A night of relative calm fell over Ferguson, Mo., following U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s visit to the city, where tensions have run high since the killing of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by Darren Wilson, a white police officer.
Hundreds of blacks were "color proud" (wink wink Eric "My People" Holder) in Memphis. Conservatives and Republicans are silent (save those sites engaging in racial awareness masturbating -- RAM)
Holder, who was in town to be briefed on the Department of Justice’s federal civil rights investigation into the case, met with Brown’s parents and mingled with townsfolk and students as he went about his duties.

He had said that he hoped his visit “will have a calming influence on the area,” according to a pool report. The attorney general met with students at Florissant Valley Community College, in the north part of St. Louis, according to pool reports, before meeting with community leaders.
Holder also spoke while at the college, explaining that he understood the mistrust of law enforcement. He even related his own experiences while living in Georgetown: “I understand that mistrust. I am the attorney general of the United States. But I am also a black man,” Holder said, according to the Washington Post. “I think about my time in Georgetown—a nice neighborhood of Washington—and I am running to a picture movie at about 8 o’clock at night. I am running with my cousin. Police car comes driving up, flashes his lights, yells, ‘Where you going? Hold it!’ I say, ‘Whoa, I’m going to a movie.’ ”
A rabid teen mob swarmed a Tennessee grocery parking lot and attacked people at random, including two young workers who tried to help and were knocked out by Halloween pumpkins, a sickening video shows.
As many as 100 to 125 kids were involved in the brutal attacks outside the Memphis Kroger store Saturday night that may have been part of a "knockout game"-style challenge aimed at injuring innocent people, a witness told local WREG-TV.
So far, one teen — caught on video kicking a young Kroger worker in the head — has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault, aggravated riot and other counts.
Police didn't identify him, saying only that he was underage.
Cops vowed to hunt down other thugs involved in the attack and were asking for the public's help in bringing them to justice.
"It is extremely troubling to see how many young people were involved, especially on the heels of last week's youth forum," Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong said in a statement.
"A lot of our citizens are working to provide safe and productive alternatives for our youth. For those that choose not to take advantage of these opportunities, we will work tirelessly to identify, locate and hold you accountable," Armstrong said.
A female witness taped the scene with her cellphone.
"All these (expletive) kids, f--king hood rats," she says, laughing.
Moments later, she shouts out, "Hold on, they got a white dude."
As the violence around her escalates, she ducks into a store to avoid the mob.
Seconds later, two young goons are shown savagely kicking a young man in a blue Kroger shirt.
The victim lies on the ground covering his head, while rioters pelt him with large pumpkins.
