Disenfranchisement! Photo ID required for entrance to DOJ’s Ferguson town hall

Photo IDs are being required in order for people to perform a civic function? Suppression!

Paging Eric Holde… wait, on second thought, forget it:

An obscure arm of the Justice Department known as “America’s peacemaker” banned reporters and non-residents from two town hall meetings Monday in Ferguson, Missouri. The ban was enforced by Ferguson police officers, even though a city spokesman said local officials wouldn’t prevent outsiders from attending.

DOJ’s Community Relations Service, or CRS, a small government agency charged with conflict resolution, is mediating a series of meetings in the St. Louis suburb, which was rocked by protests after a police officer shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown last month.
Photos from one of the events, however, showed Ferguson police checking IDs at the door. Authorities also ejected a Ferguson resident for recording the meeting, but allowed him to return when he promised to stop. A local Democratic committeewoman was temporarily barred.

Put another way, nearly 70 percent of the residents of Ferguson, Missouri are black and yet Holder’s DOJ isn’t concerned that requiring photo ID will prevent any of them from attending an “important” town hall meeting? However, make that a requirement to cast a ballot and it’s suddenly a massive “depress the vote” effort.
