ERIC HOLDER to Investigate #MikeBrown Shooting in #Ferguson for ‘Civil Rights Violations’

On Saturday August 9, 2014, 18 year-old Ferguson resident Michael Brown robbed a local convenience store.

Shortly after this robbery Michael Brown was shot dead by Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson.

…But not before he attacked Darren Wilson.

On Tuesday The Gateway Pundit reported from two independent sources that Officer Darren Wilson suffered an orbital blowout fracture to his eye socket during his encounter with Michael Brown.

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store…

…Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

The St. Louis County Police told reporters after the shooting that the police officer involved suffered facial injuries. He “was hit” and the “side of his face was swollen.”

On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that Officer Darren Wilson was hit and injured in the attack.  This came from “forensic analysis” and “Ferguson witnesses.”

Now this…
US Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters today that his department is investigating the shooting of Michael Brown and the Ferguson police department on possible “civil rights violations.”
USA Today reported:

The Justice Department is conducting a parallel investigation into possible civil rights violations related to the shooting. In an extraordinary move, he also ordered a federal autopsy — the third forensic examination of the body, which was hit at least six times by gunfire.

Before a briefing on the investigation at local FBI headquarters, Holder said the Justice Department had assembled “very experienced” prosecutors and agents to pursue the federal civil rights inquiry.

“Our investigation is different,” Holder said in a meeting room surrounded by top local federal officials, including FBI Agent in Charge William Woods and U. S. Attorney Rich Callahan.

“We’re looking for possible violations of federal civil rights statutes,” the attorney general said.

Holder also met with Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, who is coordinating law enforcement response to the protests. Asked whether he had confidence in the local investigation led by the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney, Johnson said: “General Holder, by being here, is a guarantee on that.”

This is unbelievable. The Obama administration has joined the Ferguson mob.
