Policing Ferguson-Policing America, Part II

I just finished Tom Jackson’s book.  Wow, what a page turner.

Tom was smack in the middle of the upheaval that resulted from the shooting of Michael Brown.  He was asked to resign, but refused.  One of those calls came from US SEN claire mckaskill (D-I Hate Cops).TJ

Let’s unwind this a bit.  SEN mckaskill will be running for office again next year.  Congress and the Senate have an approval rating in the single digits.  Police have an approval rating of around 75%.  SEN mckaskill supported the rioters, which she referred to as peaceful protesters.  Nothing peaceful about it.  Additionally, the majority of those arrested were NOT from the St. Louis area.  Some came from as far away as NY and CA.

A number of non-politicians have recently run for office and defeated their opponents.  The President and the Governor of Missouri come to mind.

There currently exists an underground movement to have Tom Jackson, the former Chief of the Ferguson, MO Police Department, run for the office of US Senator in opposition to SEN mckaskill.  Do the math senator.  Cops and their sphere of influence vote a hell of a lot more than out of town rioters.  Her unwanted and unnecessary interference in the Ferguson matter may be her undoing.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if Tom Jackson ran for this office and called SEN mckaskill and DEMANDED her resignation.

Run Tom, run!
