Patrick on Ferguson: ‘Sick of unarmed, black men being shot by police’

GREENFIELD — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick today said he is “sick of unarmed, black men being shot by police” in his first comments since a black teenager was killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., spurring riots, looting and a heavily militarized response by police.

“I’m sick of it,” Patrick said with a heavy sigh. “I’m sick of unarmed, black men being shot by police. I’m sick of the lawlessness on the streets. I think everyone is just tired of when are we going to get through with this kind of thing.”

Patrick, who made history in 2006 when he was elected the state’s first black governor — at the time, only the second black governor nationwide — said the U.S. faces painful hurdles on race relations.

“ We have a great challenge in this country acknowledging the extraordinary progress we have made on race relations — much of it in my lifetime. And at the same time, acknowledging how much remains to be done,” the governor told reporters, speaking with emotion. “You hear people from time to time who are 100 percent in one or the other of those views, that everything’s been done and nothing remains, or everything remains to be done.

“In fact,” he said, “we’re a lot further along, but there are still issues. There are still sensitivities and there are still things that … benefit from heightened sensitivity and better training.”

Patrick said he has confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder, who traveled to Ferguson today to meet with FBI agents investigating the circumstances of the shooting of Michael Brown, 18, by Officer Darren Wilson.

“I’m hopeful with the attorney general of the United States going out that federal law enforcement will be fully engaged and, I hope, bring to a decision quickly,” he said. “But that’s a really tough mission he’s set out on and I know that from some experience.”

Patrick previously headed the civil rights division of the Department of Justice under President Clinton.

Asked how he would have handled Ferguson differently, the governor said: “Well, I’m glad I don’t have to.”

I am really disappointed...

Mike's fundraiser raised U$104k in 6 days
Meanwhile, the murderer's fundraiser raised U$78k in 2 days....

I see a replay of Trayvon Martin's case happening... the murderer's fundraiser will raise millions, he will walk free and black men will continue to be killed... until the next "we had enough" death that will make the police chill for a while with the killing.

Ragin I think that might be why Holder wants to quit.   Loved this article for discussing some of the office politics.   I had no idea they banned him the speaking!   So Obama won't let him leave but he won't let him TALK either.  That's bullsh*t.  Eric can apparently take the heat. 

"The bad blood goes all the way back to a month into Obama’s first term—as the West Wing staff was working 18-hour days to keep the economy from collapsing—when Holder jolted Obama’s team seemingly out of nowhere. Tellingly, the subject was race. Holder informed the White House he planned to deliver a Black History Month speech but never got around to telling Obama’s aides what he would actually say, a habit that would infuriate the White House time and again over the years—and underscore Holder’s special standing in Obama’s world.

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,” Holder declared to a gathering of Justice Department employees—a bombshell assertion that caused the predictable rage among Obama’s attackers on the right, who accused him of playing the race card.

Obama’s top political aides—white liberals to a man, and they were all men—didn’t necessarily disagree with Holder’s sentiment; they just thought it was a dumb way of saying it and dangerously ill-timed to boot. Obama was ticked off, too, and did nothing to stop his top advisers David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, Robert Gibbs and Jim Messina from severely restricting Holder’s public utterances and imposing a ban on Sunday show appearances that stands to this day.

But the president’s anger only went so far, and Holder takes no small satisfaction in outlasting those early rivals. In interviews, many of the officials I spoke with offered a blunt explanation for his bond with Obama: For all the president’s success at breaking barriers, Obama is often the only black person in the room when a major decision is being made—unless Holder, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett or National Security Adviser Susan Rice is present. This isn’t just about skin pigment, and it’s not a phenomenon unique to Obama; all presidents draw close to them people who share common personal experiences and their deepest priorities, people they trust, who provide the elusive “comfort level” they seek in times of extreme stress. John F. Kennedy had his “Irish Mafia,” Ronald Reagan had his California buddies, Bill Clinton surrounded himself with pals from Arkansas."

Thank you CC.
I almost feel sorry for the yt people on the other side this coming week. As my daughter says, "Drag them Mom!"
Wish I was lending physical support to #Ferguson.
But, I am contractually restricted from doing all sorts of things. All in the name of protecting the image and reputation of the firm. We even have insurance riders with prohibitions.
I understand it, but in times like this, it's hard.
So instead, my husband and I, and all of our friends, open our check books.
We all have children and we all know the game.
What I need to stop doing is wishing heart attacks to them all. But just can't bring myself to do it.

Don't worry sexy.  That's not the only fund.  Much has been done for the family directly and people are using personal funds etc to join the protest and support the causes around the protests.  Mike family is in this for the long haul and I think once things settle they will have more than enough to cover expenses. 

This is about Mike Brown but its bigger than him too.

Yes! Don't forget about Miriam Carey.  She was unarmed, mentally ill, no where near the White house and shot in her car.
