Cleveland Reaches Deal With DOJ on Policing

The city of Cleveland has reached a settlement with the U.S. Justice Department over a pattern of excessive force and civil rights violations by the police department. That's according to a senior federal law enforcement official, who said the agreement could be announced as soon as Tuesday. The official was not authorized to speak publicly of the settlement ahead of the official announcement. News of the settlement comes days after a white police officer was acquitted of manslaughter. In 2012, the officer fired the final 15 rounds of a 137-shot police barrage through the windshield of a car carrying two black, unarmed suspects.
