DOJ: Only We Can Leak Information!

Justice Department condemns Ferguson leaks as effort to sway opinion

With a grand jury decision looming on whether a white police officer should face charges in the killing of an unarmed black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Mo., the investigation has sprung a few leaks.

New details from the inquiry into Michael Brown’s Aug. 9 death — all provided by unidentified sources and which seem to support Officer Darren Wilson’s story of what happened that day — have emerged in St. Louis and national news outlets in recent days.

The U.S. Department of Justice condemned the leaks Wednesday as “irresponsible and highly troubling” and said, “There seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.”

[…]

The leaks seemed to create a fresh rupture in trust with black St. Louis-area officials and protesters, who said Wednesday that they were upset with what they saw as another breakdown in the justice system because information from the supposedly secret grand jury continued to appear in the media. The grand jury’s decision is expected in November.

“There is no way there should be reports from all these anonymous sources and these ‘leaks’ ….This is supposed to play out in the courts and the justice system, and not the media,” said Patricia Bynes, a committeewoman for Ferguson township, which includes the city of Ferguson, and a prominent voice in the protest movement. Quoting a popular chant, she added, “The whole damn system is guilty as hell.”

[…]

Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Brown’s family, said he was not surprised by the autopsy report’s details.

“Several independent witnesses indicated there was a brief altercation between Michael Brown and Officer Wilson at the patrol car,” Crump said in a statement. “What we want to know is why Officer Wilson shot Michael Brown multiple times and killed him even though he was more than 20 feet away from his patrol car; this is the crux of the matter!”

[…]

A Justice Department spokeswoman responded in a statement to the Los Angeles Times: “The department considers the selective release of information in this investigation to be irresponsible and highly troubling. Since the release of the convenience-store footage, there seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.”

The reference to the convenience-store footage alluded to a video released by Ferguson police on the same day they disclosed Wilson’s identity. The video showed Brown apparently intimidating a store clerk shortly before the shooting.

Chris King, managing editor of the St. Louis American, a newspaper for black audiences, said law enforcement officials had offered him the leaks, saying “they had been briefed on the evidence and it didn’t look good for Michael Brown supporters,” but he declined and decried “third-party hearsay” in an editorial for the paper.

“Tensions are so high that preparations for riots, if Wilson walks free, are discussed in sober terms in local and national media and on street corners,” the American said in its editorial. “The editors of these powerful publications have shown a lapse in judgment and ethics that is not only shameful, but actually dangerous. We declare a mistrial in the court of public opinion.”

The paper asked that Wilson be charged with second-degree murder and that his case be taken to trial.


When this story first broke we were told that a white cop shot and killed an unarmed black teenager who was either running away or standing there with his hands raised trying to surrender. Race pimps, rioters, Eric Holder and the national media immediately descended on Ferguson, Missouri. The officer involved had to leave the state when his name and address were publicly disclosed.

It was only after riots had started that the Ferguson police began to push back by releasing the convenience store video showing Michael “Gentle Giant” Brown committing a strong-arm robbery minutes before he was stopped by Officer Wilson. The usual suspects screamed in protest that the cops were trying to smear Brown.

The truth is they are just pissed off that once again the actual evidence doesn’t fit their racial narrative. If the leaked information was incriminating as to Officer Wilson they wouldn’t be concerned with swaying public opinion.


It's hard out there for a race pimp.

    I still have not understood just what holder – sharpton – backtrack – jackson have to gain by starting race riots. In the last 6 years the divide between black and white has become wider than the atlantic ocean. I really do not think it will be fixed in my lifetime. People look at each other with distrust and instead of a hand stretched out in friendship and maybe some learning from each other now the hand is pulled back and people step back from each other. This helps no one

    Happy Anniversary, not in a good way….but next to 9-11, I do remember exactly where I was this day. In BumF**K Jax, NC. My neighbor pounded on my door early that morning so I wouldn’t see it on the news. Camp Lejeune was my family then. Half our neighborhood’s Dad’s were killed that day. Wow.
    I do remember it put CNN on the Map. I do know St.Ron of the Reagan didn’t want that “we’re peacekeepeers” guard shack to have “rounds in their chambers” so the a’holes in the bomb truck breached them…the rest is history….sigh.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Beirut_barracks_bombing

    • lyn says:

      From Wikipedia: Shortly after the barracks bombing, President Ronald Reagan appointed a military fact-finding committee headed by retired Admiral Robert L. J. Long to investigate the bombing. The commission’s report found senior military officials responsible for security lapses and blamed the military chain of command for the disaster. It suggested that there might have been many fewer deaths if the barracks guards had carried loaded weapons and a barrier more substantial than the barbed wire the bomber drove over easily.

      • The Klown says:

        That’s why you see big concrete posts at entrances nowadays.

      • DeniseVB says:

        The crappy politics of the military, the commanders got blamed because Reagan wanted a peacekeeping presence in Beirut, no rounds in the chambers, heaven forbid there would be an “accidential discharge”. In the meantime, my husband was pissed he didn’t get that battalion, he got the one that was in 29 Palms (CA) at the time, training. I was just one of the mommy/wives left back in Jax with the other 8th Marines families. That morning I raced over to the Beirut CO’s wife’s home….to wait. I remember Nancy Reagan pulled up in her driveway in a big black car, usually the sign of a casualty officer and chaplin’s arrival to tell you your loved one is dead. Nah, just Nancy to give my friend a hug. To her credit, it was not a photo op.

