Holder's visit to Roosevelt sparks protest

A visit to a Roosevelt church Sunday by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder drew protesters angry about his decision to hold the 9/11 terror trials in New York City.

"[The trials] belong back in the military," says Stephen Morris, of Roslyn. "These are not citizens, they're terrorists and they killed."

Holder was a guest speaker at Memorial Presbyterian Church, where his mother and brother worship. He declined comment about the protest and instead spoke to congregants about positive change needed within the community.

"This spiritual reawakening must bring us back to guiding concepts and first principles," said Holder. "Again - responsibility, respect, restraint and hard work."
