ATTORNEY GENERAL LYNCH TO VISIT BALTIMORE AFTER POLICE DEATH

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other Department of Justice leaders are visiting Baltimore.

The new attorney general's visit Tuesday comes after protests over the death of Freddie Gray, who was fatally injured in police custody, and riots that prompted the governor to bring in the National Guard.

Lynch will be joined by head of the Civil Rights Division Vanita Gupta, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services Director Ronald Davis and Community Relations Service Director Grande Lum. They'll meet with city officials, members of Congress, law enforcement officials and faith and community leaders.

The FBI and the Justice Department are investigating Gray's death for potential civil rights violations. The Justice Department is expected to release results of a separate review of the police department's use of force practices in coming weeks.

Civil Rights Violation? 

IMO~The Police department is more likely to be guilty of the same problem the protesters have.  Rushing to assume the worst.

The police assumed Gray was guilty.

The rioters assumed the police were racially targeting Gray. 

Now, the DOJ is descending upon Baltimore to cater to unreasonable people.  Here we are...  Again...

And if there is one thing/lesson Holder taught us well? Federal Government catering to unreasonable thinkers doesn't solve a damn thing.
