Justice Department Investigation of the Ferguson Police Department

This report, released after an extensive investigation of the Ferguson Police Department by the Civil Rights Divison of the Department of Justice, to some extent vindicates the claims of countless social justice activists who took to the streets in protest after the killing of Ferguson resident Mike Brown by Officer Darren Wilson. Those who doubt the notion that black and poor Americans are unjustly and especially victimized by significant segments of our criminal justice system should examine the contents of this detailed document and reconsider their presumptions. Ferguson, and its problems, are representative of America writ-large. For that reason alone, this report is required reading for conscientious citizens across the country.
