Eric Holder on Crime

Attorney General-Designee


Concerned that so many young black men are prosecuted

As Superior Court judge for the District of Columbia, Holder became painfully aware that most of the defendants in his courtroom were “young black guys, 18 to 25.” He said to the Washington Post: “It’s not an easy thing to deal with, if you are a person who’s concerned about the black community, to see what ought to be the future standing before you charged with some sort of criminal offense.”
