Ferguson Police, Court Bias Issues Called Nationwide Problem


The racial unfairness in Ferguson, Mo.’s court system that the Justice Department highlighted last week is not limited to it, to St. Louis County or even to Missouri, says the New York Times. “Ferguson is one dot in the state, and there are many municipalities in the region engaged in the same practices a mile away,” said Vanita Gupta, the Justice Department's top civil rights prosecutor. “It would be a mistake for any of those neighboring jurisdictions to fold up their hands. They should absolutely take note of this report.”
