Statement from American Citizens for Justice on Ferguson Decision

Statement from American Citizens for Justice President Emma Chen:
American Citizens for Justice is saddened by the St. Louis Grand Jury's decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. It reminds us of how much work still needs to be done to achieve racial justice in this country. When there is no accountability for excessive force and police brutality, we guarantee there will be another tragedy. As Michael Brown's family stated last night, "We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen." We urge that the federal investigation into this incident proceeds diligently. As with the Vincent Chin case, this case is an example where the process for justice has not achieved justice for the community. We are left with an empty feeling inside and the need for a resolution.
