Ferguson mayor blasts Holder after cops shot

WASHINGTON – Attorney General Eric Holder had decided to tag the city of Ferguson, Missouri, and its police department as racist before the Department of Justice had finished its investigation, Mayor James Knowles said in an exclusive interview Thursday with WND.

“There is no way they were going to hold Darren Wilson to the standard of federal civil rights violations,” Knowles said a day after two Ferguson police officers were shot during more nighttime mayhem in the city. “They said that early on. They kept saying the standard was too high. They said, ‘Don’t get your hopes up.’ And so they didn’t say anything about Darren Wilson, but they came out and stuck it to us. I think those cards were laid back in September.”

Knowles noted that Holder was always quite open about his intention.

“Eric Holder has to be a terrible poker player because he tells his hand before it’s dealt,” he continued. “He came out and said that he was going to come after the Ferguson police department within a couple of days of the shooting.”

The outcome of the pre-investigation designed to determine whether a full-scale probe was even necessary, seemed predetermined, Knowles explained.

“They actually announced the investigation the same day I did my exit interview with them,” he recalled. “They told me it would be at least a week. Eric Holder had made the announcement before I got home from that interview with the DOJ. He had made up his mind he was going to come after us.”

That investigation resulted in a Department of Justice report charging the Ferguson police department with racist practices. Knowles suggested the city of Ferguson is going to fight the federal government’s demand for a consent decree and claimed there were flaws and misinformation in the findings.

“The stories that were recounted by the DOJ in the report … many of those were never verified or got the officer’s side of the story,” he said. “I think that in and of itself is cause for some concern. There’s a lot of that, honestly, and we’re putting together right now [cases] … where there’s very specific information about things they reported in that report they neglected to bring up.”

Asked for an example, Knowles noted the Department of Justice condemns the arrest of a “kid at the school” without mentioning the delinquent in question had pushed a pregnant, African-American principal to the ground in the middle of a fight.

“This principal … is furious right now, that it was portrayed that way.”

  1. The racists Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder
    created a climate of racial division and anti-police sentiment in the country.
    When two white police officers were shot in Ferguson they claim to be outraged
    and upset about the shooting, but it was insincere, because it was they who
    fomented this strife. Hussein Obama did not take the time to speak on the
    shooting, but did send out a tweet. I guess, Obama was working on his March
    Madness basketball picks. PATHETIC!