        A few weeks later, my husband was home, more pissed than ever. He would have disobeyed the “no rounds in the chamber” order at that guard shack. Which he did when his battalion was sent to Beirut a few months later. He got reported by the US Ambassador to Beirut at the time (wiki a year later http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_United_States_embassy_annex_bombing ) Hubby didn’t make General, he didn’t play the “game”. So, 31 years later……

          “Half our neighborhood’s Dad’s were killed that day” is terribly sad.

        • Somebody says:

          Wow Denise, I didn’t know some of that thanks for telling your story. I didn’t know Nancy Reagan went to Camp LeJune, I’m very thankful it seemed to be sincere and not a photo op.

          I didn’t know the orders of no rounds in the chamber continued after that awful day, WTF? It was bad policy from the start and to think they continued it after the bombing, OMFG! What is even more maddening is that in the years since our soldiers have had similar or worse contraints put on them by various CIC.

    Great post–a lot of people I know (not racist) are pissed. They are sick of everything and especially common sense discussions always being framed as racial.

  6. The Klown says:

  7. I’ve seen this line in a number of articles today: “inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.” Think there’s coordination? I think they are just pissed that there’s a well-publicized effort to fight them on their own turf. There’s no law whatsoever about “inappropriately influenc[ing] public opinion” on this or any other case. They make is sound so bad as an attempt to sway public fucking opinion.

  8. 1539days says:

    It’s funny. When the Tea Party has peaceful rallies to talk about the government taking way freedom, they are deemed proto-terrorists who want to tear down civilization. When Blacks don’t trust the police, the race baiters come in and there are rallies where their neighborhoods are torn down.

    • leslie says:

      And when we have home grown terrorists running around we call it ‘workplace violence’. We only have Tea Party terrorists in our 57 states.

    The ax berserker terrorist (did he think he was a Viking or something) and Dr Special Snowflake Ebowla ( dude felt like bowling) both went to Columbia as did our Prezzy. Do they give extra points for admission to idiots?

  10. mothy67 says:

    Progressives are rather simple. I was looking over a survey from an Ivy League school . Attempted to guilt me — do I feel bad when I see others suffering. Blah, blah, blah. Cocoon idiots don’t realize the panic is not from worrying about the self but parents scared for their kids. ISIS and obowla will drive mothers, fathers, grandparents, teachers to those defending the monsters. Special little snowflakes have probably never put anyone before their sublime little thoughts and feelings.
    Assailed.

    why we should be afraid, very afraid.
    Dr Spencer would be a better hero if he had followed the rules and stayed Quarantined and not run around all over NYC

  13. HELENK3 says:

    Bowling alley that Craig Spencer attended in Williamsburg, NY, on Ebola response: ‘We voluntarily decided to close The Gutter yesterday evening as a precautionary measure while we gathered more information. We are working with the NYC Health Department to have the bar cleaned and sanitized under their supervision and expect to be open sometime today after that is completed’ – statement

    The hearing on Ebola is interesting. A lot of self-congratulations going on. The old Dr Lurie looks more like Keith Richards than Mick Jaggger. Now Rep Lynch is telling them to knock off the “happy talk”. He says he believes nurses over the bureaucrats who say the US is nowhere near ready for Ebola.

    • Lulu says:

      Rep Lynch asks when is HHS going to take this seriously? When is science going to be used? When he hears happy talk he gets worried!

      • Lulu says:

        Quarantines would take medical personnel offline too long. WTF. Now they are zeroing in on Dr Keith Richards. Not only does she look like him she thinks like him! Yikes. A rep is having to read her duties to her from her website. She is responsible for all preparation for epidemics. Why did you spend money for puppet shows instead of an Ebola vaccin? She is the main person to decide these things but…but….but….

  16. mothy67 says:

    Rep. Jim Jordan(R-OH) broke out a can whoop ass on this NIH woman. 375K for puppet shows with vegetables for kids.

    • Lulu says:

      You mean Dr Keith Richards? She is the one with the small pox no bid contract scandal given to an Obama bundler who filed for bankruptcy with no drug to show for it after denying money for Zmapp.

    Look at the picture in this link
    http://www.silive.com/news/index.ssf/2014/10/manhattan_doctor_who_visited_a.html

    You can clearly see the doctor’s ears are exposed, also it appears he only has a single pair of gloves on. Now look in the mirror at the person taking the picture, he has on no protective gear at all, yet he’s in room with “suited up” people AND he’s using a cell phone to take the picture. Was that the doctor’s cell phone? Did the guy that took the picture snap the picture and then hand the cell phone back to the doctor and then the doctor stuck it in his pocket with who knows what germs on it??

    Today’s good news: In NYC, you’re still more likely to be killed in a jihadist axe attack than by Ebola (so far)

        How about the fact that lots of people don’t wash their hands after going to the bathroom. Then those same people walk about touching handrails and door knobs that you then touch. How about the fact that TONS of people sneeze into their hands and then turn around and touch stuff.
