The Ferguson police department is under fire for alleged racism thanks to Eric Holder. Eric Holder was clearly out to get them. The way he “got them” was through the use of statistics on traffic stops, claiming white officers routinely stopped blacks and ticketed them.
One of the common tactics used by the race hustlers to accuse people of racism is traffic stop statistics.
Anthony Gray, an attorney for the Brown family, lashed out viciously against the Ferguson police department and Officer Darren Wilson. He was also a police chief ticketing blacks, making big bucks off them. He was not the only black chief doing it. There are mayors who are responsible as well.
Anthony Gray was the Director of Public Safety and is commonly referred to as the police chief of nearby Pine Lawn. Pine Lawn is a small, impoverished, nearly all black community with a police department widely considered to be one of the worst in the St. Louis region.
Gray was in charge of the Pine Lawn Police Department for most of 2014. He is responsible for 17,000 tickets against almost all blacks in one year.
Listen to this exchange between Bill O’Reilly and a talk show host from St. Louis, McGraw Milhaven.
O’REILLY: Nobody in America should be a target of tickets for revenue. Last word.
MILHAVEN: No question. No question, Bill. And, yes, the Justice Department has started the job and pointed out that, yes, there needs to be wholesale changes. But Ferguson doesn’t live on an island. There are little municipals all around Ferguson that you have to drive through.
And look, Floridale Hills (ph) during all of this invented their own police department. They have a population of 800 people. They are the mayors are black, the police chief are black, they are targeting everybody. That’s how they are surviving.
O’REILLY: Yes, because they want money. It’s a shakedown.
MILHAVEN: You mentioned Benjamin Crump. Pine Lawn has a population of 3,000 people. They wrote 17,000 tickets last year.
O’REILLY: All right. That’s got to stop.
MILHAVEN: Guess who their police chief is. Guess who their police chief is.
O’REILLY: And now the attorney general — who is your police chief?
MILHAVEN: The police chief’s name is Anthony Gray who is the family attorney for Michael Brown.
Sheriff David Clarke thinks it’s just a witch hunt. The first thing race hustlers do is go to traffic stops, he said on The Kelly File.
That doesn’t mean the report should be discarded. Racism is terrible and if it’s happening, it must be addressed but those statistics need to be looked at very closely. Much of it is a witch hunt.
There is some evidence it’s true.
Two Ferguson police and a court clerk have sent 7 racist emails. They have been forced to resign. Among them were one depicting President Barack Obama as a chimpanzee and one mocking blacks through speech stereotypes, using a story about child support. A third described a man trying to get “welfare” for his dogs because they are “mixed in color.”
