The US Justice Department will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, last summer.

The Justice Department is about to close the investigation into the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown by former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

Federal prosecutors had begun work on a legal memo recommending no civil rights charges against Wilson after an FBI investigation found no evidence to support charges against him, the newspaper said, quoting law enforcement officials.

The FBI is still conducting a probe into the Ferguson police force for civil rights violations.

The police killing of Brown and Eric Garner in New York City led to months of sometimes violent protests in cities across the US.

Mass rallies were held across the United States on Monday during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday to honor the civil rights icon and protest against the mistreatment of minorities by police.

A recent poll by the Reuters and IPSOS polling organization has found a significant distrust of police in the United States, where many Americans believe police target minorities unfairly and often lie for their own interests.

One Response to PressTV: US to clear white police officer over Michael Brown’s death

    It is a pity that Michael Brown was the young punk that he was…. because that track record was instrumental in de-railing the effort to bring some kind of visible justice instead of the usual “Just-Us” that is meted out by the PO-lice and the courts in the US.

    He WAS executed… from all I’ve seen, including videos that were surreptitiously taken at the scene, he DID have his hands over his head… he WAS saying “O.K. O.K. I give up”….. and he WAS blasted multiple times….. all of which destroys any position of “right” for the hot shot cop that killed him. The cop had already been fired from another police department for incidents handled badly because of his hot head… (fact).

    Was Michael a “nice guy”? Probably not… but that is not the crux of the killing. The UNNECESSARY killing is the core problem… and the system upholds unnecessary killings of the man on the street, even when he IS a nice guy.

    And so it goes…. time to move to Central America.
