FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) – Protesters were outside police headquarters in Ferguson to say “I told you so!” Wednesday night after the U.S. Department of Justice alleged patterns of discrimination in the department.

Protesters say they wanted to send a message – They’ll be watching.
“To do nothing … after this report would be just, it would be unconscionable. This kind of policing, I think it’s the rule rather than the exception.”
Protester Jerroll Sanders says the firing of one officer because of a racist email isn’t enough – many say they’d like the entire department disbanded.
They say they took to the street because they don’t trust the city to act on its own.
Many also want the feds to investigate other St. Louis County municipalities.
There were four arrests of people who, police say, refused to move out of the street.
