Friday night, Chief Jackson said if the grand jury does not indict Wilson, he will immediately return to active duty. However, Chief Jackson said if the grand jury does return an indictment, Officer Wilson will most likely be fired.
Saturday, Jackson clarified his statements to MSNBC, saying he was speaking in legal terms. He said Missouri law would allow Wilson to return to the force if he is cleared of any charges. The police department would also conduct an internal review of the Michael Brown shooting, to see if Wilson violated any Ferguson police department policies.
Oh, if you indict him, he’ll be fired.
No, what happens is he’s suspended from duty pending the outcome of the trial. If he’s found guilty, he’s fired.
Jackson just keeps proving that this shooting was not righteous. And Ferguson needs to fire this troublemaker.
