement and critical infrastructure. This also poses a threat to those civilians engaged in lawful or otherwise constitutionally protected activities.”
Why are the Ferguson protestors so immune to the facts of the case? Why is the likelihood of violence so high?
Maybe it’s because they were encouraged by the attorney general and president of the United States to believe that what happened between police officer Darren Wilson and Brown on Aug. 9 was an unjustified killing of a black teenager by a white cop.
As Bill Johnson, executive director of the National Association of police officers told Hannity, the Justice Department’s “half-cocked” approach has been a “source of concern to our association and to police officers across the country.”
Holder’s Justice Department declared the outcome of the case from the beginning, he said.
“They didn’t send investigators only,” Johnson said. “They sent prosecutors.”
Retired New York Police Detective Bo Dietl it more strongly. In presuming to predict the outcome of the case before the grand jury heard all the evidence, he said, Holder and Obama had set the stage for the reaction to come.
“We have a court system … This is not the Wild West here, Sean. We have to wait for the justice system to react.”
Now, he said, “we have agitators that are just waiting for an excuse to steal, to set fires, to riot.”
And we know that’s true, because Eric Holder’s FBI told us so.
And that’s the truth.
