Holder Says Ferguson Shooter Was a ‘Damn Punk’

Attorney General Eric Holder responded quickly to news that two Ferguson police officers were shot Wednesday night during a round of protests. “What happened last night was a pure ambush,” Holder said. “This was not someone trying to bring healing to Ferguson. This was a damn punk – a punk – who was trying to sow discord in an area that is trying to get its act together, and trying to bring together a community that has been fractured for too long.” He continued, “This really disgusting and cowardly attack might’ve been intended to unravel any sense of progress that exists, but I hope that that does not happen.” He’s right about a punk not trying to bring healing. But Holder’s Justice Department just released a report finding generally racist practices in the Ferguson Police Department, and Holder has spent the better part of a year blasting racist police. Forgive us for thinking he – like his boss – sounds a bit more concerned about damage to the narrative than the lives of the officers.
