The US Justice Department is going to release a report on Wednesday detailing about the alleged racial biasness adopted by the police department in Ferguson, Missouri against black citizens, leading to the routine violation of the constitutional rights.
The report comes following a six-month of rigorous investigation which was launched after the fatal shooting incident involving an unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by a white police officer during a street confrontation in 2014.
Police officer Darren Wilson, who gunned down Brown last November, was cleared from indictment by a state grand jury. The decision had triggered series of protests across the United States, mainly in the majority-black community near St. Louis.
The investigators of the Justice Department looked into over 35,000 pages of police records, hundreds of interviews and other documents and concluded some glaring findings about the racial bias existing among Ferguson police.
The investigating team found that 93 percent of all arrests made in Ferguson constitute African Americans. They also make up 85 percent of all routine traffic stops as well as 90 percent of all issued traffic citations.
According to the probe team, the report will also talk about Ferguson officials who routinely circulated racist jokes on their official e-mail accounts.
The Justice Department is also likely to announce on Wednesday about an FBI probe that found no evidence that Wilson willfully intended to violate the civil rights of the victim when he shot him.
