Holder says would break up Ferguson police if 'necessary'

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 03/07/2015 - 07:07
By Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday the Justice Department would use its full authority to demand police reforms in Ferguson, Missouri, including possibly going so far as dismantling the department accused of racial bias. Asked if that included dismantling the Ferguson Police Department, Holder said, "If that's what's necessary, we're prepared to do that." Civil rights lawyers have previously said the county could absorb the functions of the Ferguson Police Department. The Justice Department issued a report this week that found that police in Ferguson overwhelmingly arrested and issued traffic citations to black residents, creating a "toxic" environment with its policing practices. Holder also said President Barack Obama's task force on policing will issue guidelines to address jailing citizens who owe money to the city, a practice used in Ferguson.
