DOJ ‘Fesses Up, But Too Late For Officer Wilson And Business Owners In Ferguson *Open Thread*


The DOJ has finally completed its report targeting the Ferguson Police Department to determine just how racist they are. And, as you might guess, they declared that the Ferguson Police Department definitely targets blacks and that needs to change, as The Hill reported in this article (the title of which is incredibly misleading, as is the article, but there you have it):

[…] In what Holder called a “searing” report, federal investigators said that racial bias was behind the Ferguson Police Department’s disproportionate targeting of black citizens.

“In fact, our review of the evidence found no alternative explanation for the disproportionate impact on African American residents other than implicit and explicit racial bias,” he said. “No other basis.”

The report found that police and court officials in Ferguson and nearby municipalities used the police force to generate revenue rather than protect public safety by levying fines largely against African Americans. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

I am sure none of us is surprised by that, though these claims by the DOJ are also misleading as you will see below.

But it is what else they discovered that is important, and that is this: Officer Wilson did NOT act in a racially motivated manner. From Allahpundit at HotAir:

[…] My mistake. The DOJ — Eric Holder’s DOJ — is clear as can be that it thinks Wilson was justified in shooting Michael Brown. Rarely do I send you off somewhere to read something at length but trust me on this: Go here, scroll down to the bottom of numbered page 80, and keep reading through page 85. I assumed, I guess, that the report would focus more on attempts to sniff out racism in Wilson’s character (e.g., “Wilson’s friend Joe Schmo said he’d never observed any racist behavior by Wilson towards African-Americans”) as circumstantial evidence that he’d shot Brown out of animus than a careful analysis of the shooting itself replete with commentary on the credibility of various witnesses. What we got instead was a considered argument that not only is Wilson not guilty of a federal civil rights charge, he’s not guilty of a criminal offense of any sort. Had Wilson gone to trial, he could have submitted this as his motion to dismiss and the court might well have torpedoed the indictment before opening arguments. I’m bowled over. It reads like it was written by his own defense attorney. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Nope, there was nothing there to indicate that Officer Wilson acted in any way OTHER than that of pure self-defense. After all the attacks, the threats, the protests, the disruption, the taking sides by our RPESIDENT and ATTORNEY GENERAL, there was NOTHING there.

What is worse were all the protests based on a flat out lie, a ginned up story, a false meme, a narrative that was completely fabricated. And that would be the, “Hands Up! Don’t Shoot!” NEVER HAPPENED. It NEVER HAPPENED, people. All the outrage, all the destruction that occurred as a result of this claim, and it was nothing but a big lie.

BizPacReview has a great article on this very thing, with an excellent clip from Megyn Kelly’s show discussing this very thing:

Did you catch that? What Mark Hannah just claimed? Here it is from BizPacReview:

[…] Guest Mark Hannah, a Democratic strategist, also drew Kelly’s ire when he tried to re-write history by suggesting that those protests were not the result of “some misquote of ‘hands up, don’t shoot.’”

“That’s not true!” Kelly said, shockingly.

Fellow guest Dana Loesch concurred that protesters used the phrase as their mantra “for months and months.”

Hannah tried to shift away to a “broad pattern of racist policing,” but Kelly wasn’t having any part of it.

“That justifies this, Mark? she fired back. “What we saw, all these folks with their ‘hands up, don’t shoot,’ which did not happen!” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Mark Hannah is not going to let any facts get in the way of his opinions, that’s for sure.

I am so sick of this revisionist history by these Democrats like Hannah. It most definitely WAS because of the claims by these witnesses whose testimony was discredited by the DOJ report itself that ginned up all of this racial animus, these protests, the destruction of property, the disruption of cities ACROSS THE COUNTRY. And they were all based on a LIE, a flat out manufactured story by these people and elevated to these levels by Al Sharpton, PRESIDENT OBAMA, and ERIC HOLDER.

