Writer Says Eric Holder Should Tell Ferguson Protesters to “Pull Up Their Pants”

As Attorney General Eric Holder heads to Missouri on Wednesday to deal with the unrest inJason Riley Ferguson, one Wall Street Journal editorial board member says Holder should be more concerned with the attire of protesters than the deαth of Michael Brown.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley said Eric Holder’s arrival in the city was just part of Obama’s attempt to be the “race-healer-in-chief” and discussed what Holder should say while he’s there.

“These looters and rioters do not need to hear from the attorney general that criticism of Obama is race-based,” Riley told Fox News anchor Bret Bauer. “What they need to hear from this Black man in this position — the nation’s leading law enforcement official — is that they need to stay out of trouble with the law. They need to pull up their pants and finish school and take care of their kids. That is the message they need to hear.”

While in Ferguson, Holder will meet with local as well as federal law enforcement agents regarding the case.

In an op-ed for the St. Louis Dispatch, Holder discussed some core concerns at play in Ferguson.

“At the core of these demonstrations is a demand for answers about the circumstances of this young man’s death and a broader concern about the state of our criminal justice system,” Holder stated. “At a time when so much may seem uncertain, the people of Ferguson can have confidence that the Justice Department intends to learn — in a fair and thorough manner — exactly what happened.”

The Washington Post reports that a grand jury could begin hearing evidence against Officer Darren Wilson, who gunned down unarmed teen Michael Brown, as early as Wednesday. Still, it could take until October for all of the evidence to be presented, said St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch.
