Excellent point, spanone.. What I've read about McCulloch and his bizarre presser ..

he was setting the stage as much as he could for riots.

And to what purpose? To rationalize the decision by the Grand Jury that he made happen. Or as the first poster says.. "so it would become the story." Prosecutor my

Ferguson Prosecutor Robert McCulloch Gives Bizarre Press Conference

Social media isn't the problem," author Maureen Johnson said. "Shooting children is the problem."

CNN legal expert Jeffrey Toobin called the press conference "an extended whine" and "entirely inappropriate and embarrassing."

Holder frustrated with Mo. governor over actions before Ferguson grand jury decision

Source: Washington Post.com

"Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has expressed concerns privately to Missouri officials this week about their recent actions in advance of a grand jury’s decision in the Michael Brown case.

A top aide to Holder called the office of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) earlier this week to express Holder’s displeasure and “frustration” that the governor had declared a state of emergency at a news conference and activated the National Guard in advance of the grand jury decision in the Ferguson shooting, expected to be announced in the next few days, according to a Justice Department official.

“Instead of de-escalating the situation, the governor escalated it,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the subject. “He sent the wrong message. The tone of the press conference was counterproductive.”

Senior Justice officials also told U.S. attorneys around the country on Tuesday to be in close touch with local police to prepare for any possible violence in their cities, should the grand jury decision not result in an indictment of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of Brown, an unarmed black teenager, on Aug. 9."

There's a vid at the link with AG Holder .. "expressing sympathies with the Protesters.."

I haven't seen anything about this and thought it should be known..

Elizabeth Warren on President Obama's New Immigration Policy + Jerry Brown & Bill de Blasio

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D): "Look, I was proud to vote for comprehensive immigration reform a year and a half ago, and the Republicans haven't done anything since then. They keep blocking bringing this to a vote. So, I support the president in taking what actions he can within the law to help families, to help businesses and try to patch up this broken immigration system,” she said on CNN.

Mayor de Blasio

Bonus: Bernie Sanders pampango http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=5848849

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today on President Barack Obama’s proposal to protect millions of immigrants in the United States. He also commented on the refusal of major television networks to broadcast the president’s prime-time speech:

“I’m a strong supporter of immigration reform and of the need to provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants. I support President Obama’s action to help working families stay together. I think everyone agrees that the current immigration system is broken. The Senate passed an immigration reform bill more than a year ago but House Republicans refused to even consider it. They have left the president with little choice but to act on his own.

“It is incomprehensible that the major television networks have said they will not broadcast the president’s speech tonight. People can be for immigration reform or against it, but clearly we need an intelligent, informed debate. Unless the networks change their plans, they will be doing a disservice to the American people and failing in their obligation to serve the public good.”


Attentionwhores.. they want to step all over the President's brilliant Immigration Reform

Speech.. but Obama goes to Del Sol High School in Nevada today to give another speech!
