They are going all in on this one. From Holder’s statement.
The full resources of the Department of Justice have been committed to the investigation into Michael Brown’s death. This inquiry will take time to complete, but we have already taken significant steps. Approximately 40 FBI agents and some of the Civil Rights Division’s most experienced prosecutors have been deployed to lead this process, with the assistance of the United States Attorney in St. Louis. Hundreds of people have already been interviewed in connection with this matter. On Monday, at my direction, a team of federal medical examiners conducted an independent autopsy.
Seven people have been killed and at least 29 others wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, police said.
Two people were killed and another wounded in what police said was a “domestic-related” shooting in Roseland late Sunday.
The shooting occurred about 9:55 p.m. in the 400 block of West 104th Street, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said, citing preliminary information.
Two people were dead at the scene, said Greer, who added that the shooting is believed to be “domestic-related.”
A man was shot and killed early Sunday in the Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side.
Police found 26-year-old Kardeon Glover, of the 4100 block of West Grenshaw, with a gunshot wound to the head on the sidewalk in the 900 block of North Karlov about 1:15 a.m., authorities said. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
No FBI agents or any of the Civil Rights Division’s most experienced prosecutors will be deployed to Chicago. It’s just not sexy enough.
