WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department plans to open a wide-ranging investigation into the practices of the Ferguson Police Department following the shooting last month of an unarmed black 18-year-old by a white police officer in the St. Louis suburb, a person briefed on the matter said Wednesday night.

The person said the investigation could be announced as early as Thursday afternoon. Missouri officials were notified Wednesday of the investigation.

The investigation will look at the overall practices of the police department, including patterns of stops, arrests and use-of-force, as well as the training the officers receive, the person said.

The inquiry is separate from an ongoing civil rights investigation the Justice Department is conducting into the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. A local grand jury is also investigating the shooting, which set off nearly two weeks of unrest in Ferguson and became a flashpoint in the national discussion of police treatment of minorities across the country. Attorney General Eric Holder two weeks ago visited the St. Louis suburb, where he sought to reassure residents about the Justice Department investigation and shared personal experiences of having himself been mistreated by the police.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation, first reported by The Washington Post, had not yet been announced.

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson did not immediately return a call seeking comment about the Justice Department investigation.

Police have said the shooting followed a scuffle that broke out after Wilson told Brown and a friend to move out of the street and onto a sidewalk. Police say Wilson was pushed into his squad car and physically assaulted. Some witnesses have reported seeing Brown's arms up in the air before the shooting in an act of surrender. An autopsy paid for by Brown's family concluded that he was shot six times, twice in the head.

The Justice Department's civil rights division routinely investigates individual police departments when there are allegations of systemic abuse or other problems. The department says it's opened more than twice as many investigations into police department in the past five years as were opened in the previous five years. Among those that have recently come under investigation are the Albuquerque, New Mexico, department, which was the subject of a harshly critical report in April that faulted the police for a pattern of excessive force and called an overhaul of its internal affairs unit.

Normally, the federal investigation seeks to encourage significant changes to policies and practices. The investigations sometimes end in an agreement known as a consent decree, in which the police department agrees to make changes.

if Shaun King is right, then thanks and watch yourself and keep the truth coming

I have no idea what you mean by that Phaedra

I'm countering a lot of republican postering irl so my side eye is already peeled, I've already conceded, perhaps unnecessarily

but I have no idea who Shaun King is, there's a lot going on, I just came in here and I'm catching up

I'm not on here like that anymore, so no time for the back and forth, save us both time and just avert your gaze

But black pride isn't racist?

exposing-racists answered:

nah because we don’t have a history of chanting and promoting “black pride” while lynching your people

Or burning them, destroying their businesses, schools and churches, after years of having your people be seen as less than human.
