Ferguson Police Chief, Thomas Jackson, Expected to Step Down Amid Criticism

FERGUSON, Mo. — The embattled police chief of Ferguson, the focus of bitter complaints of racial discrimination within his department that turned into national protests after one of his white officers fatally shot an unarmed black teenager last August, will resign his post, according to a city official who spoke Wednesday on a condition on anonymity.
The official, who was not authorized to speak for the city, said the announcement would be made later Wednesday afternoon, but he did not say when the resignation would take effect.
