BBC News with Jerry Smit.
The police chief of the US city of Ferguson is to resign. Thomas Jackson has been criticized by many activists following the shooting of an unarmed black teenager by one of his officers in August. Kim Ghattas reports from Washington.
"Police Chief Thomas Jackson was one of the two officials whose behavior was highlighted IN a scaling report by the department of justice last week. The report was prompted by the fatal shooting of 18-year old Michael Brown by a white policeman last summer. It alleged racial bias in the city police department and court system and outlined ways in which the police and courts functioned as a money-making enterprise, mostly targeting the city’s African American population. Mr. Jackson has so far resisted calls to step down over his handling of the shooting of the unarmed black teenager and weeks of protests that followed."
