Holder (Obama) Insisted Brown Video Be Suppressed

From CBS News:

Feds opposed releasing Ferguson robbery video

August 16, 2014

Federal authorities opposed Friday’s release of a surveillance video showing a man resembling Michael Brown committing a robbery at a convenience store in Ferguson, Mo., CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports…

Notice the vague headline and lead. In fact, Mr. Holder’s name never appears once in the article. You see? It was just anonymous federal authorities who wanted this video suppressed.

This is exactly as we suspected. After all, there was no other earthly reason for the police to have held the video back. But Messrs. Holder and Obama didn’t want the policeman’s side of the story to get out. They wanted to foment as much outrage as possible.

In a just world, Messrs. Holder and Obama would be facing charges for inciting a riot.

Orr reports that, according to a U.S. law enforcement official, the Ferguson Police Department wanted to release the video Thursday…

The Justice Department asked Ferguson police not to release the video, believing that it would roil the community further, and were able to successfully prevent the video from being released Thursday, the U.S. law enforcement official said.

Friday’s release occurred over the objection of federal authorities, the official said.

A copy of the video has also been in the possession of federal investigators, and there weren’t any plans by the investigators to release it, the official said.

What other information is withheld from the public by the ‘federal authorities’?

    One has to ask, “Who’s to gain here?—What’s the upshot and end-result of all this manipulation?”

    And, Americans, largely unwilling to be cynical, not only don’t ask themselves the questions, but if they do, fail horribly in arriving at the correct answers.

    The final bell will sound when race riots permeate our daily lives. Just like in the 60’s when all the hippies and dippies were out making a mess of things over much the same issues. It’s a kind of sick, demented nostalgia that has them longing for “achieving results” like they did in the 60’s.

    However, now, as then, the perpetrators of the violence are themselves criminals. They are not “freedom fighters” or even in the least way “noble” or “patriotic”. They are thugs.

    They are losers.

    Worse, they are angry losers. And, as has been mentioned in the conservative media, not native to Ferguson; They have come in from other areas to foment violence and lawlessness.

    As for the Mr Brown who was an arrogant, dope-dealing, violent bully with a room-temperature IQ, there is no one in the world who will be able to present evidence to the contrary.

    Did he deserve to get shot and killed? Maybe in this instance, no. However, it was just a matter of time. Live life like that and eventually, you have shortened it by your own hand.

    Naturally, the media and the race-baiters want to use this to exemplify how slavery still exists in the US. (Could there be any assertion that’s less true in the entire universe?) Because there’s money to be made off of it!

    I read an account last week, I can’t seem to locate the news source but I believe it was a St. Louis local paper which stated that Brown’s buddy, Johnson, who was with Brown during the robbery and shooting, had confirmed to local, FBI, and DoJ investigators that Brown did commit the robbery. The whole line about “man resembling” Mike Brown is rubbish. Further, a “vetted caller” to Dana Loesch’s radio show recounted Officer Wilson’s side of the story, which is very different than what we’re hearing about little pookie on his way home from church choir. I’m sure the DoJ will try to suppress the toxicology report when it’s finished, as well.


    This one is going to be Traybong Martin v. 2. The “innocent little boy” will turn out to be a very large, dangerous, drug-abusing psychopath who was out to cause harm to people when he decided to beat on somebody who was armed. You would think that the DoJ and the rest of the race-baiters would have learned their lesson by now, but it looks like they are slow (or they don’t care). If the “authorities” had been up-front about this from the beginning, all the speculation would have been resolved. But we can’t have that, it might lead to reinforcing stereotypes and understanding that the shooting wasn’t “racially motivated.” Instead, they’re keeping the events intentionally vague so they can shape people’s beliefs before the facts get in the way of a good “racial outcry.” I suspect the democrat party will use this for fundraising and to try to increase voter turnout: “Be sure to vote, so more Republicans don’t get elected to shoot black people in the streets.” I can already hear Melissa Harris-Hyphen-Hyphen saying those words on MSLSD.
