Ferguson Police Chief Resigns

The chief of police of Ferguson, MO has resigned, only days after the release of a US Department of Justice report documenting racial bias in that town, following the murder last August of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.

Four other members of the Ferguson police department have already resigned, and a fifth has been fired, in the wake of revelations about police profiling, and discriminatory arrests, fines and stops, along with racist emails and a pervasive atmosphere of racial bias.
