William Yeomans talked about the Justice Department’s findings of its two civil rights investigations following a fatal shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri. The report concluded that the shooting of Michael Brown did not warrant federal civil rights charges against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, but exposed a pattern of racial bias within the Ferguson Police Department. Video clips were shown of President Obama speaking the previous day in South Carolina and Attorney General Holder speaking March 4, 2015. The program concluded with a video clip of President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing Co-Chair Laurie Robinson being interviewed the previous day for “Newsmakers.” close
