Holder Orders Federal Autopsy on Brown
Daily Beast, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/17/2014 12:09:34 PM

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

Mr Holder, are you going to suppress toxicology reports?

The first autopsy didn´t prove that the policeman was a white supremacist - -

The FIX is in.
Has Holder ever paid this much attention to a white person shot in an altercation with a black policeman?

Good. You can obviously tell from photos and video of the dead body, there were zero gunshot wounds to the back. Not one speck of blood on the back of that pure white shirt. You can´t change that fact.

Had the "boy" been shot in the back, the officer would likeky already have been arrested.

The reason he has not been arrested yet is likely because the evidence leans heavily in the officers´ direction. They are grasping at straws now, likely digging for anything, any one person willing to claim he was "racist", so they can level charges federally, like they attempted to do with Zimmerman.

If they manage to make it to a Grand Jury, it is likely they will return a No Bill. This is why they are attempting to install a special prosecutor, exactly like they did to Zimmerman, to bypass the Grand Jury, and arrest him.

Right now, the only thing that will quell the racists is an arrrest. After watching the New Black Panthers inciting violence, chanting, "What do we want?" "Darren Wilson!" "How do we want him?" "DEAD!", even arrest may not be enough.

This is a sad, sad, time for America, when the pResident Chief of Police now is heading up an investigation, and all agencies "will be reporting to me".

Typical over reaching yet, still very shocking.

The racism and lynching of a white police officer must now happen, even if the pResident has to do it.

I, for one, am glad for the multiple autopsies. This way, we know for certain they cannot lie. This will make 3, so far. One by the local authorities, one demanded by Sharptoon, and now this one.

After seeing the level of incompetence of the Ferguson and St. Louis County police departments over and over in press conferences and actions I would want an independent autopsy of a family member of mine, too. The Ferguson Police Chief gave 3 different stories of the same event in one day. It´s the Keystone Kops and who knows if the coroner is any better at his job.

This may in fact be the third autopsy conducted on big Mike. As the county did one, then yesterday it was announced that the family was having a private autopsy conducted by a famed pathologist, and now Holder has ordered a federal autopsy.

# 5, expanded question should be: Has Holder ever paid this much attention to anyone shot by a black? See "3 murdered, 16 shot in Chicago on Saturday" story. There will not be an FBI investigation of these almost daily shootings in Chicago. Nor will Holder call the parents of these victims. Nor will Holder order a federal autopsy of the 3 shot to death. Such actions all occurred in Ferguson, but will never occur in Chicago, Newark, Camden or other US city plagued with black-on-everyone violence. Holder has made it clear that he doesn´t care about the violence perpetrated by "my people".

In September, expect Holder to announce a comprehensive diversity settlement with the Ferguson and most likely St Louis and Missouri state police departments. Quotas for hiring xx% minority police officers will be agreed upon along with promotions of exisiting black police officers to senior officer roles. Diversity agreement will occur even though the police officer involved is exonerated.

The DOJ autopsy is being conducted
" at the request of the family ".
What an insult to the pathologist who performed the original autopsy.
Who is paying for this ?
If the family demands that Officer Wilson be arrested and imprisoned and then executed , will Holder comply ?
Trials and evidence are no longer relevant in this administration.
When are we going to have that conversation about race that
Holder said we were too afraid to have ?

What is this "murder" feces???!! IIRC, this "innocent" teen robbed a convenience store (caught on video) and then strolled down the middle of the street, blocking traffic. When the officer tried to confront him about his actions since he matched the description of the earlier perp, he fought with the officer, pushed him back into the police car and went for his gun which resulted in the officer defending his life with deadly force.

One thug meets the Darwin theory head-on.

"Murder´ jumped out at me. That was the first thing. Yes , rush to judgment there on the part of the Beast trying to incite the masses. Also , around here our firearms classes are aimed at stopping an attack by drugged up angry thieves that don´t know they have been hit. Two to the chest one to the head in case of zombies.
Maybe that is why autopsy results are being played around with. DOJ can try but the street cops know what they are dealing with. I don´t like the militarization of Police but zombies are out there.
Crystal, spice and other drugs are detectable. The tape shows anger management problems for sure. I remember the time a family member OD on Angel dust. We never thought we would get him back. Glad he had blue cross master medical. Another one just got busted and jailed fu on spice. He totaled his car, left the scene, kicked down an apartment door, ran through it, leaped out the upstairs porch and broke both legs. Cops finally caught up with him. My extended family has given me way too much exposure to drug culture. I won´t rush to judgment but have a gut feeling this young man was drugged up. Obama is responsible for ruining the job market and pulling in more illegals to take jobs away from our own people. JMHO

On Sept. 12th, Jennifer Whalen, a 39-year-old mother of three in the rural town of Washingtonville, Pa., went to jail to begin serving a 9-to-18-month sentence. Whalen’s crime was, in effect, ordering pills online that her older daughter took in the first several weeks of an unplanned pregnancy, when she was 16, to induce a miscarriage. The medication was a combination of mifepristone (formerly called RU-486) and misoprostol. The drugs have been available from a doctor with a prescription in the United States since 2000 and are used around the world to induce miscarriage. Recent research increasingly suggests that early

There’s been lots of debate lately in housing circles about the impact of student debt on home ownership. Now there’s a new study out that attempts to put a number on that impact: 414,000. That’s how many home sales will not happen this year because of high levels of student loan debt, according to a report from John Burns Consulting, an Irvine-based firm that advises home builders. That’s equal to about 8% of all home sales, and enough to dent the housing industry by $83 billion a year. The report estimates that the number of households under age 40 that

The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Gen. Michael Nagata is promising to build a new force to destroy ISIS, but lawmakers worry he has been given an impossible mission. As lawmakers prepared to take a risky and fateful vote on Obama’s plan to train and equip the Syrian rebels, the man who assured them it could be done was Gen. Michael Nagata, Obama’s point man for the mission to build an ISIS-killing army in Syria. There are skeptics both inside and outside the government who doubt Obama’s new plan to arm the Syrian rebels can work. First of all, the administration has said for years that the moderate
