The DOJ didn't ask the WaPo not to do a story on Officer Wilson?

Heck, no. In fact, the paper sent nine reporters to dig into the officer who shot Michael Brown's past:

The family later moved to the suburban Missouri town of St. Peters, where Wilson's mother again got divorced ( translation: broken family = unstable individual) and married a man named Dan Durso, records indicate.

Wilson attended St. Charles West High School, in a predominantly white, middle-class community(translation: he doesn't know how to deal with black people) west of the Missouri River. He played junior varsity hockey for the West Warriors but wasn't a standout (translation: not being a standout as a teen made him overzealous as a cop).

There were problems at home (see above re: divorce). In 2001, when Wilson was a freshman in high school, his mother pleaded guilty to forgery and stealing (translation: this somehow rubbed off on Darren. Somehow.) She was sentenced to five years in prison, although records suggest the court agreed to let her serve her sentence on probation (translation: did Wilson somehow have police "connections" even then) .

Remember what a no-no it was to release that surveillance video showing Brown robbing that convenience store?

And, as Ace of Spades notes, in the WaPo article "at no point is any mention made of Michael Brown's family nor how it may have lead to his criminal behavior."

Unless you're a real believer in the mainstream media, this should surprise you not at all.
