Results of a DOJ investigation into the death of Brown is expected to reveal a pattern of discrimination by Ferguson police. The potential lawsuit against the department could move forward unless the Ferguson PD changes the racially discriminatory tactics on its own. The feds could request court supervision over the department’s involvement with the local minority community.

“I have received nothing new,” Ferguson Chief Thomas Jackson told CNN. “Everything they suggested in the past has been reasonable and we have tried to comply.”
