Violence against police is unacceptable. Our prayers are with the officers in MO. Path to justice is one all of us must travel together. –bo

Eric Holder made a statement condemning the shootings and offering to help with the investigation.
"This heinous assault on two brave law enforcement officers was inexcusable and repugnant. 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 U.S. Marshal in the line of duty in Louisiana earlier this week. Such senseless acts of violence threaten the very reforms that nonviolent protesters in Ferguson and around the country have been working towards for the past several months. We wish these injured officers a full and speedy recovery. We stand ready to offer any possible aid to an investigation into this incident, including the department’s full range of investigative resources."
When Michael Brown, a proven common criminal who attacked a police officer, got shot by tbat police officer last August, President Obama sent three White House representatives to his funeral and within days Eric Holder himself went to Ferguson, along with 40 FBI agents, to find out why Brown was shot and who could be charged.
Two police officers get shot by one or more of the protesters in Ferguson - the President tweets about it and the Attorney General says his office "will stand ready to offer any possible aid to an investigation."
I don't know about anyone else but I have a pretty good idea where Obama and Holder stand - and it's not with police officers. Shame on you both. You should both resign as neither of you deserve to be responsible for the enforcement of American laws.
