Federal Charges Unlikely in Ferguson Case
They didn’t find the evidence convincing. Federal investigators looking into the police-shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown are not recommending that the shooter, Darren Wilson, face civil rights charges. Wilson, who maintains he was attacked by Brown, has since resigned from the force. The police-brutality protesters who filled Ferguson’s streets for months after the shooting are sure to be incensed. But it’s Attorney General Eric Holder, whose decision is expected by spring, who gets the final say on whether charges will be filed.
