Eric “My People” Holder Revives “Domestic Terrorism” Task Force To Target “Racial Prejudice & Anti-Gov’t Animus”
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States is reviving a law enforcement group to investigate those it designates as domestic terrorists, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday.
Following hate-motivated shootings such as the one at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City, Missouri in April, federal prosecutors have pressed the need to coordinate intelligence about such criminals on a national level, Justice Department officials said.
The Department of Justice will reconstitute a task force that was originally formed after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing but dissolved after the Sept. 11, 2001 hijacked plane attacks as law enforcement agencies focused on threats from militants abroad.
On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement that the United States remains concerned about threats from Islamic extremists, but the group will focus on other motives for attacks within U.S. borders.
Events like the April 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon, in which the attackers appeared to be influenced by extremists abroad, would not fall under the jurisdiction of the group, named the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee.
“We must also concern ourselves with the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of other causes from anti-government animus to racial prejudice,” Holder said.
The American Civil Liberties Union said it plans to engage with the Justice Department to ensure the effort does not lead to racial profiling or other bias targeting of individuals who may be wrongfully suspected of having violent intentions, said Naureen Shah, legislative counsel for the ACLU.
“Attorney General Holder’s announcement that the new task force will focus on evidence of anti-government animus and racial intolerance raises concerns that it could be a sweeping mandate to monitor and collect controversial speech,” said Lee Rowland, a staff attorney at the ACLU.
The committee’s members will come from the FBI, the National Security Division of the Justice Department and the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee, which includes representatives of federal prosecutors.
As a friendly reminder; Dear Leader sees conservatives / tea party who are anti-BIG government, pro-liberty and pro-constitution as “anti-government“. The distinction is lost on them. But isn’t that always the case?
“Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”
- Barack Obama -Nov. 7 2009
Lest we forget, conservatives/ tea partiers are raging raaaaacists too.
And who do you think he will protect?

Detroit: 54 Yr Old White Man Clings To Life After Being Beaten By Black Mob After Accidentally Hitting Boy With Truck UPDATE: 2 Arrested So Far
DETROIT (WWJ) – As a 54-year-old Roseville man clings to life in the hospital following a brutal mob beating on Detroit’s east side, many are starting to wonder if the whole thing was racially motivated.
As first reported by WWJ Newsradio 950, an 11-year-old boy suffered a broken leg on Wednesday [April 2, 2014] when he was hit by a pickup truck after walking into the street near Morang and Balfour. The driver, Steven Utash, immediately got out of his truck after hitting the boy and was viciously attacked by 10 to 12 men. The beating was so brutal, Utash was rendered unconscious.
Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody said Steven Utash was not at fault for the accident.
“Our preliminary investigation shows the child stepped in front of his vehicle,” Woody said. “He did exactly the right thing. He stopped his vehicle, he got out and he tried to render aid to a small child. He did exactly what he was supposed to do… It was a small child and it was an accident; is what it was.”
Joseph Utash said he believes his father was intentionally targeted or even worse, that skin color might have played a role. Based on witness accounts, the attackers were African American.
Police are hoping the public can help investigators find those responsible for the beating.
Anyone who witnessed the attack, can identify the assailants, or who has any information about this case is urged to call Detroit police at 313-596-1616. Tips can be made anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
Utash remained in critical condition Friday (April 4, 2014).
His family has set up a fund to help with the hospital bills.

DETROIT -Detroit police say two teenagers have been arrested in the beating of a suburban man who was attacked while trying to help a boy struck by his pickup truck.
Sgt. Mike Woody says the 17-year-old and the 16-year-oldmales had a direct role in the severe beating of Steve Utash on Wednesday. He remains in critical condition.
Woody says the arrests were made Saturday, although no charges will be filed immediately while investigators continue their work.
DETROIT (WXYZ) – Detroit Police confirm to 7 Action News they have arrested two people in the beating of Steve Utash, the driver beaten by a group of people after stopping to help a boy he hit.
Police say a 16-year-old boy and 17-year-old boy were taken into custody this morning at their homes. We are told they are not family members of the boy who was hit.
According to Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody, the community helped with the arrests and he credits the neighborhood police officers program. Woody says officers hit the street, stepped up and made key relationships.
The men live in the neighborhood where the attack happened, and information has been sent to the prosecutor’s office.
Police still believe 10-12 people were involved in the attack, so they are not done yet.

VIDEO: 200 Strong Violent Black Flash Mob Rampage Through Louisville –Police Chief & Mayor Downplay Frequency Of Mob Incidents UPDATE: Crime Stats Coverup (?)
Must save those precious tourism tax dollars!
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Police said that Saturday night’s rampant vandalism and violence was an isolated event. But those who have seen groups of teens terrorize the area just south of Waterfront Park before, say it’s nothing new.
Police responded to 17 separate incidents Saturday night [March 23, 2914] between 7 and 9 p.m. They say the criminal acts occurred after police broke up a gathering of around 200 teenagers at Waterfront Park.
City officials are calling the events “unusual” and “isolated”.
“Last night was not the rule,” said Louisville Metro Chief of Police Steve Conrad at a press conference on Sunday. “It was an exception to the normal experience we see in Waterfront Park. It is a safe place to take your kids, it is a safe place to enjoy time with your family. But it is a public park and with any public location, you have the potential for problematic behavior.”
During a press conference Monday afternoon, [DEMOCRAT] Mayor Greg Fischer reiterated what the Chief said.
“This was an extraordinarily unusual incident,” said Fischer. “Nothing like this has happened in decades, so hopefully that will stay that way.”
But Bader says raucous crowds of teens terrorize the area almost every weekend once the weather warms up.
“It’s not isolated. It’s been going on for years,” said Bader. [...]

