The Justice Department is suing Michael Brown's hometown after the city refused to accept a deal that would have reformed its mostly white police department.

The agreement would force the city to eliminate certain laws and stop policing for profit.
Civil rights lawyers say the feds need to go after local officials who violate constitutional rights and "trample the law with impunity."
