The findings of a months-long investigation by the Justice Department into the Ferguson Police Department were released Wednesday.

Early versions of the report found that African Americans in Ferguson are disproportionately subject to excessive police force, and revealed a troubling lack of trust between the community and police. 

Rev. Starskey Wilson is co-chair of the Ferguson Commission, a group of community leaders, set up after the shooting death of Michael Brown. He joins the show to talk about the report.
