While I intend to review the Justice Department’s report on the Ferguson PD at length, I do want to make a few quick observations about Eric Holder’s speech and a few excerpts from the reports. Link to speech below:
The New Black Panther Party (NBPP) has decided to draw the ire of the FBI this week with two of their members, Olajuwon Ali and Brandon Baldwin, indicted for attempting to use fraudulent information to obtain firearms for third parties. See attached indictment document. What has yet to be officially confirmed by the FBI, though widely rumored, is that these two individuals were also picked up in relation to an attempt to obtain pipe bombs in order commit a terrorist attack against the St. Louis Gateway Arch. Further rumors report that either one or both of these men admitted to Federal authorities that they were part of an effort to obtain firearms with the intent of killing as many law enforcement officers as possible following the Grand Jury Indictment decision in the Michael Brown shooting. To be fair, nothing besides the indictment information is confirmed at this point.
It seems as though the November 10th date for the release of the Grand Jury decision was a hoax. Perhaps it was intentional, but a hoax nonetheless. It was even being widely spread throughout law enforcement. If this date was released intentionally, it was an epic success because now, when a date is inevitably leaked in the future, no one will believe it is legitimate until the decision officially comes out. Also, many people losing their minds about military gear in and around the St. Louis area apparently forgot that Veteran’s Day was this weekend.
