Police: From Warriors to Guardians

"Some of those protestors were right," said Attorney General Eric Holder as he released the Justice Department's report on the police department in Ferguson, Missouri. The report should be read by anyone who believes in racial justice and reconciliation, because it shows us what we are still up against in 2015, 50 years after the Selma march. This is not a post-racial America, especially in regard to our policing and criminal justice systems. Ferguson has become a teaching parable for the nation. After a detailed and thorough investigation over many months, the devastating report revealed a police force and court system in Ferguson that proves true much of what young protestors and local residents have been saying since the shooting of Michael Brown last August.
