As reported by the Marxists over at Think Progress, the racist, law enforcement hating Department of Justice is infringing upon the liberties of Ferguson police officers (my emphasis).

In addition, the officers who have covered their nameplates no doubt for the sake of security for both themselves and their families, have now been ordered to wear “readable” nameplates in spite of the fact that Ferguson remains a hot bed of hate most coming from the residents and outsiders taking advantage of a crisis that certain factors refuse to let die.

… in response to civil unrest, which gained steam again after Brown’s memorial was burned to the ground on Tuesday, and the use of the slogan “I Am Mike Brown,” officers were photographed wearing the bracelets supporting the officer who killed him.

The DOJ has proven itself to be biased and morally corrupt ideologically and to the point that it is destroying this nation.

There is not one person in the Civil Rights Division who has proven his or herself to be above racism, politics and ideology.
