Did DOJ Help Spark Riots By Agitating Ferguson Residents Over ‘White Privilege?’

 http://www.youngcons.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Riots-in-Ferguson-5.jpg

Apparently officials from the Obama Justice Department had a dual mission when they arrived in Ferguson, Missouri after the death of Michael Brown. Aside from investigating the incident, a separate group of Justice Department officials were there to amp up the outrage and sense of grievance of the inhabitants with meetings on topics like “white privilege.”

The DOJ’s Community Relations Service arrived in Ferguson purportedly to lessen the tension between protesters and city officials. But sources who attended the DOJ’s private gatherings with Ferguson residents tell NRO that the Justice Department also sought to educate and question the community about the issues of white privilege and racism. The political nature of the Justice Department’s intervention in Ferguson may not be exclusive to its interactions with residents; it also might have affected its ongoing investigations into the Ferguson Police Department and officer Darren Wilson. {…}

‘Political nature?’ That couldn’t have anything to do with this, could it?

In an e-mail to NRO, a Justice Department spokeswoman said the meetings were designed to ease tension. The spokeswoman requested that NRO not quote her e-mails and added that it’s not the role of Community Relations Service officials to take a position on issues of race. Robert Driscoll, who from 2001 to 2003 was the DOJ Civil Rights Division’s chief of staff, says it’s not standard for these officials to educate the community about white privilege, and he called such action unfortunate. “Their function is supposed to be on the ground . . . and to talk to people and let them know what the processes are at the Department of Justice,” he says. “The hope is that it’s a way to channel public sentiment to avoid civil unrest.” Rioters still managed to burn down much of the town in the aftermath of the grand jury’s decision not to indict Wilson, but Knowles says he thinks the Community Relations Service’s involvement has been constructive nonetheless.

However, the mayor says he thinks the DOJ’s investigators misled him from their very first encounter, and he has concerns about DOJ’s ability to conduct a fair investigation. He says the investigators, including Jonathan Smith, the Civil Rights Division’s special litigation chief, told him that the purpose of their first meeting was to determine whether an investigation was necessary. But by the time Knowles got home from the meeting, Attorney General Eric Holder was on television announcing the investigation. “Clearly the decision was already made before they even met with me,” he says.

In other words, officials in the Department of Justice weren’t trying to cool down what was already an inflamed situation…they were trying to turn up the heat.After which, of course, rioters and looter burned down a fair amount of the city. And why not? They had a license..it was payback for ‘white privilege!’

 http://c10.nrostatic.com/sites/default/files/uploaded/pic_giant_081614_SM_Ferguson-Looting-G.jpg

Just imagine how much anguish is behind those words, ‘rioters and looter burned down a fair amount of the city.’ People had businesses and property they had scrimped and saved for years to build and establish destroyed because of an attempt to gin up black turnout to keep Democrats in control of the senate.

And the mayor’s statements about these meeting being constructive seem odd in view of his other statements that the meetings usually ended with a number of people ‘angry and screaming.’

In another interesting remark, Mayor Knowles said that he thinks that Attorney General Eric Holder’s public statements have built up expectations of legal payback against police officers like Darren Wilson. Which, when they fail to do so, will unleash another wave of violent riots that are of course justified..no ‘justice’ no peace, remember?

But apparently the Department of Justice is using Ferguson as a template in other ‘investigations’, even when there’s no evidence any civil rights violations have been committed:

The Civil Rights Division’s pattern of behavior elsewhere indicates that Ferguson is not the only community receiving special attention from the Justice Department. During the past five fiscal years, the Civil Rights Division has opened more than 20 “pattern or practice” investigations into police departments throughout the country — such as the one involving the Ferguson Police Department — which is more than twice as many as were opened in the previous five years, according to a statement from Holder on Thursday. These investigations are conducted to determine whether local law-enforcement officers have engaged in a pattern or practice that deprives people of rights protected by U.S. law or the Constitution.

