Justice Department Finds Pattern of Police Bias and Excessive Force in Ferguson

Justice Department Finds Pattern of Police Bias and Excessive Force in Ferguson

Afro, Latinos, Asians, East and West factions  it's time to unite with Actions. Without a united front this Terrorism shall continue unabated. Afro today, others tomorrow. As Malcolm stated, an open hand is not a powerful as a closed fist. Both hand and fist are inexplicably linked to the body, united as one serving a dual purpose. The fist stands in defense, while the mind and hand execute a legal offensive for lasting peace and freedom.

Complaints of Employment Discrimination involving a Group
or Class of Individuals:
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”) prohibits discrimination, including harassment and retaliation, based on race, sex, color, religion, and national origin.

Under Title VII, the Attorney General has authority to bring suit against a state or local government employer where there is reason to believe that a "pattern or practice" of discrimination exists. Generally, these are factually and legally complex cases that seek to alter an employment practice, such as recruitment, hiring, assignment and promotions, which have the purpose or effect of denying employment or promotional opportunities to a class of individuals.

If you have reason to believe that a state or local government employer has unlawfully denied an employment opportunity or otherwise discriminated against a class of individuals by creating a "pattern or practice" of discrimination in violation of Title VII, you should contact the Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ may be contacted by calling (202) 514-3831 or (202) 514-6780 (TTY).

 Special Litigation
To file a complaint, write the Special Litigation Section (SPL) explaining the situation about which you are complaining, with as much detail as possible. If you are aware of similar incidents involving others, please include that information as well. SPL does not have legal authority to represent individuals. In most of SPL’s work, a single incident of mistreatment will not be sufficient to start an investigation. The Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) and the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) are exceptions to this general rule, and single incidents may be sufficient to start an investigation. Please include information on how to contact you if we need further information (such as an address, telephone number and e-mail address). Also, do not include original documents as we cannot guarantee their safe return. You can send information to:
Special Litigation Section
U.S. Department of Justice
Civil Rights Division
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Special Litigation Section
Washington, D.C. 20530
