FERGUSON, MO -- The Department of Justice is preparing to sue the Ferguson, Missouri Police Department unless some major changes are made. It all goes back to allegations of racial discrimination after the shooting death of Michael Brown last year.

Attorney General Eric Holder says he will make the results of a DOJ investigation public soon. The findings are expected to outline a pattern of discriminatory tactics used by Ferguson Police—things like targeting minorities for minor traffic violations and jailing those who could not pay fines.

If Ferguson refuses to make changes, then the feds will reportedly step in and it all could go to court.
