Concerning Eric Garner’s chokehold death, Attorney General Loretta Lynch (D) has made up her mind. NYPD officers are guilty of murder, and she wants a prompt hanging, no more delays. Those impertinent New York City-based FBI agents, all of whom have recommended against Federal charges against the officers, have been relieved of their duties on the case and replaced en masse by FBI agents from…elsewhere. Lynch’s DC-located Civil Rights Division of her DoJ have taken the matter over.
Never mind that a State investigation has already been completed, and the State’s prosecutor failed to get a grand jury to indict—in an environment (not limited to New York) where a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich—any of NYPD’s finest in the case.
Lynch Knows Better.
