Ferguson police chief: “I think I can see this through”
Police Chief Thomas Jackson – a central figure in the protests that flared in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting of an unarmed black teen – says he has no plans to step down despite mounting calls that he must go.
He told CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” on Thursday that he has been working with community leaders and others to create a dialogue in the community.
“I think I can see this through and come out on the other side with the community, the region and even the country a whole lot better,” he said.
Jackson’s statements come as the grand jury is expected any day to deliver a decision on whether to indict a white police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
