James Knowles says “mutual agreement” reached with Tom Jackson
CBS News has confirmed that Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson will resign.
Ferguson city leaders will meet with DOJ officials in about two weeks and provide a plan for ways to improve the police department following a scathing report released this week, Mayor James Knowles said Friday.
St. Louis County officials say they are ready to step up and do what is needed as a result of the DOJ’s findings on the Ferguson police and court system.
Ferguson City Attorney Stephanie Karr and Mayor James Knowles III said they have not been contacted by the Department of Justice about any findings, nor given a timeline for completion of the investigations.
A new video shows the stepfather of Michael Brown warning he was going to start a riot following a grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
“I was so angry and full of raw emotions, as so many others were, and granted, I screamed out words that I shouldn’t have screamed in the heat of the moment,” he said in a statement.
Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson indicated that they are “pursuing” an investigation into whether comments made by Michael Brown’s stepfather the night Ferguson officer Darren Wilson was not indicted by a grand jury incited a riot.
“I think it’s important we start with a clean slate,” she says.
