Police actions inflamed Ferguson tensions: official report

Police attempt to control demonstrators protesting the killing of teenager Michael Brown on August 18, 2014 in Ferguson, MissouriThe use of armored vehicles and dogs in efforts to restore order in Ferguson following the police shooting of a black teenager in the St. Louis suburb only fueled tensions, the US Justice Department said Thursday. In a damning report nearly 200 pages long, the DOJ condemned city, county and state police for inconsistent, inappropriate and overly reactive strategies in dealing with the protests that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in August last year. Brown’s killing made Ferguson the epicenter of an outcry against perceived police violence towards African Americans that continues more than a year later.
