Quote:ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, who became one of the city's most well-known figures after a police officer killed teenager Michael Brown in August 2014, plans to resign in the wake of a blistering Justice Department report on the revenue-driven policing and court practices Jackson oversaw in the St. Louis suburb.

Jackson is the sixth and most high-profile Ferguson city employee to resign after the release 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.

In a resignation letter published by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jackson said he was stepping down with "profound sadness" and that he hoped to "continue to assist the city in anyway I can in my capacity as a private citizen."

Hard to say.

I'm sure he's being scrutinized by the Feds, State, local and gawd knows what other "officials."
Not a good environment to attempt to responsibly carry out any job. He had nothing to do with it, but him leaving speaks volumes.
