Police chief of Ferguson, Missouri, the town where Michael Brown was shot by Officer Darren Wilson, expected to step down, officials say.


This is breaking news and there is no link yet.

I agree he should step down, I also think the prosecutor should remove himself from the case, the governor should step down and the entire city council including the mayor should step down.

ok here is a link:



FERGUSON, MO – The police chief in Ferguson, Missouri, is expected to step down as part of the effort by city officials to reform the Police Department, according to government officials familiar with the discussions ongoing between local, state and federal officials.

Under the proposed plan, after Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson leaves, city leadership would ask the St. Louis County police chief to take over management of Ferguson’s police force.

The announcement could come as soon as next week. It would be one step in what local officials hope will help reduce tensions in the city as the public awaits a decision on whether the St. Louis County grand jury will bring charges against Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

Having him removed from his job is fine and dandy, but there is something to be concerned about.
Just ask the university of michigan football program. They fired a coach and replaced him with a coach that has done worse than the guy they fired. They better find a good replacement or things could get worse.

Ferguson police chief expected to step down


Search says Colonel Jon Belmar is the St. Louis County police chief. Wonder what is known about him, concerns if any. Guess we'll just have to see even shortly. Meanwhile police In Ferguson are preparing for the Grand Jury Decision by stocking up on riot gear-handcuffs tear gas, and "less lethal" bullets". See more According to this source they believe many protestors will be ready for "war" if Officer Wilson is not indicted.

Woohoo this is getting juicy CNN and Fox news in in St Louis are saying he will step down and other news sites are saying he has denied saying he would step down, par for the course for this guy IMO

From ksdk:


FERGUSON, Mo. - Following months of protests and unrest over the shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson will step down, CNN reported.

Jackson's resignation is expected as soon as next week. In his stead, CNN reports the St. Louis County Police Department would assume control.

But then they add:


Calls to Chief Jackson's phone for comment went unanswered Tuesday night and his voicemail was full.

The chief spoke with NewsChannel 5's Casey Nolen in the hour before the CNN report aired, saying he had no intention of resigning.

Anne Allred spoke with sources at the Ferguson Police Department, who were unaware of the report.

Mike Bush contacted St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar, who said CNN's report was news to him.

The Ferguson Police Department tweeted Tuesday evening that Chief Jackson had not been fired or asked to step down.

Ferguson police chief denies CNN report that he'll step down

Still not seeing a denial

CNN is saying he will step down next week according to a plan to reform the Ferguson police department in a effort to keep the peace....

Thats what news sources are saying and since news sources have made these comment/stories Chief Jackson has not publicly denied he is stepping down.

Reminds me of all the other lies reported about this case:

Hundreds chant kill the police ...LIE!
Blowout orbital fracture...LIE!
Micheal Brown second degree murder...LIE


So according to kmov st louis he isn't resigning:


(KMOV.com) – Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told News 4 he is not resigning despite reports to the contrary.

It had been reported that Jackson planned to step down. However, shortly after the report came out, Jackson said the report was not correct.

“I have not been told I must resign nor have I been fired. If I do resign in the future it will be my choice. However, it is not imminent,” Jackson told News 4’s Matt Sczesny. 6

kmov

Can't remember a story so full of lies from the media, so many twists and turns. This news report was posted 20 minutes ago wow!

FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – Big news out of Ferguson Tuesday night, regarding the future of the police department, its chief, and officer Darren Wilson. CNN reports Chief Tom Jackson is expected to step down, something Jackson says is not true.

A source familiar with these discussions, says mayors, state lawmakers and members of congress are working out the details of a massive Ferguson reform package to quell the on-going unrest, and a feared escalation in the coming weeks.

The source says the possible changes also include: Ferguson Police Chief, Tom Jackson, stepping down; along with the termination of Officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed unarmed, 18 year old Mike Brown, August 9th. Plus, St. Louis county police assuming operation of the Ferguson police department. Leaders in Ferguson and St. Louis County say they have no knowledge of any proposed reforms.

At this point its hard to believe anything reported in the press about Ferguson but this is what there source is reporting...

i heard that they would tell the police department the results of the grand jury 24hrs before they release it publicly so they have time to prepare

considering he probably is in the know ...maybe they already told him and he doesn't want to deal with it so he resigns

Hasn't it always been the policy of our government to not negotiate with terrorists?

If the source is true, its strange that the ptb would skip the locally elected and make plans for the area and not include them.

hmmmm

So you are on the governments side in labeling it's own citizens as terrorist?
Good to know.

I don't see much of a difference between blowing up a city and burning one down.

Fire them all. People are sick of their corruption, harassment, bullying and the fact that they mock and disobey the law they force citizens to follow.

We the people are tired. Tired of the entire rotten structure. From the rookie compensating with his badge to the overfed and overpaid fixtures behind desks they call the politicians. This current system is a disgrace.
