Ferguson Police Chief Turns To Hannity To Handle His PR

After a long day of crowd control and reporter arrests, the chief made an appearance on Sean Hannity's show to reassure everyone he had things under control.

Police Chief Thomas Jackson took a breather from all of his responsibilities in Ferguson to make a brief appearance on Hannity. In the few short minutes he spent, he managed to tell the whitebread Fox audience that it was basically just black people being black. He didn't say that in so many words, but it was the message just the same.

He said:

  • The officer who shot Michael Brown was injured too. As if that justified shooting Brown over and over.
  • Ten shots were fired.
  • 'Outside agitators' are responsible for the unrest. (Read: Black panthers, or similar)
  • The shooter's name was being withheld out of fear for the safety of the cop involved.

If you're trying to bring a sense of calm to the community, Hannity's show is the last place on earth you should want to show your face.

If, on the other hand, you're interested in playing your side of the story to a bunch of nasty bigots, Hannity's show is exactly where you'd go.

I think we understand Chief Jackson better now.
