Embattled Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson told CNN on Thursday that he does not plan on stepping down as previously reported by the same network.
“I’m going to stay and see this through,” he said.
Jackson is, of course, referring to the officer-involved shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, which sparked unrelenting unrest in Ferguson and the surrounding areas. A grand jury is expected to reveal its decision on whether to indict officer Darren Wilson in the case sometime in November.
"I report to the city manager, period,” Jackson added. “And as long as he and the council support me, then I intend to stay. I certainly have the support of the police department and the community. I have a lot of support in the community. I think this is my job to complete, and I'm going to do it.”
