Eric Holder Shares Personal Experience With Police Harassment

AG Eric Holder in Ferguson Recalls Being 'Angry' After Police Encounters

The AG recalled being stopped by police on the way to a movie in Georgetown, a well-to-do suburb of Washington, DC. “Police car comes driving up, flashes his lights, yells, 'Where you going? Hold it,’” Holder told residents. “Now my cousin started mouthing off. I'm like, 'This is not where we want to go. Keep quiet.'” “At the time that [the police officer] stopped me, I was a federal prosecutor. I wasn't a kid. I was a federal prosecutor. I worked at the United States Department of Justice,” he said.

Holder said the encounter left him “angry and upset.” The attorney general also described having his car searched during routine traffic stops on the New Jersey Turnpike.

“I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was,” he said.