While a grand jury decided not to indict Wilson in November, the Department of Justice seems to be hunkering down for the long haul. Holder pledged in a Post-Dispatch op-ed published earlier this summer that, “long after the events of Aug. 9 [Brown’s death] have receded from the headlines, the Justice Department will continue to stand with this community.” He did not say what it would take for DOJ to walk away from Ferguson, and that remains to be seen.

The force behind the Justice Department’s lasting presence in Ferguson may be Vanita Gupta, who was selected to lead the Civil Rights Division in October after heading up the American Civil Liberties Union’s efforts on Ferguson. Before beginning her new job, Gupta advocated for the Justice Department to take a more proactive role in its independent federal investigations and called for racial-bias training for forces that receive federal grants. A week ago, Holder announced his intention to “institute rigorous new standards — and robust safeguards — to help end racial profiling once and for all,” which were specifically directed at police. He said the Justice Department is preparing to implement these changes in the coming days. After announcing the changes, Holder went on to say, “In recent weeks, there have arisen great sparks of humanity, and hope, that illuminate the way forward.”

‘Sparks’ was perhaps a poor choice of words in view of what the DOJ helped ignite in Ferguson, but it could be that’s exactly what our attorney general means to encourage.

FOIA with teeth

Obama’s First ‘Executive Action’…. Ordering Mass Release Of Convicted Felons

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Q_4mbCuV7QE/TR-jW8PbCaI/AAAAAAAAJj4/dNwuDP8VOtc/s1600/1jamescole%2Bcopy.jpg

President Obama’s deputy Attorney General James Cole informed the New York State Bar Association yeterday that President Obama plans to use executive orders to commute the sentences of many felons he and the Justice Department consider “low-level” offenders like drug dealers, regardless of state or federal sentencing guidelines:

“A little over a month ago, the President commuted the sentences of eight men and women who were sentenced under severe — and out of date — mandatory minimum sentencing laws,” Cole said.

“But the President’s grant of commutations for these eight individuals is only a first step. There is more to be done, because there are others like the eight who were granted clemency. There are more low-level, non-violent drug offenders who remain in prison, and who would likely have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of precisely the same offenses today. This is not fair, and it harms our criminal justice system.

“To help correct this, we need to identify these individuals and get well-prepared petitions into the Department of Justice. It is the Department’s goal to find additional candidates, who are similarly situated to the eight granted clemency last year, and recommend them to the President for clemency consideration.”

Cole is all but ordering the various state bar associations to make lists of candidates for early release and write up their commutation petitions.

I’m certain you can translate this.

While Cole described described qualified clemency candidates as non-violent, low-level drug offenders not involved in gang or cartel activity, first-time offenders and those without what Cole called ‘an extensive criminal history’, the reality is that a great deal of leeway is going to be given on what constitutes ‘an extensive criminal history’, just as illegal aliens who are candidates for the President’s illegal ‘Dream Act’ amnesty or similar amnesty ready programs are to be forgiven for felonies like drunk driving, theft and certain types of assault.I mean really,how many first time offenders without lengthy rap sheets get long sentences? And I can also tell you from experience that most drug dealers indeed have a long criminal history (it’s not like you can get a degree and set up shop) and are connected to a gang, one of the various mafias or some organization involved in wholesale importing. Like any other retailer, drug dealers need to have a wholesaler supplying them with product. And anyone trying to sell without that connection as a freelancer usually ends up being warned once and being ‘invited’ to become an employee, as opposed to tasking a dirt nap – if he’s lucky.

The real trick here is to destroy policies like California’s 3 strikes that puts career criminals with 3 felonies in jail for life and have played a major role in cutting down on crime.And I don’t doubt in the least it will be administered mostly on racial grounds, given how our Justice Department works these days.

 

This won’t change things much in New York, where the citizenry has already been effectively disarmed. But I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it wasn’t also a move to try to gin up calls for gun confiscation in other places.

After all, a recently released felon isn’t going to go out and get a job at McDonald’s or Walmart, especially in the new Obama economy. Most of them are going to go back to the profession they know, armed with tools of that trade obtained from their connections.
