Seven Steps Eric Holder Should Take to Help Prevent More Police Officers from Being Murdered

Police Are Not Out to Kill Minorities  

December 22, 2014
It’s a lie that has caused protests and riots all over this nation, communities to be burned to the ground, police officers to be attacked and beaten, and horribly, two New York City police officers to be assassinated.
