Ferguson, Missouri police chief Tom Jackson is hitting back at Attorney General Eric Holder who recently called for “wholesale change” at the Ferguson police department.
“I think he’s about to leave office and needs to say he accomplished something in Ferguson,” Jackson told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday. “Right now, I’m low-hanging fruit.”
Jackson has faced intense scrutiny over the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
The chief’s critics have said he has failed to release information about the investigation in a timely fashion and that the department mishandled its response to widespread protests held in Ferguson following the shooting.
