Department of Justice May Sue Ferguson Police Department


Just when the city of Ferguson, Mo., thought its troubles were fading away, the Department of Justice is considering a lawsuit against Ferguson’s police department, sources tell CNN.

The DOJ reportedly will not charge Officer Darren Wilson, but is preparing a lawsuit against the Ferguson Police Department over racially discriminatory policing if the department does not agree to make changes. Recent allegations about discriminatory ticketing practices have increased scrutiny of the troubled police department and could make their way into the lawsuit if the DOJ follows through.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that he expects to release details of the DOJ’s Ferguson investigation before he leaves office in the next few weeks.

The DOJ would request court supervision to keep Ferguson police accountable for their treatment of minorities.

A national debate over police treatment of minorities erupted after the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson. When the involved officer, Darren Wilson, was not charged in the death, riots erupted in the city leading to looting and violence.
