US Attorney General Eric Holder has geared up and is apparently in full combat mode for a righteous war on violence against the young.
Yes, this is the same Eric Holder who was party to the shipment of guns to Mexico in the Fast and Furious scandal, which cost hundreds of Mexicans and Americans their lives. And this is the same scoundrel who is still in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over documents related to that awful debacle.
THAT Eric Holder has now audaciously appointed himself the great protector of the young and innocent, as reported at Reference 1:
Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday that the Justice Department is “resolved” to “combat violence involving or directed at young people,” announcing that it has opened an investigation into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin as it said it would last spring.
“We are resolved, as you are, to combat violence involving or directed at young people, to prevent future tragedies and to deal with the underlying attitudes, mistaken beliefs and stereotypes that serve as the basis for these too common incidents. And we will never stop working to ensure that – in every case, in every circumstance, and in every community – justice must be done,” Holder said at an event celebrating the 100th anniversary of the black sorority, Delta Sigma Theta in the nation’s capital.”
However, if Holder is really serious about combating youth violence, Eric the Contemptible will be well-advised to move his anti-violence efforts to the real capitol of youth violence—Chicago, Illinois.
Indeed, as reported at reference 2, while the State of Florida and the mainstream media worked tirelessly to make George Zimmerman pay for 400 years of slavery and all other grief and inconvenience ever heaped upon black people, the slaughter of the young and innocent continued unabated in President Obama’s hometown of Chicago:
NSNews.com) – In the 20-day period of the George Zimmerman trial, four minors – three teens and a five-year-old boy - were gunned down in Chicago, according to Homicide Watch Chicago, a Chicago Sun-Times publication, which details every murder that takes place in the city.
On June 28, five-year-old Sterling Sims was killed in a double murder that also claimed the life of his mother, 31-year-old Chavonne Brown. Both were shot in their apartment, and police believe the motive was robbery.
On July 1, 16-year-old Antonio Fenner was gunned down on the sidewalk next to the body of a 32-year-old man who had gang ties. No arrests were made, and no suspects have been named. Fenner’s mother believes her son was in the wrong place at the wrong time, because no one in her family knew the other victim or what Fenner’s association was to him.
On July 3, 14-year-old Damani Henard was murdered outside a high school. His body was found next a bicycle.
On July 9, 15-year-old Ed Cooper was shot and killed while spending time with friends at the park. A gunman got out of a black van and began firing as the boys ran away. Cooper was shot in the street and continued running to a vacant lot where he died.”
These tragic deaths should cause President Obama and AG Holder to stop playing politics with issues like repeal of the 2nd Amendment and focus instead on workable solutions!
