    Justice Dept. Inquirery to Focus on Practices of Police in Ferguson

    The Justice Department will open a broad civil rights investigation into police practices in Ferguson, Mo, where a white police officer killed an unarmed black teenager last month and set off days of racially charged unrest, the cities police chief and other officials said Wednesday.

    Read the article here: http://nytimes.com/2014/09/04/us/pol...ices.html?_r=0

    The results of this investigation will be interesting, but I doubt that they will surprise many black people in Missouri.

    I hope it spreads to police practices all over the country. Major change is needed to restore integrity to the police profession.

    It also wouldn't surprise me if there was no wrongdoing or anything bad, just move along folks, nothing to see here. /sarcasm off

    LOL !!

    So the Gentle Giants civil rights apparently were NOT violated ?

    It appears the Justice department knows exactly what happened and they've decided there's NO CASE against Darren Wilson so they've moved on to a generic investigation of Police behaviour instead.

    Ridiculous. If Eric Holder wasn't such a Race hustlers himself he would be investigating the people who helped whip this thing up into a frenzy.

    Add to that the DoJ's insistence that the convenience store tape not be released in a timely manner which may have quelled some of the violence.

    Isn't that special, a federal investigation means Brown's rights were not violated, and there's no case against Wilson, oh what an amazing deduction.

    The DoJ once did an investigation on the police in my hometown. The only difference between that and this was that we didn't fuss about it (nor even the situation before that made them investigate) and a solution was made after the investigation supported our case.

    Ferguson was dumb. Everyone in Ferguson is dumb.

    From the link:

    Missouri N.A.A.C.P. leaders lodged another Justice Department complaint against the St. Louis County Police Department last year, accusing its officers of engaging in widespread racial profiling in an attempt to crack down on crime in and around the South County Center, a shopping mall.

    Mr. Pruitt said one of the incidents referred to in the complaint involved two white officers who arrested 145 black men and women in a 30-day period in the mall area for outstanding warrants.

    “We determined that the stops were not legitimate stops,” Mr. Pruitt said. “They stopped them because they were black. The question is, how many blacks did they have to go through to find 145 with warrants?
    If you have complaints of blacks committing crimes in an area then who, other than blacks in the area, would you consider as likely suspects to stop? We go through stops/searches of millions of airline passengers to catch a handful of "terrorists" and consider that a rational practice. It should be the responsibility of the NAACP to know the ratio of stops to arrests if that is the basis of their "profiling" complaint. If you have an arrest warrant (or citizen complaint) then you know the age, race and basic description of the person sought - you do not stop old white ladies if you are looking for a young black male.

    It's a " BROAD " investigation into overall Police practices.

    NOT a specific investigation into Darren Wilsons actions because they know the truth. They've interviewed CREDIBILE witnesses.

    Its their way of placating the idiots who jumped to conclusions and nothing will come of it

    We should also invite the UN to come in and investigate. We did receive a warning from them.
