Ferguson Police Chief Offers Apology to Michael Brown’s Family

CHICAGO — The police chief of Ferguson, Mo., issued a public apology on Thursday, in the death of Michael Brown, telling the Brown family directly in a short video that he was sorry for their loss and the four hours that the body was left in the street.

“I want to say this to the Brown family. No one who has not experienced the loss of a child can understand what you’re feeling,” the police chief, Thomas Jackson, said, wearing a polo shirt and standing in front of an American flag.

“I am truly sorry for the loss of your son. I’m also sorry that it took so long to remove Michael from the street,” Chief Jackson said. “The time that it took involved very important work on the part of investigators who were trying to collect evidence and gain a true picture of what happened that day. But it was just too long, and I’m truly sorry for that.”

Mr. Brown, 18, was shot to death on Aug. 9 by Darren Wilson, a police officer, and his body was left in the street for about four hours, stirring outrage in the community. Officer Wilson has not been charged with a crime.

1. A day late and a dollar short. The apology should have been made in person about six weeks ago.

2. A little damage control at this late stage?

Something tells me the hammer is about to fall on this clown's career. Criminal charges may be in the works.
