FBI Completes Civil Rights Investigation For Ferguson Shooting
Police say the FBI has completed its civil rights investigation in the shooting death of Michael Brown, by former Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson.
Wilson shot and killed the teen during an altercation, last August.
A Missouri grand jury exonerated Wilson and did not indict him on criminal charges.
After completing an investigation, the FBI says it found no evidence to show Wilson intentionally violated Brown’s civil rights.
An investigation by the Justice Department on the practices of the Ferguson Police Department continues.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon spoke of the need for reform in his State of the State address.
“We need to update the state’s statute governing deadly force to be consistent with constitutional requirements and U.S. Supreme Court precedent.”
Prosecutors are still trying to determine if the largely white Ferguson police force has demonstrated a history of discrimination and racial profiling.
