Justice Department finds racial bias in Ferguson police practices

A female protester raises her hands while blocking police cars in FergusonBy Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department has concluded that the Ferguson, Missouri, police department routinely engages in racially biased practices, a law enforcement official familiar with the department's findings said on Tuesday. The investigation into the police department began in August after the shooting of unarmed African-American teen Michael Brown by a white police officer in Ferguson sparked national protests. Analysis of more than 35,000 pages of police records found racist comments from officers as well as statistics that showed African-Americans make up 93 percent of arrests while accounting for only 67 percent of the population in Ferguson, the official said.

Alabama high court orders halt to same-sex marriage licenses
(Reuters) - The Alabama Supreme Court ordered probate judges in the state on Tuesday to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in a ruling in apparent defiance of the U.S. Supreme Court. The 7-1 ruling comes about three weeks after U.S. District Judge Callie Granade overturned the socially conservative state's ban on gay marriage in a decision that the U.S. Supreme Court declined to put on hold. "As it has done for approximately two centuries, Alabama law allows for 'marriage' between only one man and one woman," Tuesday's state supreme court ruling said.
