Justice system finds little trust among African-Americans

Protesters rally outside the office of St Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch on August 20, 2014Outrage over the fatal shooting of an African-American teenager is giving way to anger that the white police officer who pulled the trigger might never face justice. Several dozen protesters gathered Wednesday outside the St Louis County prosecutor’s office, calling for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson to stand trial for the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Potentially, it could invite Wilson to appear, county prosecutor Robert McCulloch told St Louis news media. Nearby, US Attorney General Eric Holder, on a day trip from Washington, mingled with Ferguson community leaders and residents, as a federal Justice Department civil rights investigation into Brown’s death rolls on.
