Fanning the flames

It is now widely reported that the police officer that shot Michael Brown, had been seriously injured prior to the shooting.
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department's top brass told
“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.” 
That kind of changes things, now doesn't it?

Not, apparently, for Attorney General Eric Holder, who met with the family of Michael Brown and told reporters of traffic stops from his own past, that he is certain were some sort of racial profiling and intentional humiliation.

Holder also ordered that Michael Brown's body undergo a third autopsy, because two just isn't enough, and allowing the family to bury the body sooner rather than later, doesn't keep the race hate at an acceptable level.

I don't have all the facts, I don't know all the players, but one thing is certain.  Our government is encouraging the violence in Ferguson.  They are taking deliberate steps, making inflammatory statements, and putting on a show that they know will only fan the flames.
