US attorney general to issue new guidance on racial profiling

US attorney general Eric Holder said on Monday he would soon release new guidelines to limit racial profiling by federal law enforcement, a move long awaited by civil rights advocates. Holder announced his plan at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached. Holder’s comments came in the wake of unrest in Ferguson after a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer in the killing of unarmed black teen.  Holder said he would announce the guidelines “in the coming days” as part of President Obama’s response to the tension between law enforcement and minority communities.
