U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is suggested the police authorities in Ferguson, Missouri should diversify in order to sooth racial tensions with the community.
“Over time, … [the police] should consider the role that increased diversity in law enforcement can play in helping to build trust within communities,” Holder said in a statement released Thursday afternoon.
The relatively small city of Ferguson has become the epicenter of protests against police violence in America since local officers shot and killed an unarmed African-American teen last Saturday. According to ABC News, the Ferguson police department has three black officers and 47 white officers.
Holder’s statement, which arrived not long after President Barack Obama spoke on the topic, also said the Department of Justice was investigating the incident.
