Ferguson City Manager Removed After Justice Department Report

Tuesday, 10 Mar 2015 08:48 PM

John Shaw is out as the Ferguson city manager following a scathing Justice Department report that already has led to a Missouri appeals court judge being tapped to overhaul the local court system.

The City Council in the St. Louis suburb, beleaguered by unrest since a white police officer fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown last summer, announced a resolution Tuesday removing Shaw following the report last week that accused the Ferguson Police Department and municipal court system of racial bias.

The Justice Department investigation already has resulted in a shakeup: Racist emails included in the report led to the firing of the city clerk and resignation of two police officers last week.

And on Monday, Municipal Judge Ronald J. Brockmeyer resigned and was immediately replaced with a state appellate judge.
