We’re with you. That’s the message Attorney General Eric Holder says he delivered to the people of Ferguson, Missouri, when he visited Wednesday to check in on the federal civil rights investigation into the shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by a white police officer. Holder told reporters Thursday in Washington, “This attorney general and this Department of Justice stand with the people of Ferguson.” Holder has assigned scores of FBI agents and Justice Department investigators to look into Brown’s August 9 death in the suburban St. Louis city. A St. Louis County grand jury began hearing testimony in the case Wednesday, but it’s not expected to make a decision on charges against Wilson before mid-October. While Holder said agents have made “significant progress” in their investigation, he said it will still take time to complete and asked for the community’s support.
