英语新闻:美国弗格森警察局长辞职

去年发生骚乱的美国密苏里州弗格森市官员周三宣布,该市警察局长杰克逊正式辞职,辞职决定一周后生效。此前,美国司法部调查报告说弗格森执法部门普遍存在对美国黑人的种族偏见。该报告点名批评了杰克逊和一天前刚宣布辞职的市行政长官约翰·肖,说他们鼓励警方大开罚单以增加政府收入。

(CNN)Embattled Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson resigned Wednesday, a week after a scathing Justice Department report slammed his department.

Jackson and the city "have agreed to a mutual separation," Ferguson officials announced.

"It's a really hard pill to swallow," Jackson said in a text message responding to CNN's request for comment.

He also confirmed his resignation in a letter to Ferguson's mayor.

"It is with profound sadness that I am announcing I am stepping down from my position as chief of police for the city of Ferguson, Missouri," Jackson said, adding that serving the city as police chief "has been an honor and a privilege."

The resignation will go into effect March 19, Jackson said, to "provide for an orderly transition of command."



"I will continue to assist the city in any way I can in my capacity as private citizen," Jackson wrote.

But even though he's about to be out of a job, Jackson will still collect a paycheck.

Jackson will receive a severance payment and health insurance for one year, the city said, with Lt. Col. Al Eickhoff assuming his duties during a nationwide search for a new chief.

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles said he couldn't go into details about the personnel discussions behind the decision to give Jackson a year of severance pay.

"I think it's fair to say that in many executive level private industries, you would get a similar treatment," he said.

Knowles said the police chief decided to resign "after a lot of soul searching."

"I think it's important that we recognize that the chief made this decision because he wanted to do this," Knowles said. "He thought it was the best for the city and the Police Department."(CNN)
