Attorney General Eric Holder Praises SLU President for Paying Off #Occupy #Ferguson Mob

In October far left #OccupySLU protesters marched to Saint Louis University campus during their Ferguson October weekend rallies.
They never left.

The squatters set up a tent city on the Catholic campus in St. Louis City.
And they camped out for several days.

One violent #OccupySLU protester admitted to being a felon and rapped about raping and whipping white girls with his manparts.

“Locked in jail I can’t win in this bitch.
So when I get out I’m gonna fuck me a white b*tch.
Slap her and whip her and choke her with my d*ck”

(Warning on violence and language)

The demonstration did not go over too well with the St. Louis University community.

The protesters left campus that weekend after parents voiced their displeasure with the security threat on campus.

On Saturday Saint Louis President Fred Pestello Ph.D. said he was disheartened by “harsh and ugly” words by parents who were concerned that the school had allowed felons to camp out on campus.  Pestello released a flowery statement to the St. Louis University community about how the groups came together in dialogue and reached a resolution.

But President Fred Pestello was not completely honest with the parents.
Pestello paid off the protesters to leave campus.

The protesters were not students at the university.

Conservative radio host Jamie Allman posted the payoff document on his website.

The payoff included an increased budget for African American studies, increased financial aid to African American students and the construction of an African American Community Center.

For some reason President Pestello did not share this information with the parents of the students. Annual tuition at the university is $37,500.

After the payoff Attorney General Eric Holder wrote Pestello and praised him for how he handled the criminal action.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has offered high praise to St. Louis University President Fred Pestello, commending him for his handling of last month’s Occupy SLU protest.

In a letter delivered to the university late last month, Holder called Pestello’s leadership, “nothing short of exemplary” in his managing of the Occupy SLU protest.

Occupy SLU was an outgrowth of wider protests of police shootings that have taken hold in the area since the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.

Organized by students and a number of community groups, more than 1,000 people gathered in front of the university’s clock tower on the first night of the protests.

In the following days, Occupy SLU turned into an encampment with roughly two dozen protesters living in tents advocating for equality and racial justice.
