    They're certainly cleaning house in MO. Running like cockroaches when the kitchen light turns on, apparently.

    Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, one of the city's most public faces in the aftermath of teenager Michael Brown’s killing in August, plans to resign from office in the wake of a blistering Justice Department report on the revenue-driven policing and court practices Jackson oversaw in the St. Louis suburb, multiple media outlets reported Wednesday.

    Jackson is the sixth and most high-profile Ferguson city employee to resign after the publication of the Justice Department report, which critically examined the practices of the police department and municipal court system. Two police officers and a court clerk stepped down because the report revealed they had sent racist emails, while the municipal judge and City Manager John Shaw resigned over their roles in implementing police practices that prioritized generating revenue over public safety concerns.

    I saw this on Yahoo today. I have personal knowledge that Ferguson isn't the only place that does this kinda shit. Just about every single city that I've been to in Arkansas does it as well. I should rat them out to the Justice Dept.

    You would be hard pressed to find a police department in the country which doesn't prioritize generating revenue over public safety.

    Anderson Cooper, the admitted homosexual, compared this man to a cockroach on national TV. I am quite sure if he inferred any black as cockroach his smelly, hairy man ass loving self would be fighting for his own job.

    I hope all that are as systematic as this (with judges and prosecutors cut in on it) get revamped.

    If they wanted to generate revenue, they should have just did what the suburbs around me do...
















    They do it to save the children!

    Will they be happy when they get what they want, no Ferguson PD? Or a primarily Black Ferguson PD? I have a hunch that these residents will be remembering fondly the days of being ticketed and fined too heavily when crime and corruption sky rocket.

    You think the politicians preparing that study are any different?

    They must have some really damning evidence against this guy to cause him to leave like this. It's a shame he will never be held accountable for his racist crimes and actions......

    It's a good thing this upstanding person will "stay around and help out as an ordinary citizen", as he claimed in the article. Hahahahaha..... What a line of bullshit.

    Hopefully, the citizens of Ferguson will give him a good farewell present or two before he flees town......
