Episode 10 (Criminal Justice): What really happened in Ferguson?

Professor Ben discusses a story that was part of the Ferguson incidents that was almost buried by the media because Ferguson news coverage, or written articles, focused on Michael Brown. The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a comprehensive investigation into the practices of the Ferguson police department and municipal courts finding widespread, intentional systematic discrimination against African-Americans. This story is the underlying foundation of the Ferguson protests against the police department…it was not just the shooting of Michael Brown that lit the fire between citizens and the police department.
