'US justice system failing young blacks'

  • Michael Brown’s family has said that the American justice system has systematically failed young blacks as a night of furious rioting broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, following a grand jury’s decision not to indict the officer who killed the 18-year-old.

    The unarmed black teenager was shot dead in August by white police officer Darren Wilson, who will not be charged in the case.

    The lawyers for Brown’s parents stated that the “process is broken.”

    Around 60 people have been arrested and 14 injured and extensive damage to property reported in the St Louis area, according to media reports.
