Eric Holder Heads to Ferguson
Eric Holder wrote an open letter regarding the situation in Ferguson. He said,
This is my pledge to the people of Ferguson: Our investigation into this matter will be full, it will be fair, and it will be independent. And beyond the investigation itself, we will work with the police, civil rights leaders, and members of the public to ensure that this tragedy can give rise to new understanding — and robust action — aimed at bridging persistent gaps between law enforcement officials and the communities we serve. Long after the events of Aug. 9 have receded from the headlines, the Justice Department will continue to stand with this community.
The US Attorney General will head to Ferguson Wednesday to be briefed by the Justice Department on the investigation and he will speak with community leaders.
