Holder 'prepared' to disband Ferguson police

A Ferguson police officer stands on watch as protestors demonstrate outside the Ferguson Police Department in Ferguson, Missouri on March 4, 2015Attorney General Eric Holder warned Friday that he was prepared to dismantle the Ferguson police department after an official report unearthed damning evidence that officers in the St. Louis suburb targeted African Americans. The Justice Department also uncovered a cache of racist emails and proof of multiple rights violations in the Missouri town where a white policeman shot dead an unarmed black teenager on August 9, 2014, sparking civil unrest and a national outcry. Holder said he was “shocked” by the official findings into practices in Ferguson, a majority black town with a mostly white police force, and had a warning for police departments across the United States. “I hope they’re listening to these comments and understand the intensity with which the feelings are felt at the federal government level to ensure that we use all the tools that we can to make sure that what happened in Ferguson is uncovered and simply does not happen in any other part of the country,” he said.
