Ferguson-DOJ civil rights deal falls through
Just when it looked like there would be an out-of-court settlement between the city of Ferguson and the Department of Justice over civil rights violations, the deal fell through when Ferguson reneged. The city feared they couldn't pay for the reforms. Now they will have huge legal expenses and will probably lose the suit and have to pay for the reforms anyway. In the long run it will probably cost them more. Of course, they can always file for bankruptcy.
