BBC News with Jerry Smit.

The police chief of the US city of Ferguson is to resign. Thomas Jackson has been criticized by many activists following the shooting of an unarmed black teenager by one of his officers in August. Kim Ghattas reports from Washington.

"Police Chief Thomas Jackson was one of the two officials whose behavior was highlighted IN a scaling report by the department of justice last week. The report was prompted by the fatal shooting of 18-year old Michael Brown by a white policeman last summer. It alleged racial bias in the city police department and court system and outlined ways in which the police and courts functioned as a money-making enterprise, mostly targeting the city’s African American population. Mr. Jackson has so far resisted calls to step down over his handling of the shooting of the unarmed black teenager and weeks of protests that followed."

Key Phrases/Words

1. resign v. 辞职,放弃

2. highlight v. 强调,突出

美国弗格森市警察局长辞职。在八月份警察开枪打死一名手无寸铁黑人少年后,托马斯·杰克逊遭到多位活动人士的批评。金·加塔斯从华盛顿发回报道。

“两位警官的行为受到上周司法部报告的特别关注,警察局长托马斯·杰克逊正是其中之一。去年夏天18岁的迈克尔·布朗被一名白人警察开枪射杀的事件促使司法部做出了这份报告。报告称该市警察局和法院系统存在种族歧视,并称警察局和法院像盈利的企业那样运作,且主要针对该市的非洲裔美国人。因为射杀手无寸铁的黑人少年以及随后数周的抗议活动一直要求杰克逊辞职,但他一直在抵制这种呼声。”
