More than a month after one of his officers shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown, Ferguson, Mo. Police Chief Thomas Jackson is apologizing to Brown’s family…in a video message.

The video, running 2 minutes and 27 seconds, was released via The Devin James Group, the public relations firm hired to fix Ferguson’s image following the shooting and subsequent protests.

Jackson also said he regretted that Brown’s body was left in the street for a long time following the shooting.

“The time that it took involved very important work on the part of investigators, who were trying to collect important evidence and gain a true picture of what happened that day. But it was just too long, and I am truly sorry for that,” he said.

Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson fatally shot 18-year-old Brown on Aug. 9. Ferguson police said it was an act of self-defense, but witnesses accounts have contradicted that claim. The U.S. Department of Justice is currently investigating the incident.

  1. Honestly on said:

    The cave n!@@er thomas jackson is so full of sh!t the whites of his eyes are brown. These neanderthal apes should all take a leap into the abyss, this isn’t an apology. This mayonnaise monkey is wiping salt in the wound. These monsters, freaks and savages should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

  2. Why would the Black people of Ferguson accept the police chief’s contrived, insincere apology?. He realizes that the death of Michael Brown has sparked some political and civic asperations for the Black citizens of Ferguson. Being 67% of the town’s population, they can easliy vote out all of the insensitive and racist town officals. Chief Jackson sees the handwriting on the wall. And it reads
    “Dismissed!” I find it especially stupid that these Black residents allowed a minority of whites to
    rule them. Now they see how important voting is.

  3. This apology has come forth because of an election coming up, that’s why. This police chief has been letting his police officers run amuk for so long; now that it all has been exposed, he is pretending to be aplolgetic to get votes!

    Reverend Al Sharpton, I’m using your quote once again from Politics Nation:

    “Nice Try, But We Gotcha!

  4. It just goes to show you, you cannot outrun your conscience. It’s amazing evildoers sleep at night. That’s (if they do).

    I will put God in my comments from time to time, because he is the “beginning” and the “end” with everything including (right and wrong/justice).
