AG Holder: We Can't Tolerate Detroit's Violence
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said two young black men a week are killed in Detroit, and he noted 60 percent of young people are exposed to violence as victims or witnesses.
"This is shocking and all of this is unacceptable," Holder told more than 6,000 people at the NAACP Detroit Branch's annual dinner Sunday night at Cobo Center .
Holder told the crowd his office is directing resources to reduce childhood exposure to violence, raise awareness of its ramifications and study its causes.
