“Washington, D.C. – Attorney General Eric Holder, along with President Barack Obama, condemned the shooting attack on two police officers in Ferguson, Mo. early Thursday morning. A tweet sent from the official White House account read: “Violence against the police is unacceptable. Our prayers are with the officers in MO. Path to justice is one all of us most travel together” –bo.” Tweets signed “-bo” come directly from the president’s hand.
“Holder, whose Justice Department had recently released a report that laid out a deeply-ingrained racism in Ferguson’s justice system, slammed the “damn punk” who he said ambushed the police officers. Holder said at a press conference: “What happened last night was a pure ambush. This was not someone who was trying to bring back healing to Ferguson – this was a damn punk.”
“Police were searching Thursday for a suspect in a shooting, near the end of a protest in Ferguson, that left a bullet lodged behind one officer’s ear and hit another in the shoulder. The two officers have been treated and released from the hospital.
“Holder said the shootings “turned my stomach,” but struck an optimistic tone, adding that he had seen “important signs of progress” in Ferguson in the days after the report was released. He said, however, the shootings won’t help. “These are people who protect us, keep us safe, and they have the right – they have the right – to come out at night,” Holder said.

““This heinous assault on two brave law enforcement officers was inexcusable and repugnant,” he added. “I condemn violence against any public safety officials in the strongest terms, and the Department of Justice will never accept any threats or violence directed at those who serve and protect our communities – from this cowardly action, to the killing of an officer in Philadelphia last week while he was buying a game for his son, to the tragic loss of a Deputy US Marshal in the line of duty in Louisiana earlier this week.”
However, speaking exclusively to Newslo after the press conference, the Attorney General emphasized that “the culprit(s) will be hunted down and punished most severely, but that that’s only half of the solution to the problem.”
“As long as there are guns out there, trouble and death will just keep claiming innocent people. That’s why I feel that gun control is the way to go, especially in flammable environments like Ferguson, where the situation can escalate quite rapidly, as we’ve all witnessed, unfortunately. But, if neither the criminals nor the police have guns, peace and the process of healing will have a much greater chance of coming to life. Violence is just not the way to go, ever,” Holder concluded.

Holder when you give up your hired guns then come talk to us about gun control
Why can’t he just go away!!!
What a dumb ass!
I feel like this shooting was done by holder, it just screams how he does business.
A claim of a statement said personally after a conference that is solely exclusive to this website. How convenient.
Absolutely “mandate classes for known criminals and police officers to attend sensitivity training classes. idiot
He resigned. Why doesn’t he just leave and let the assistant attorney general take over until a new attorney general is appointed (and NO, not Lynch).
“But, if neither the criminals nor the police have guns, peace and the process of healing will have a much greater chance of coming to life”.
Just HOW do you propose to get the guns out of JUST the criminals and NOT the law-abiding? Do you think we are STOOOOPID???
Holder …..you are every bit the idiot that you portray.
“.. especially in flammable environments like Ferguson, where the situation can escalate quite rapidly, as we’ve all witnessed, unfortunately.”
Really? You initially said that it was those evil cops who brought this on, Holder… “We must have new ‘cop training’.
And, since when did the law NOT take the guns away from criminals? Bah!
Sure, but keep things in order, ban the 1st Amendment in Ferguson FIRST and let’s see how that works out.
problem with Holders dream …..the shooters most likely were sent in by the panthers or one of sharptons groups… so it wont work……hes the reason along with bo that we still have issues
Holder and Obama are big. Racist they should have called it like it was a punk ass thug tried to beat a cop and the cop shot him . Obama and. Holder make u hate them and the ass holes in Ferguson white and black if them lazy people out there had jobs they wouldn’t have time to cause all these problems
More evidence of Holders missing brain
What a stupid mother phucker.
Once again Socialist/Democrats like their VICTIMS unarmed! Peace will prevail in Ferguson when Obama and the Democrat Party’s Campaign Organizers and paid CRIMINAL INSTIGATORS are removed/kicked out.
Then we need swords bullwhips, and gallows, and they need to be used on those thugs PUBLICLY ON A DAILY BASIS
Eric Holder and Obama and all of his staff are a munch of Stupid Fucks
No I don’t think so, no one is taking anyone’s rights from them. Its time to get your race baiting asses down and let the police do their jobs. You, Al Sharpton and Obama started all this crap racist bullshit lie that you even admitted it was. The only healing we need to start with is all 3 of you being brought up on charges and dismissed of your jobs. That would be a great start!
