Last week we met with representatives from the Department of Justice. Without making a firm commitment, the DOJ reps suggested that the DOJ might be open to a side letter which clarified some of the timing and economic points in the Consent Decree. Our City Council is also open to the idea of a letter of clarification.
WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THE SIDE LETTER COVERS THE FINANCIAL POINTS RAISED BY OUR CITY MANAGER.
HERE is a link to a proposed side letter that we feel addresses these concerns.
PLEASE LET YOUR COUNCIL MEMBER KNOW THAT THEY MUST STAND FIRM AND NOT PASS THE CONSENT DECREE WITHOUT A SIDE LETTER THAT ADDRESSES THESE ISSUES.
Help Ferguson Get the Truth Out
Beginning with Eric Holder announcing the Department of Justice’s “searing” report, the DOJ has selectively collected and presented information to paint Ferguson as racist and abusive. Ferguson Truth was formed to push for transparency and truth from the Department of Justice, to counteract this distorted narrative that the DOJ created.