UPDATE: Crime stats coverup?
Louisville Metro Police have not yet responded to WDRB’s request, under the Kentucky Open Records Act, for several years’ worth of incident reports involving Waterfront Park and surrounding areas. Police Chief Steve Conrad told Metro Council members Wednesday that police are compiling recent data for crime at Waterfront Park.
Maj. Jeff Wardrip, commander of LMPD’s first division, which includes downtown, did not return a phone call seeking comment. Police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley declined to make officers from the first division available for interviews.
This is one of the reasons I live in the country and rarely venture to the city.
Black Female Teen Thugs Smash Temple Coed’s Face With A Brick UPDATE: Descriptions & Surveillance Video Of Suspects UPDATE 2: 1 Arrest Made, 4 In Custody, Pack Possibly Involved In 2 Other Attacks
Though there is no mention of the victim’s race, her boyfriend is white (as seen with his face obscured in the above video). The race of the assailants is also undisclosed. I am assuming the thugs are black. Of course you all are welcome to come to your own conclusions. Alas, if the media would have released detailed descriptions of the perps we would not be left second guessing.
(NBC Philadelphia) –A 19-year-old Temple University student suffered serious facial injuries after an attacker hit her with a brick only a block from campus Friday.
The student was walking with her 20-year-old boyfriend, who also attends Temple, near 16th and Norris streets around 6 p.m. when a group of about 10 teens and young children began taunting them, according to sources.
The group of attackers consisted of boys and girls ranging in age from about 8 to 14-years-old, according to the victim’s boyfriend.
“A couple of them started to grab at her earrings and her hair,” he said. “My instinct was to stop them from hurting us and leave and get away.”
He says he asked the group to back off, but his request went unheard as a female member of the group took a brick and smashed his 19-year-old girlfriend in the face.
“Her teeth were out of place,” he said. “It was terrible, it was terrifying.”
The victim’s teeth were dislocated and she suffered multiple other facial injuries.
Investigators are still searching for the attackers. [...]
Race notwithstanding ANYONE who engages in such savage inhumane behavior are subhuman mongrels.
If the couple was armed and had fired off a few rounds in self defense which resulted in the death of the 8 year old —Trayvon x 100. A media firestorm and death threats would soon follow.
BUT as they say; it is better to be judged by 12 than be carried by 6.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Kyle Rogers woke up in an ambulance Sunday morning, completely unaware of the random attack that put him there.
The 23-year-old man and his parents then investigated, eventually tracking down surveillance video showing a man running up to Rogers and sucker-punching him before walking off.
Rogers, who broke his jaw and suffered facial lacerations, told CBS 2′s Jessica Schneider he’s positive he was a victim of a “knockout game” attack.
“I’m defenseless,” said Rogers, whose mouth is wired shut. “It’s one thing if he was looking me in the face, like squaring up, but, come on, from behind? It’s like a coward move.”
Police released the surveillance video Thursday and are asking for the public’s help in tracking down the suspect, described as a black man in his 20s.
Rogers had just left his friends at a bar on Spring Street and was walking north on the Bowery when the attack occurred around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. He was knocked unconscious and taken to Bellevue Hospital.
“I guess when I fell and hit the ground, I split this open, my eyebrow, and my chin from the punch,” he said of his injuries.
Rogers said he didn’t know his attacker and his assailant didn’t say anything to him before punching him.

Surveillance Video: Black Thug Brutally Assaults White Bus Driver “Is That Real Blood? Let Me Taste It”
How dare a bus driver expect a passenger to behave in a civilized manner.
(KOMO) –OLYMPIA, Wash. — A simple route along the west side of Olympia became a ride from hell Tuesday [Feb. 25, 2014] afternoon.
Surveillance video from the Intercity Transit bus shows a horrific attack on a driver after a confrontation and yelling turned into a beatdown.
The video shows a man swearing and harassing passengers, which drew the attention of the driver.
“I told you once. I’m not gonna tell you again,” the driver said to the man, warning him to tone down his language or else he would be thrown off the bus.
Shortly afterward, the driver pulled the bus over and went to the back of the bus to get the man to leave.
“If you hit me in the face, we will fight to the death,” the man said to the driver.
The driver continued to tell the man to leave and he came close, standing right next to the open door. But the man would not leave and the driver eventually tried to shove him out.
The man then began to pummel the driver, hitting him more than two dozen times. One passenger tried to pull the man off but the man paused only long enough to mock the driver.
“You bleeding? Is that real blood? Let me taste it,” he said.
The man eventually left the bus and the passengers and the driver called 911. The driver went to the hospital. He was treated for broken bones in his face and released Tuesday night.
