Eric Holder reports for jury duty

By Emi Kolawole

When it comes to jury duty, even the attorney general doesn't get a pass.

Attorney General Eric Holder was seen Monday warming a jury seat in Washington, D.C. Superior Court. Holder was not selected as a juror in the DUI case, but he was singled out for fulfilling his civic duty. The Christian Science Monitor reports that Judge Robert Morin noted that Holder's attendance was a teachable moment in a city where large chunks of the population (diplomats, students and felons) don't qualify to serve.

Holder's wife, Sharon Malone, reported for jury duty in September.

Attorney General Holder, please get the DOJ to prosecute people who make false reports of terrorism for revenge and financial gain. A 44 year old African-American who refused to work in the last 20 years, did this for personal gain in an effort to manipulate a civil case his mother was in(she lost). He started doing it to get revenge against her adversaries, and people who did not support his schemes. He turned it into something for financial gain. Playing games with local, state, and federal agencies. Causing airport delays and putting this country at risk is wrong. For the DOJ to give this man a pass, is worse. We know you are busy, and you should be commended for doing your civic duty, but now you should be clear on this issue. Do you want citizens to take terrorist alerts seriously? Is there a reason why the DOJ do not follow through with prosecuting citizens who make false reports of terrorism? Do these reports serve a purpose such as, keeping American citizens in line and afraid, so they will be obedient and not push back when their rights are taken or violated? There's a lot of money to be made by people who are willing to get revenge for you against your ex-spouse, co-worker, neighbor, or employer. For a cash money, they will make false reports of terrorism or terrorist meetings and other activities to several agencies, the church of your enemy, their employer, their kids school, etc. Making that type of false report can prevent your enemy from passing a background check, get your enemy on a no fly list, fired from a job, and ruin their business or business connections. There is big money to be made when you make false reports of terrorism against your enemy. Mr. Holder, what will you do to stop this before it gets out of hand. Agents chasing deliberate false reports, allow real terrorist to slip in the back door.
Thank you.

Don't tell me, They woke up Eric. Well wonders never cease. I don't suppose while he's awake he might Investigate the Bush/Cheney crimes against Humanity act.No, I didn't think so.

This is good. I would hate to be the white defendant in this case. Can mr. Holder be an impartial juror? Hmmmm? A black prosecutor on a jury?? We already know His views about Illegals in America. Get real people!
