Ferguson mayor resists calls to resign

Law enforcement officers stand on watch outside the Ferguson Police Department in Ferguson, Missouri on March 12, 2015 during protestsThe mayor of Ferguson rejected growing calls Friday to resign in the aftermath of a blistering US government report into the fatal police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. Mayor James Knowles struck a defiant tone in a flurry of interviews with US news media as St Louis County police kept up the search for the gunman who wounded two officers amid an otherwise peaceful demonstration on Wednesday. Two-thirds of the population is African-American, but the city government and police force are predominantly white. On CNN, Knowles — a Ferguson native and one-time civilian employee of its police force — said that if citizens really want him to go, a recall process exists for ousting disliked elected officials.
