Eric Holder Cancels Speech At Police Academy Graduation Amid Protests


Amid threats of protest from local residents, Attorney General Eric Holder has cancelled plans to give the graduation speech at a police academy in Oklahoma City.

Campaign Political Gamesmanship

Protest organizers said Holder’s presence would be inappropriate, since he himself has failed to uphold the law.

“A lot of people just felt that it was very inappropriate for this man, with his track record, to speak to law enforcement officers that demand and expect to be backed up by the government working on behalf of the citizens, not against the citizens,” State Rep. Mike Turner (R.), who is running for U.S. congress, told the Washington Free Beacon…Turner said Holder has flouted the law when it comes to illegal immigration, the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning scandal, and the Second Amendment.

The Oklahoma City protest made national news Thursday afternoon, after Holder backed out of the speech shortly before the graduation ceremony began.

Let’s not forget that Holder was held in Contempt of Congress in 2012 for trying to impede the investigation into the Fast and Furious Scandal. For that reason alone, he’s probably not the best person to address a brand-new class of law enforcement officers.
