Eric Holder: Shooting of Police Officers In Ferguson ’Inexcusable and Repugnant’

Attorney General Eric Holder issued a statement this morning in reaction to the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri.

“This heinous assault on two brave law enforcement officers was inexcusable and repugnant,” Holder says, condemning the violence against public safety officials.

The two police officers were shot as protestors gathered in front of the police station – the same day the police chief resigned.

Holder seemed particularly upset that the shootings took place after his department issued a report highlighting civil rights abuses in Ferguson.

“Such senseless acts of violence threaten the very reforms that nonviolent protesters in Ferguson and around the country have been working towards for the past several months,” he said.

Holder insisted he and his entire department would be willing to assist the police force in finding the responsible shooter.

“We wish these injured officers a full and speedy recovery. We stand ready to offer any possible aid to an investigation into this incident, including the department’s full range of investigative resources,” he said. “And we will continue to stand unequivocally against all acts of violence against cops whenever and wherever they occur.”
