    Calls to respond violently to supposed police-repression is reaching a fevered-pitch in the St. Louis and Ferguson areas. Just a few days ago, a Ferguson protest leader promised to take "anger" and "rage" out on innocents. Tonight, supporters of the protesters in Ferguson are calling for violence, particularly against people who are not African American. On social media sites, protesters are pushing an agenda of violence. During a live video on ustream yesterday, members called for their "brothers" to "break some cracker skulls:" On video, protesters scream that they're praying for the death of the police, and threaten them with...

    A candidate in North Miami's mayoral runoff election is claiming he's the victim of dirty politics after, he said, dozens of his campaign signs were either defaced or stolen. Block after block, Kevin Burns' signs have been slashed, and in some cases, are completely gone. "Most likely [they used] a box-cutter, and they just, it takes two seconds. It's only corrugated plastic," he said.

    The parents of slain 18-year-old Michael Brown said Saturday that, almost two months after his shooting, they remain deeply skeptical that they will receive justice for their son through the local prosecutor, and they have more faith in the federal probe into the circumstances surrounding his death. Members of Brown’s family said they have still had almost no interaction with the Ferguson Police Department or St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch. Two days after Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson released a video apologizing to the family for the fact that Brown’s body lay in the street for several hours after...

"It is good news that Eric Holder has announced his resignation,” Cruz said, adding:Sadly, he has proven to be the most partisan attorney general in our history, repeatedly defying and refusing to enforce the law. It did not have to be this way, but Holder’s leadership has grievously undermined the Department of Justice’s long bipartisan tradition of independence and fidelity to law.

Eric Holder's resignation as attorney general, like anything that occurs in the Obama administration, raises questions of timing. Pundits ask why now, with some suggesting President Obama is getting a two-fer — ginning up his base with tributes to the first African-American AG before the midterms while starting the nomination and confirmation process before a possible Republican takeover of the Senate in November.

Eric Holder will step down as soon as his replacement can be confirmed — and that may be quite a fight: Eric Holder Jr., the nation’s first black U.S. attorney general, is preparing to announce his resignation Thursday after a tumultuous tenure marked by civil rights advances, national security threats, reforms to the criminal justice system and five and a half years of fights with...

    The resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder is great news for the continued life of our republic. Patriotic Americans are sighing in relief and saying, “Good riddance to a lawless tyrant!” This joyous event brings to mind the startling glut of gut punches brought to bear last March by the FBI against Democrat “sacred cows;” punches which were clearly thrown without permission from Holder or any of his top aides. The FBI raided offices and arrested or indicted a half dozen usually protected Democrat minorities. Last spring within a two week period, Democrats who by their membership in protected groups...

Precious Parker, 30, and Sabrina James, 23, knocked on the door of an apartment building on Ocean Ave. near Newkirk Ave. in Flatbush at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday and held a 34-year-old man, a 37-year-old man, and a 25-year-old woman at gunpoint demanding they move out or be killed, police said.

Bill O’Reilly of Fox News reflected that weariness, saying: “All you hear is grievance, grievance, grievance, money, money, money.” Indeed, a 2011 study by scholars at Harvard and Tufts found that whites, on average, believed that anti-white racism was a bigger problem than anti-black racism.

It kept appearing hour after hour and somebody said ‘I hope somebody gets up and does something about it,” said Russell, 30. “Then I heard his mother on TV say, ‘Why did they kill my son.’” Those words triggered something in Russell.
