Fox News is anything if not relentless. They find a way, no matter what the circumstance, to blame the country's Commander In Chief or our Attorney General, Eric Holder, for only making matters worse. Doocy plays two clips to support his claims. AG Holder says,
...we must seek to heal the breakdown in trust.
President Obama said,
We are not going to let up until we see a strengthening of the trust and the strengthening of the accountability that exists between our community and our law enforcement.
"America's Lawyer" Peter Johnson Jr. is just appalled that these two guys decided to comment on the events that have gotten the whole country protesting. How dare they! He said,
"Rarely have we heard so many discussions of trust that will undermine trust in the criminal justice system. This is nonsense that we're hearing from the president and the attorney general, and I say that respectfully for their offices and for their services (but not them) To hint that grand juries are racially based...If we say to Americans at home today, the grand jury doesn't matter. Al Sharpton says that the grand jury is a secret proceeding (which it is) and can't be trusted..To hint that the decisions (of grand juries) are racially motivated We need a new paradigm. What do we need? A new constitution, a new bill of rights, do we need a new constitutional amendment?"
The real problem is Holder and Obama just want to undermine our current judicial system because they are the real racists. They are the ones that are always injecting race into events that are spawned from white people shooting or choking black people. Of course there's racism. To appear avant-garde, Johnson claimed that even this network (Fox News) is dumping on the grand jury system, and that's just not cool at all.
We can't say time and time again that the system sucks. The system needs to be taken down, that grand juries have got it all wrong...the grand juries don't know what they're doing...It's certainly not the President's job or the Attorney General's job to dump on the grand jury system that each and every state has, based on the common law.
Doocy asks what else could Al Sharpton say, how can he accept these findings when he's so entrenched in the black community? Doocy says,
"that's not going to be good for him."
"Well it has to be,"
says Johnson Jr. These people should accept the grand jury proceedings no matter what the findings. It doesn't matter what has transpired lately, that black lives don't seem to matter. By criticizing the American Rule of Law, which is the best in the world, we are tearing down our police, our D.A.'s and those 24 New Yorkers that chose to serve in a Grand Jury.
Junior Johnson says that President Obama and Attorney General Holder need to pull it back, we can't have strife in the streets. Let's respect the rule of law. The Grand Jury has spoken in both cities, we need to accept their findings. Let's not tear down our system. Never mind that the outcomes of both Ferguson and Staten Island amount to the fact that black lives are far less important than cops. Our leaders should respect their findings, because they've been around for a long time. Ahhhh, now it makes perfect sense, the grand jury has been around for awhile, so it must be pretty damned great. No disparaging allowed.
We should learn that it's not the least bit unusual for a videotaped incident that the coroner rules as a homicide to escape any indictment. So by commenting on an unusually volatile incident that spurred peaceful demonstrations nationwide, these two black dudes are just causing unnecessary trouble. Our criminal justice system is the best in the world, that's why we have the highest prison population on earth and the greatest number of mentally ill who are incarcerated when they need treatment. These black leaders should know their place in this near flawless white man's system.
