Eric Holder Slams “Stand Your Ground” Laws, Claims Self-Defense May “Sow Dangerous Conflict”
by Tyler Durden
US AG Eric Holder, who it appears is not busy committing perjury before Congress, or failing to prosecute one single TBTF bank due to their systemic nature, or eavesdropping on the AP, or recording every American electronic communication, or selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels, or generally using the constitution as one-ply toilet paper, has found some time to peddle his thoughts on the Trayvon Martin shooting at an NAACP convention in Orlando. So what did the head of the US department of justice say? He proceeds to blast “Stand your ground” laws, because, you see, having the right to self-defense is dangerous and may lead to escalations. No really: “Separate and apart from the case that has drawn the nation’s attention, it’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods.” In other words, Holder is spreading a very christian message: when slapped, present the other cheek.
