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?

Press Conference: Passionate plea from Chief of Police Tim Longo in search of missing Hannah Graham … Everyone in the sound of my voice, you have the responsibility to find her
Police who searched a car and a condo Friday in connection with the disappearance of a University of Virginia student almost a week ago say they have identified the man who was with Hannah Graham when she was last seen.
Witnesses saw Graham, 18, of Alexandria, Va., inside a downtown restaurant and bar early Saturday with a 32-year-old man who had been observed earlier on surveillance video tailing the sophomore, Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo said.
Before the two entered the bar, witnesses saw the man, dressed in all white, put his hands around Graham’s waist. At the bar, the man bought alcohol, and he and Graham left after 15 minutes, Longo said.
“People saw Hannah, and people saw him, and people saw them together,” Longo said.
Shortly after that, the man’s 1998 burnt orange Chrysler coupe left the city’s Downtown Mall area, a seven-block pedestrian strip lined with shops and restaurants. Longo said he believes that Graham was in that car.
“There was no probable cause to arrest him, no legally sufficient reason to detain him,” the police chief said. “He’s not in custody, but we know who he is.”
Police executed a search warrant of the man’s car, a 1997 burnt orange Chrysler Coupe, and an apartment at 164 Hessian Hills Way Friday morning. The man police were looking for was inside the apartment along with two other people, but he is not in custody, police said.
The man is described as a black male, 32-year-old, 6′ 2″ tall with dreadlocks dressed in all white. Multiple witnesses told police that a black man with dreadlocks turned around when he saw Hannah Graham walking on the Downtown Mall, police said.
“We’re interested in him,” Chief Tim Longo said, but did not call the man a suspect. Police said they have spoken with this man and want to speak with him again.
Anyone with information on her disappearance is asked to call Charlottesville police at 434-295-3851

Lake Mary, Florida Police Say George Zimmerman Threatened to Kill a Man in Road Rage Incident, No Charges Pressed Against Zimmerman
YET ANOTHER GEORGE ZIMMERMAN SIGHTING … ZIMMERMAN MAKING NEWS AGAIN.
As reported at WKMG Local 6, the Lake Mary, FL police stated that George Zimmerman, yes, that same George Zimmerman, threatened to kill a man in a road rage incident that occurred on Tuesday, September 9. The individual called 911. Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said the man, whose name was not released, recognized the driver of the truck as George Zimmerman. The man said Zimmerman, who was carrying a gun, asked, “Do you know who I am?” before saying, “I’ll (f***ing) kill you.” Two days later, the same man called 911 again and said that he saw Zimmerman in his truck outside his work. According to accounts, Zimmerman acknowledged to police officers that he had exchanged words with the man the previous day. The man declined to press charges. If the man felt threatened, not really sure why he did not want to press charges.
The road rage incident happened Tuesday, Lake Mary police told Local 6, but the other driver declined to press charges, so Zimmerman was not arrested.
Police said the man, whose name was not released, called police after a truck pulled up next to him and the driver yelled, “Why are you pointing a finger at me?”
The man pulled into the Circle K at 4410 W. Lake Mary Blvd. to call 911, according to police, who added that driver followed him into the parking lot but took off before police arrived.
Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said the man recognized the truck driver as Zimmerman. The man said Zimmerman, who was carrying a gun, asked, “Do you know who I am?” before saying, “I’ll (f***ing) kill you.”
Two days later, the man said he saw Zimmerman in his truck outside his workplace. He called police but declined to press charges.
Bret Baier Fox News Exclusive – ’13 Hours in Benghazi’: Top CIA Officer in Benghazi Delayed Response to Terrorist Attack … “I strongly believe if we’d left immediately, they’d still be alive today.”
THEY WERE TOLD TO STAND DOWN ...VIDEO, WHAT VIDEO?
IN A MUST SEE INTERVIEW, their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Ahead of the book, “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” comes the following interview with Fox News Special Report Brett Baier and the security contractors — Kris (“Tanto”) Paronto, Mark (“Oz”) Geist, and John (“Tig”) Tiegen.
A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier.
Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the first-responders to any attack on the diplomatic compound. Their first-hand account will be told in a Fox News special, airing Friday night at 10 p.m. (EDT).
Based on the new book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” by Mitchell Zuckoff with the Annex Security Team, the special sets aside the political spin that has freighted the Benghazi issue for the last two years, presenting a vivid, compelling narrative of events from the perspective of the men who wore the “boots on the ground.”
Now, looking back, the security team said they believed that if they had not been delayed for nearly half an hour, or if the air support had come, things might have turned out differently.
“Ambassador Stevens and Sean [Smith], yeah, they would still be alive, my gut is yes,” Paronto said. Tiegen concurred.
“I strongly believe if we’d left immediately, they’d still be alive today,” he added.

Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel Shot to Death During Traffic Stop … DOUBLE STANDARD: Where’s the MSM Outrage?
WHERE’S THE WALL TO WALL MSM COVERAGE, WHERE’S AL SHARTTON, WHERE’S JESSE JACKSON? WHERE IS THE CALL FROM BARACK OBAMA TO HIS FAMILY?
64 year old Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel was shot multiple times during a traffic stop on Saturday and later died of his wounds at University Hospital in San Antonio, TX. Police Chief Pimentel was shot by 24 year old Joshua Manuel Lopez, who had an active misdemeanor warrant for graffiti at the time he was pulled over. AND YOU WONDER WHY POLICE OFFICERS REACT THE WAY THEY DO WHEN THEY PULL SOME ONE OVER OR ARE CONFRONTED? Joshua Manuel Lopez had only a misdemeanor warrant for graffiti but yet was armed with a gun and shot and killed a police officer. Joshua Manuel Lopez was arrested and taken into custody. Lopez faces capital murder charges and is being held in the Bexar County Adult Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
Take a good look America as to the dangers that police officers are confronted every day with every possible encounter they have. But the MSM, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, AG Eric Holder and President Barack Obama are more concerned with fanning the flames of racism and race baiting, rather than honoring those police officers who protect and serve. You will only hear from an agenda driven media and opportunists about how police officer Darren Wilson assassinated Michael Brown. God forbid they honor individuals like Police Chief Michael Pimentel who had a long career of protecting and serving. I wonder how many people the White House is sending to Michael Pimentel’s funeral?
