City of Ferguson, Missouri reacts to federal lawsuit
Ferguson, Missouri Mayor James Knowles III leaves a press conference after responding to a federal lawsuit, one day after the city council voted to revise an agreement aimed at improving the way police and courts treat poor people and minorities in the St. Louis suburb, on February 10, 2016. Ferguson has been under Justice Department scrutiny since 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black and unarmed, was fatally shot by white officer Darren Wilson 18 months ago. Justice The Department report was critical of police and a profit-driven municipal court system. Following months of negotiations, an agreement between the federal agency and Ferguson was announced in January. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Ferguson's decision to reject the agreement left the department no choice except to sue. Photo by Bill Greenblatt/UPI