And now the DOJ report clears Officer Wilson of all of the claims made by these people. Yep. Sure enough does. Not for nothing, as Megyn Kelly points out, the Ferguson Police Department was POLICING ITSELF in terms of those officers the DOJ cited. So, yeah, as Kelly noted, they didn’t NEED the DOJ to come in there and to put them under a magnifying glass. They were already doing what they needed to do.

Here’s what I want to know. When are Democrats going to come out and say they were wrong? When are they going to get together and help rebuild all of these businesses that were completely destroyed because of the riots they helped ratchet up? When are they going to repay these communities across the country, including big cities, for all of the mayhem they caused, all the overtime for police officers, all the clean up required after these mobs moved through led by Obama’s BFF, Al Sharpton?? How are they going to make up for the loss of police officers’ lives as a result of the target put on their backs based on nothing but a big-ass lie?? When will they just admit they were WRONG without a “but” put in there (you know, “but there IS racism among cops…”)?

Yeah, I’m not holding my breath on that. They will move on to their next manufactured crisis to divide us, like they did with PM Netanyahu’s speech. That’s how they roll.

At least that’s what I think. How about you?

    Great post Amy,
    We know who the raaaacists are, and Holder is the head guy. 👿

      I keep wondering what in the hell is TAKING so long on this. They have known this abt Cummings for a while. Just the other day, Rep. Chaffetz was talking abt Cummings and taking him to Utah so they could get to know each other better. He said how much he likes him, though they disagree on much.

      But what I do not get is WHY this man has been able to continue in his position of power given the presence of these emails. WTH???

      I might add, I remember when the Dems beat up on Engelbrecht for making the claim abt Cummings during her testimony. They all circled the wagons around him, protecting him after he used the most powerful agency in the country to target a private citizen.

        It is remarkable how some people seem to believe that certain groups no longer have to be held to the same laws as others. This making of criminals to be the victims is truly astonishing to me. I simply do not understand how this has happened, from illegal aliens to men attacking police officers. It makes no sense to me.

    You did an excellent job on this Amy…Sadly its all about the money, for Mike Brown’s is still going to file civil lawsuits against Darren Wilson and Ferguson. Guess who the Lucky lawyers are Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump.
    Sadly I fear that events like this are going to keep happening all over the country, so that someone can get rich off their Thug relative. Unfortunately it appears that the Crump Lawyers are behind these law suits and is making the biggest bucks probably.
    Never thought I’d see something like this in my area but it is in my area now.

    Crump is now screwing up the Tri-Cities Area in SE Washington due to a shooting of an Illegal Hispanic. The Illegal was so feared by his wife that she had a restraining order against him. The people in the area felt so threatened by Antonio that they called in police to assist. This was not the Illegal’s first run-in with Law Enforcement, and the general public.
    Even after Antonio(The Illegal) was tazed and asked many times to comply, he kept threatening and throwing softball size rocks at officers hitting two officers. Due to the actions and reactions to be being tazed, many feel that he was most likely on his favorite drug Meth.
    Not only does this mean that Antonio was committing several crimes, but several Felony crimes.
    Oh and almost everyone supporting Antonio say that thrown rocks don’t hurt..Thrown rocks do hurt, inflict serve injuries and even kill!!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thank you so much, Kin – I appreciate that!

      Can you believe that abt Mike Brown’s family?! Good grief, those people need to let it go. I mean, I know they are still grieving and all, but it could not be any clearer that their son brought this on himself. And considering the way his mother acted toward HER mother, abt which they were talking today, too. That is to say, I think some parenting, or lack thereof, had a role in how he conducted himself. Rather than them acknowledging that his death was the direct result of his own criminal behavior, they want to blame someone else. Sad, especially since they are prolonging the agony of how this has affected Darren Wilson’s life.


      And yeah, what the hell abt the illegal Hispanic who had committed crimes. Good grief. Since when have people not understood that if someone commits a criminal act, and refuse to comply, that something bad might happen to them?!? They are CRIMINALS, people! That word in and of itself should tell them something.

      People. Sheesh.

