Policing Ferguson-Policing America by Tom Jackson

Tom’s new book, Policing Ferguson-Policing America will be out on August 1st.  Don’t let this one pass you by.  It’s written by the former Chief of the Ferguson Police Department…and he should know.  Tom stood his ground after the shooting of mbj by Officer Darren Wilson.  Tenuous ground indeed.Tom jackson

After the incident on Aug 9, 2014 it seemed like everyone and everything turned against the Chief.  The Missouri Governor other 2-bit politicians and that great American (NOT) sen claire mccaskill (D-I hate cops).

Everyone played into the false thought process of “kinder and gentler” policing.  Works great when at a community meeting where the crowd is semi- friendly.  During a riot, where the heard mentality takes place, not so much.  Idiots making uninformed and untrue tweets and FB posts.  All in order to inflame the already amped up protesters.

Tom’s new book examines the impact of Ferguson, MO a previously quiet bedroom community for St. Louis as it is thrust into the national and international spotlight.  That spotlight did not shine on the good and heroic efforts of law enforcement.  Nooooo, but rather the plight of the poor, disenfranchised rioter.  God I hate the word “disenfranchised!”

A little about Tom Jackson.  Tom served as a member of the St. Louis County Police department for over thirty years.  During this time he distinguished himself for actions above and beyond the call of duty and rose to the rank of Captain.

Upon retirement Tom assumed the position as the Chief of Police for the City of Ferguson.

I’m running out of room…but there is a movement afoot to draft Tom to run against mccaskill in next years senate race…more on that soon.

Let’s make this book a best seller.  I’ve ordered my copy, how about you?
