Ferguson Councilman Concerned Federal Government’s Plan Could Bankrupt Town

Ferguson, MO  (KTRS)  A Ferguson city councilman says the federal government’s plan to reform policing and municipal courts could bankrupt north county town.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Councilman Brian Fletcher wouldn’t discuss what the board finds unacceptable about the U.S. Department of Justice’s proposal.  However, he says the council will request more time to find an alternative that won’t “financially ruin the city.”

Sunday marks one year since 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by then Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson, who later was cleared by a county grand jury and the Justice Department.

A Justice Department probe of Ferguson’s justice system later found a profit-driven court system and widespread racial bias by police.
