SORT BY Relevancy
The Justice Department will open a civil rights investigation into policing practices in Ferguson, Mo., Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday. The move marks the Obama Administration’s most forceful step to address racial strife in the mostly African-American St. Louis suburb, where a police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teen on Aug. 9.
Ferguson activists and community leaders say they are welcoming the investigation, saying the practice of racial profiling by police was widespread in the community long before department veteran Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown. The incident sparked days of protests and a heavy police crackdown.
But should DOJ have stepped in? We discuss it..

Quick Take Ohio: A Toolkit for Correctional Facilities to Help Reduce the Use of Solitary Confinement
In March 2015, the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators (CJCA) published a Toolkit to Reduce the Use of Isolation. This Toolkit is intended to guide leadership of youth correctional facilities in changing cultures that rely on solitary confinement as a behavior management tool. The Toolkit is another recent acknowledgment that the regular use of seclusion is not good for youth and must end. Ned Loughran, CJCA's Executive Director, joins this Quick Take Ohio to discuss the Toolkit, its components, and some promising practices.
What is the "I am FergusonProject" (#!AMFERGUSON)?
It is a 4 Justice Radio viral campaign to expose the failure of federal civil rights agencies under the Obama Administration, to properly investigate civil rights complaints filed by black and other non-white people--particulary when the complaints involve prominent businesses, state and city officials, law enforcement and judges.
Your involvement will help us show that employees within US federal civil rights agencies ROUTINELY INTERFERE with the civil rights complaint process and specifically CAUSE these complaints to be improperly DISMISSED and completely IGNORED.
