    A former Federal Bureau of Investigation official said that the Obama administration exploited the Michael Brown shooting case for political purposes despite knowing all along that no civil rights laws were violated in the case.

    The Department of Justice announced Wednesday that it would not seek civil rights charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, who was not indicted in the shooting death of Michael Brown. The case sparked nationwide anti-police protests.

    Ron Hosko, who began working with the FBI in 1984 and became assistant director of the criminal investigative division in July 2012, described his view of the Obama administration’s Ferguson efforts.

    “DOJ has known from the very beginning that no violation of civil rights occurred when Officer Darren Wilson shot an aggressor, Michael Brown, in self-defense,” Hosko said in a statement after DOJ’s announcement Wednesday evening. “Instead of deliberating immediately and issuing their conclusion in the fall, the Obama Administration let the embers of civil unrest burn, fanned by the rhetoric of opportunistic race dividers.”

    “Perhaps the country could have found a better path — one that didn’t include painful, angry and divisive protests or framing law enforcement as impulsive racists who value black lives less than others,” said Hosko, who took over as president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund in April 2014.

    “The damage caused by this ordeal will be felt long after the Ferguson case is closed. Police officers across the country fear not only for their own safety, but also that sinister motives will be assigned to any legitimate and lawful action they take in the line of duty. The biggest victims of such risk aversion will be at-risk communities who most benefit from police patrol.”

    Of course they knew. It was never about civil rights. It was about creating division and hatred and it worked. You didn't think divide and conquer was only a part of Washington's foreign policy did you?

    I think that you can buy a house very cheap in Ferguson now. Thank the Democrats.

    See? We told you we need a nationalized police force just as big and well funded and equipped as our military to keep you safe from the threats we create.
