In Ferguson, Scathing US Report Brings Pressure For Change

WASHINGTON (AP) - A new Justice Department report says blacks in Ferguson, Missouri, are disproportionately subject to excessive police force, baseless traffic stops and citations for infractions as petty as walking down the middle of street.

Ferguson officials expect the report to be released Wednesday.

The Ferguson Police Department commanded national attention after one of its officers shot and killed an unarmed black man, 18-year-old Michael Brown, last summer.
