Obama’s Department of Justice took over two town hall meetings in Ferguson, Missouri.
The fact that they were present wasn’t so troubling as the fact that they were limiting admission to residents of Ferguson only. Owners of Ferguson businesses who lived outside of town were not welcome, and neither were religious leaders or even residents of the apartments where the “gentle giant” Michael Brown was shot and killed after attacking a police officer (after Brown robbed a nearby convenience store).
Even more troubling was that the media was ejected and windows closed so nobody outside would know what was said.
The Obama administration has little respect for not only the Second Amendment, but the entire Bill of Rights.

Local media is reporting that the Obama administration has taken control of access to two Ferguson, Missouri townhall meetings on the Mike Brown shooting being held Monday evening. The Department of Justice has limited attendance to Ferguson residents only and has ordered ID checks to gain entry. DOJ banned reporters. In a First Amendment irony, the meetings are being held in churches: Wellspring and Pour Lady of Guadalupe.
The shooting of unarmed 18 year old black robber by white police officer Darren Wilson after a confrontation that occurred just minutes after Brown robbed a convenience store has stoked national controversy.
The meetings, originally organized by the Ferguson government, were hijacked by the Justice Department’s Community Relations Service (aka the Peacekeepers) just days before the meetings were to be held.
This is the same DOJ unit that was accused of helping organize protests against George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case.
David Hunn, a reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported he was ejected from the meeting by the Obama administration: “Just got kicked out of DOJ #Ferguson meeting at Our Lady of Guadalupe. Signed in, showed ID, sat down.”
There were reports that the Justice Department ordered the windows at the meetings closed to prevent the barred media from even hearing what was being said at the meetings.
This is the same Department of Justice that opposes voter ID laws.
