President Obama to hold meetings on Ferguson

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will discuss the situation in Ferguson on Monday with his Cabinet, civil rights leaders, law enforcement officials and others.

Protests have continued in Ferguson but have been more muted than the violence sparked last week by a grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer in the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The White House says Obama’s Cabinet meeting will focus on his administration’s review of federal programs that provide military-style equipment to law enforcement agencies.

The White House says the president also will meet with young civil rights leaders to discuss the challenges posed by “mistrust between law enforcement and communities of color.” He’ll then meet with government and law enforcement officials, as well as other community leaders, to discuss how to strengthen neighborhoods.
