Holder Calls Trip To Ferguson "Constructive"
Aug. 22, 2014
(Washington, DC) -- Attorney General Eric Holder calls his trip to the troubled St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri "constructive." In a Justice Department news conference, Holder vowed the investigation into the death of an unarmed black teenager will be fair, thorough and independent. Michael Brown was recently shot and killed by a police officer, prompting violent protests and clashes with police. Meantime, Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said only seven arrests were made during street protests in Ferguson on Thursday, with no tear gas or bullets used by police.
