Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday that the Justice Department is “resolved” to “combat violence involving or directed at young people,” announcing that it has opened an investigation into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin as it said it would last spring.
“We are resolved, as you are, to combat violence involving or directed at young people, to prevent future tragedies and to deal with the underlying attitudes, mistaken beliefs and stereotypes that serve as the basis for these too common incidents. And we will never stop working to ensure that – in every case, in every circumstance, and in every community – justice must be done,” Holder said at an event celebrating the 100th anniversary of the black sorority, Delta Sigma Theta in the nation’s capital.
