US Justice Department Tells Ferguson, MO Police to Stop Wearing Bracelets in Support of Officer Darren Wilson
Who the hell does the US Department of Justice think they are in telling a local police department not to where a bracelet, it would appear that the Obama and still Eric Holder DOJ has not heard of Freedom of Speech!!!
Maybe it is the Department of Justice that needs to be investigated for civil rights violations? In a letter to Ferguson, Missouri Police Chief Tom Jackson, the United States Justice Department ordered that the local police department officers not wear a bracelet in support of Darren Wilson, the officer who shot 18 year old Michael Brown on August 9, 2014. HUH? The bracelets some police officers were wearing read , “I am Darren Wilson” Who the hell does the DOJ think they are? They have no authority or jurisdiction to tell the Ferguson police what they can and cannot wear. But a gutless state and local police department is allowing the Feds to push them around and have gone along with the ban. UNREAL. The DOJ is supposed to be running a civil rights investigation into the Ferguson PD, I guess we know just how bias that report will be.
This is what tyranny looks like America. When those responsible for enforcing civil rights rights are the very one’s breaking them, we have a real problem.
The U.S. Justice Department asked the Ferguson, Missouri, Police Department on Friday to order its officers not to wear bracelets in support of the white policeman who shot to death an unarmed black teenager last month, sparking protests.
In a letter to Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson, the Justice Department said residents had told its investigators that officers policing protest sites on Tuesday in Ferguson were seen wearing “I am Darren Wilson” bracelets.
The Justice Department has opened an investigation into the shooting and the police treatment of protesters, which critics say was unduly harsh.
The letter said the bracelets had “upset and agitated” people and “reinforce the very ‘us versus them’ mentality that many residents of Ferguson believe exists.”
EXIT QUESTION: Do you think the DOJ would have a problem is the Ferguson police wore “I am Michael Brown” bracelets?
