Eric Holder Sides With Alleged Cop Killers, Again

Earlier this year when President Obamanominated cop killer advocate Debo Adegbile to head up the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, Attorney General Eric Holder applauded the move. Because of Adegbile's voluntary work on behalf of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal, who brutally murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner in cold blood back in 1981, his nomination was voted down in the filibuster proof, Democrat controlled Senate 52-47. In 2011 under Adegbile's leadership at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the death penalty sentence of Mumia Abu-Jamal was overturned despite thirty years of multiple courts upholding the his murder conviction. Major law enforcement groups representing hundreds of thousands of officers from across the country sent letters directly to President Obama strongly condemning the nomination and worked with Senators to block Adegbile from working in DOJ.
“I’m very disappointed in the Senate’s vote. At a time when significant voting rights cases and other consequential matters are pending, it is more critical than ever to have a confirmed leader for the Civil Rights Division. Mr. Adegbile is a uniquely qualified nominee and an exceptional lawyer. He deserved to have his nomination considered wholly on the merits. His record was either misunderstood, or intentionally misrepresented for the sake of politics," Holder said when Adegbile's nomination was blocked.
Now, Holder has sided with a new set of alleged cop killers in Virginia by taking the death penalty out of consideration for four gang members who kidnapped and murdered Police Officer Kevin Quick. 
Four gang members who were charged with the murder of a reserve Virginia police officer, Kevin Quick, will not be facing the death penalty, federal prosecutors told reporters Friday.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has taken the death penalty off the table, but the co-defendants will face the possibility of life in prison for their alleged role in killing Quick, 45. He was reported missing on Feb. 1 and his body was found several days later.

The suspects -- Daniel Lamont Mathis, Shantai Monique Shelton, Mersadies Lachalle Shelton and Travis Leon Bell, also known as Kweli Uhuru -- were charged in May, according to The Associated Press.

Indictments released in May allege that the suspects who carjacked, kidnapped and killed Quick were members of the Virginia street gang, 99 Goon Syndikat, which reportedly has ties to the Bloods from Los Angeles

Holder's another one who can and will go to hell. He is all that is wrong with the black communities and blacks sit around with their finger shoved up their butts wondering what the problem is when it's right in front of the. Discrimination, racism profiling will continue to exist until the blacks themselves grow a brain and start using it. Until then they have to deal with the problems they and they alone are responsible for.

It will be a great day when Holder is gone. He is semi illiterate and clearly a product of affirmative action. Just like Obama he can hardly string words together to form a coherent sentence and talks like he has a big pile of crap in his mouth. And just like Obama he's a pathological liar who you can take out of the ghetto but you can't take it out of them. Blacks have so much to hang their heads in shame over after this poor excuse of an administration. Too bad they are too stupid though like Gruber said they are and can't see enough to be ashamed.
