Ferguson police chief quits after racism report

0

WASHINGTON D.C.: The embattled police chief in Ferguson, Missouri resigned on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila), a week after a scathing US Justice Department report into the fatal shooting of the unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by one of his officers. Thomas Jackson is the latest prominent official in the St. Louis suburb to stand down, seven months after Brown was shot and killed by white police officer Darren Wilson, igniting angry protests and a national debate about race and law enforcement.
