EDGARTOWN, Mass. Senior White House aides have made repeated, urgent phone calls to Gov. Jay Nixon of Missouri, to state police officials and to civil rights leaders in recent days as President Obamas administration becomes more deeply involved in trying to maintain peace in Ferguson and to ensure an independent investigation of the fatal shooting of an unarmed African-American teenager by a white police officer.
White House officials also said Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who is the administrations most outspoken voice on racial issues, had been in frequent touch with the governor and State Highway Patrol in Missouri as angry protests continued to simmer there. Mr. Holder is scheduled to provide a formal briefing to the president in Washington on Monday, officials said. Both men were returning Sunday from Marthas Vineyard, where they had been vacationing for the past week.
Mr. Holder announced Sunday that a federal medical examiner would conduct an independent autopsy of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot Aug. 9 in Ferguson by Officer Darren Wilson. Officials said the decision was the result of extraordinary circumstances in the case, and was part of a civil rights investigation the F.B.I. is conducting.
The order for an additional autopsy may also help the Obama administration to reassure Mr. Browns family and others who are suspicious of the states investigation and are eager for an independent inquiry, something that Mr. Holder promised the family personally.
Brian Fallon, a Justice Department spokesman, said the department would also consider the results of the first, state-conducted autopsy. There was no indication that federal investigators saw any problems with the local examination. The family has also had a private autopsy conducted.

I doubt the article's assertion that Obama is working hard at anything in Martha's Vineyard, and even if he is, this should not be a federal matter.
is the furthest thing from their actual motives.
Agitation serves their agenda,
peace does not.
If the first pathologist has any sense he will subject the corpse to full-body MRI before handing it over the to evidence-manufacturing division of the Department of JustUs.
The family had their own autopsy. WTH do the feds need another one for?
They’re going to continue carving up the young man until they get the results they’re looking for.
The Feds act as if anyone believes them. That’s a laugh. By the time they get done with this perp’s body, it will look like mince meat laying there.
They will keep desecrating the body until they “find” evidence that supports their agenda.
What does that even mean ‘keep peace’?
Beat me by 1:10...
It means that they will as always dither to pretend to be doing something to resolve an issue totally beyond their control
The autopsy will provide fodder for a speech that allows the propagandists to blather balderdash about the dither
Brilliant minds think alike. :)
“Administration Plans Autopsy of Michael Brown in Desperate Effort to Keep Riling up Its Base For the Midterm Elections.”
The New York Times isn’t fit to train puppies.
If you like peace, you can keep it. (ya sure).
in Effort to Fan Flames
BS, the Obama administration and his hacks at Justice are praying for some evidence to conduct a legal lynching.
“The sheer number of bullets and the way they were scattered all over his body showed this police officer had a brazen disregard for the very people he was supposed to protect in that community, Mr. Crump said. We want to make sure people understand what this case is about: This case is about a police officer executing a young unarmed man in broad daylight.”
Translation: The cop should have just shot him one time in the head like they do in the movies.
