    Ferguson, Missouri releases details of proposed consent decree

    The city of Ferguson, Missouri, released details on Wednesday of a tentative deal with the U.S. Justice Department to reform its police department and resolve a federal probe following the 2014 fatal shooting of a black teenager that ignited national protests.

    The shooting of 18-year-old, unarmed Michael Brown by white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson exposed tension between the city government and the largely black community outside St. Louis that erupted into violent protests after a grand jury chose not to indict the officer.

    "It was one of a series of highly publicized killings of black men mostly by white police officers that set off a nationwide debate about the use of police force, especially against minorities.

    The Justice Department issued a scathing report last year that documented discriminatory actions by Ferguson police and the municipal court system, particularly against African-Americans. The department also launched a probe into whether the city systematically violated citizens' rights.

    Under the terms of the proposed agreement, which were posted on the city's website, the Ferguson police department would be required to give its officers bias-awareness training, implement a "robust" accountability system and ensure that police stop, search and arrest practices do not discriminate on the basis of race or other protected characteristics."

    The shooting of 18-year-old, unarmed Michael Brown (who strong-arm robbed a liquor store minutes earlier, and attacked an officer in his car) by white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson exposed tension between the (largely black) city government and the largely black community outside St. Louis that erupted into violent protests after a grand jury chose (weighed evidence and concluded) not to indict the officer.

    Man, being in charge of adjectives must be hard work for the regressive left.

    Last line of the story:
    The Justice Department is also investigating the police departments of Baltimore and Chicago to determine whether they carried out similar systematic violations of citizens' civil rights.


    :haha: What violation??

    I was watching re runs of the show COPS the other day. It should be a pre-requisite that anyone who wants to criticize police need to watch at least 4 hours before they open their mouths. The shit they pit up with would drive anyone to crack a Perp with a Billy Club across the knee at some point.

    Must be something happening even here where the police are backing off the criminals. Just in the last few days, it seems that we have had an inordinate number of crimes - shootings; stabbings; one guy ran from the police in a stolen car and the police totally backed off and the guy went on to kill (t-bone) another motorist.

    If officers don't have bias or racially profile, they aren't doing their jobs.

    Should a 65 year old white lady be extensively screened when she goes to the airport? Or should resources go towards Muslims?

    If groups of young people should walk down the street and we know blacks commit more crime than whites while only being 13% of the population, should the whites be watched as closely as the blacks? Also when it comes to traffic issues blacks are far, far more likely than whites to break speeding laws, not wearing seatbelts, etc. per percentage of population.

    I know facts suck, but change your statistics and then you may have an argument.

    This Ferguson thing is even worse than not having police be discriminating, this Michael Brown was committing crimes and tried to kill a police officer. Obama and his DOJ could never admit that Michael Brown did wrong and was responsible for his own death. They did a huge disservice to all the Citizens of Ferguson.

    I agree, I think people who have a connection to the community should be the ones to police it for many reasons.

    What do you think should happen when any officer gives you a command? - Only listen if they are your color???? That's ridiculous.

    Imagine how different things would have been if this president and his DOJ had come out and told all the Citizens of Ferguson that this would have all been avoided if Michael Brown had not committed a crime. It's so simple and yet this administration wants to destroy the Black communities.

    Michael Brown was a fucking punk that was sent down the wrong path by having scumbag loser parents. Was heading for a stint in the state prison. All too common in these neighborhoods and there should definitely be federal involvement and it should be geared towards holding these parents responsible. Obama and the DOJ are race baiters that should be ashamed of themselves. End of story.

    That's not what I'm saying. When a dispute happens the debate won't devolve into a race question.

    It will if democrats can make it about race or police or anything like that. All involved in the Baltimore incident were Black and yet that loser Mayor went after the officers. It is to bring down civil society.
