Lynch Mob: DOJ Ferguson Unit Has Tainted Past

Due Process: The Criminal Section of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division that is handling the shooting of Michael Brown was once smacked down by a federal judge for gross prosecutorial misconduct.

Demonstrating the same relentless pursuit of truth and justice that occurred after the New Black Panther voter-intimidation case or the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in Fast and Furious, Attorney General Eric Holder and his team of leftist lawyers and ideologues have descended on Ferguson, Mo., to assure, as Gov. Jay Nixon put it, justice is done for Brown and his family.

Justice for Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson is another thing, as it was for five members of the New Orleans Police Department. They faced federal charges for, and were convicted of, shooting suspected looters on New Orleans' Danziger Bridge after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The presumption of innocence was also cast aside in that case, and the end of finding the officers guilty of civil rights violations justified any means.

As Hans von Spakovsky has documented in National Review Online, antics by Justice Department lawyers from the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division included: leaking supposedly secret grand jury proceedings and conducting a PR campaign to influence the jury and inflame public opinion that included blogging on the website of the Times-Picayune newspaper.

It is becoming extremely uncomfortable to the thugs in office to find that they can't control information anymore. The counterfacts (truths) are coming out before their cooked-book stories, and hammering their talking points before they open their mouths. Even the lamestream media can no longer ignore the counter points, and sometimes those, even on their state media, are coming out at the same time, if not before, if with stunned looks on the face of the apparatchik teleprompter readers. Sure, they can still, almost, keep the low-info and party-line fed. But they have lost the rest and are losing ground even among their staunchest axis members. It's hard to have heart for lies when the whole world knows it's a lie. People start realizing the mumblers need to be put in a straitjacket for their own good, if not, certainly for our good.