    Interesting Article, which I fear is true.
    America On the Brink of Losing Constitutional Form of Government Forever
    The rule of law is in grave danger, as federal regulators use ever thinner legal pretexts to enable vast public policy changes without votes by our elected representatives. In a span of just seven days, the FCC declared the Internet a public utility, Congress acceded to DHS implementing executive amnesty, the president used a veto threat to protect the NLRB’s ambush elections rule, and the Supreme Court’s four liberals showed they are not just willing but enthusiastic to allow the IRS to ignore the plain language of Obamacare. A great week for regulators, but a terrible week for everyone else.

    Expecting liberals and the Democrat “strategists” to tell the truth or admit wrong is a forlorn hope. I have come to the conclusion that they care nothing for honesty or ethical behavior. It saddens me that so many fellow citizens accept this behavior. We were once a nation of laws and most of us believe in honesty and honor. I fear all too many citizens have compromised both for some “freebies”. I wouldn’t have believed that could be true. I was naïve and the Dems with their low expectations of Americans were right. How sad that is.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Oh, I know – you are absolutely right, Marge. I guess it is my hope springing eternal that truth and honesty will out. And no doubt, it is still a little hard for me to believe that the behavior of people in the party I belonged to most of my life are so corrupt, so dishonest, so low, and that the things Reps have said for years abt them (and Hillary Clinton) are actually true.

      Sadly, I think you are right abt the “freebies” and people selling out for them. It still amazes me how much people do not get that the more the get, the less someone else has PAYING for it… (Nice to *see* you, friend!)

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Nice to “see” you too! I come everyday and read everything but am not always up to commenting. My brain seems to be functioning a little better but there are many aspects of this whole thing that have me perplexed. For instance, I have been a vegetarian for 15 years. Not anymore. I crave McDonalds cheeseburgers and fries – something I wouldn’t have touched with a 10 foot fork just a few months ago. I honestly don’t know who I am at times. I used to read for hours every day – now I can’t concentrate.

        I am hoping all this will pass and that much of it is simply the side effects of all the medications I’m on.

        I am explaining all this so that should I say something stupid or that doesn’t make sense you can perhaps understand that my mind isn’t up to snuff just now. And I hate it.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          I should have said, nice to hear from you! I appreciate that you still come by every day, and I totally understand not always feeling up to commenting.

          I know it has to be hard for you to have these changes going on, and I do hope they are temporary. That was quite the event you underwent, so it makes sense that it would take some time to recover from it, as well as dealing with the meds you have to take. It has to be frustrating for you, and I totally get that!

          How interesting that now your body is craving hamburgers! I haven’t had a burger in over 40 yrs now, so I can totally appreciate how weird that must be for you. But hey – if you r body is telling you that’s what it needs, that’s what it needs! Maybe it is the iron or something. In any event, as weird as it must be for you, I reckon you have to go with it.

          And hey – if you decide to keep eating burgers, I can send you some from our local farmer friends – totally organic, grass fed cattle who are treated humanely. Just give me the word! 🙂

    boehner and boxtox nan cut deal to use Netanyahu speech as cover to cut deal to fund backtrack’s executive amnesty

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Ugh, I am so sick of them doing this. I don’t get it. When the Reps were in the minority, the Dems ran roughshod all over them. Now the Dems are in the minority, and running roughshod all over the majority. There is a REASON why people put more Reps in Congress, and it wasn’t to capitulate to the DEMS all the time and allow the same damn programs to continue.

      The Daily Signal had a piece abt this, too:

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        What in the hell is wrong with Boehner? He has to know that most Republicans loathe Pelosi with a deep and abiding passion. Hell, even many Dems loathe her. I just don’t understand how even when the GOP wins, they lose.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          You got me. I just simply do not understand why the Reps continue to capitulate to the Dems all the time. They need to get out there and get their voices heard instead of letting the Dems run the news cycle. I know, easier said than done, but dang, they at least need to come out swinging, for heaven’s sake.