Have I stumbled in to a companion site to The Onion?
Now he condemns violence against police… Maybe he should of condemned it back when the thug MB attacked Officer Wilson??
Because the criminal element will gladly give up their weapons! Yeah right…
Hard to believe he could but HOLDER is getter dumber by the minute. People go to shootng at the cops at their station, and he want to take the cops guns lol ok
This is all Planned to see how far they can push with disarming and possibly create Marshall law there.
Yeah. Let’s ban everything. Everything. Do it now. That will solve everything. Gee, why didn’t we think of this sooner. We are so smart, so clever.
How is it possible in 2015 that we continue to perpetuate this stupidity on social media? 10 seconds of research would show the site is satire and the quote is fabricated. There are plenty of real issues to channel our passions, satire hardly ranks.
If you view newslo from a web browser you’ll see a Hide Facts / Show Facts option.
Gun laws have not worked in Australia. The normal law abiding people turned their guns in and somehow the do gooders presumed the crims would as well. hahahahahaha. Didn’t happen. You get people shot in Sydney and you know it is the muslims doing the shooting. That Holder is a fair dinkum wally.
Eric Holder has wasted a lot of time in the Justice Department accomplishing nothing other than causing racial tension and racial violence, like his lover Obama. Eric Holder and Obama keep talking about taking guns away from the people but this is the first time that I’ve heard his stupid idea about taking them away from cops too. I hope this is an eye opener for police everywhere. Holder and Obama are perfect examples of educated dummies with stupid ideas bigger than their sissy balls.
this is OBUMMERS(Obama) attempt at marshal law, if he can inact marshal law before his term is up then we have a new USA dictator, and then there is NO HOPE of getting that racist bastard out of office anytime soon.
In an ideal world guns would never have been, nor have needed to have been, invented. We can’t un-invent them though, so it is what it is.
One of law-enforcements mantras is that ‘you never give up your weapon’, and in Ferguson right now one can hardly blame them (so that was a stupid suggestion for a start), criminals are hardly likely to give up their weapons thus making themselves easy targets for arrest or worse (another stupid statement), and the ordinary citizens, the majority, caught in the crossfire in this violent situation feel the need to protect themselves clearly, (yet another stupid statement as he is implying that only police and criminals are involved). He also subliminally seems to be suggesting that anyone who is not a law enforcement officer is a criminal, especially if they are armed. (yet more stupidity, and cynicism this time). He is the Father of all stupidity.
In the UK we fortunately don’t see guns as a regular thing so that is only a distant opinion, but having read of other things he says, it seems a reasonable analysis.
We do though have idiotic politicians who we are going to replace in May with other idiotic politicians. Can I suggest you do the same when you get the soonest opportunity. 🙂
Disarm the police. Just when you think this “man” couldn’t be any more ludicrous.
lol so Eric !! why don;t you walk around with out armed security ???
Everyone commenting here clicked on “show facts” tab, right?
Saw that the quote is false.
Does it even matter that it’s not true.
Is he on stupid drugs? I can just see Law Endorcement agreeing to lay down their guns… Hey HOLDER are you freaking crazy?
Maybe he can use his magic to make guns go away. Outlawing guns will only put the police and citizens at risk. The criminals will still have guns because they don’t respect the law.
Violence isn’t the solution to most problems, but there are times, like righteous self-defense, when it’s the ONLY solution.
Says the guy who ran guns ILLEGALLY to the Mexican cartel. Unbelievable.
That idea is so scary.
Holder do you realize how stupid you portray yourself saying stupid shit like you always do! Yeah take all of he guns from both parties because of race.
Holder is a jerk and is responsible for this with his action!!
Just look at how many idiots are swallowing this fake post, FAKE QUOTE. Hey geniuses, yes, Holder is a pos who deserves to be prosecuted and hung for his crimes, but this is a HOAX, same as the fake Diane Feinstein quote you always comment on like blind, bleating sheeple
How can you be so stupid? Newslo is a satire site. People, this is not real. Do you know how stupid you look when you don’t even bother to check the source? America is turning into a nation of idiots.
What a Brilliant Dumb Ass. If you really want to kill some one YOU DON’T NEED A GUN. The Indians used bows and arrows, The African natives used spears, one woman used a car, and the Oklahoma City bomber used a homemade bomb…….. What Holder is really saying is that if only the government had guns then they would have complete control of it’s people.
Oh I hear birds chirping with his “peace and healing” nonsense.
