What does it take for Holder to investigate civil rights violations when they are committed by a black cop?
The world will never know.
I am all about law and order. For me there is no color. I further believe that the overwhelming majority of cops are good people who want to do the right thing. But there are bad ones, and they come in all colors.
My problem is that Holder is color-sensitive when it comes to law enforcement. When a white cop rightfully shoots a black person, Holder still uses taxpayer money to investigate. However, when black cops do bad things, Holder is silent.
As the Washington Times reported:
Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs was shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama. Despite public pressure for an indictment, a Mobile County grand jury refused to bring charges against Officer Austin, concluding that the officer acted in self-defense.
In this practically identical case to Michael Brown, Holder has done nothing, and my bet is you weren’t even aware of the story.
There are cases of black cops taking bribes from drug dealers. This rises to the level of a federal investigation, one would think.
Or what about the officer in Cincinnati OH who had set up various building to have sex with a teenager. This is potentially dangerous behavior that could lead to prostitution at best and child-trafficking at worst.
And there are many others cases that could be investigated if Holder weren’t so obsessed with helping black teen thugs, and other black lawbreakers.
Justice is supposed to be blind. I don’t care what color a bad cop is, as a bad cop is a bad cop. But if I’m going to side one way or the other, cops will get the benefit of the doubt over thugs.
