Holder to Activists Who Sought Charges Against Brown: ‘Read this Report’
ERIC HOLDER: "But I know these are not consistent with some people's expectations. To all of those who have closely followed this case and who have engaged in the important national dialogue that it has inspired, I urge you -- I urge you to read this report in full. Now I recognize that the findings in our report may leave some to wonder how the department's findings can differ so sharply from some the initial widely-reported accounts of what transpired. And I want to emphasize that the strength and integrity of mesh's justice system -- America's justice system has rested on the ability to deliver impartial results in precisely these type of difficult circumstances, adhering strictly to the facts and the law regardless of assumptions. Yet it remains not only valid but essential to question how a strong hold of version of events was able to take hold swiftly and to be accepted so readily."
