The Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder is engaged in "racially inflammatory rhetoric'' in its handling of the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., says Tom Fitton, president of the government watchdog Judicial Watch.

"[Its] actions are designed to increase, frankly, division rather than keep the peace," Fitton said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"I read today that they have dozens of FBI agents going around Missouri trying to figure out what went on in this incident.

"Do you remember any reports recently about dozens of FBI agents doing anything else . . . maybe 9/11 or maybe the Boston bombing?''

In addition, Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on Brown's body, citing "extraordinary circumstances."

Fitton said Holder has an "ideologically far-left view'' on racial issues, and is viewing law and order in Ferguson "through the Jessie Jackson-Al Sharpton lens."

"It's one thing to have Al Sharpton down there. I mean, he's been an activist who's not been reliable and has been an inciter many, many years,'' Fitton said.

"But to have the attorney general . . . behave in such a way, to really validate the violence that's going on as opposed to just provide for the public safety.

"There is no doubt in my mind that the Justice Department wants to prosecute this police officer whether he's innocent or guilty and this race-based decision-making . . . You can't trust this Justice Department to enforce the law in a racially neutral way.''
