Ferguson Swears in First Black Police Chief Delrish Moss

Ferguson Swears in First Black Police Chief Delrish MossMoss is replacing Tom Jackson, who resigned last year after a Justice Department report cited racial bias in Ferguson’s criminal justice system. After he was sworn in, Moss said it’s the department’s task to bring “nobility” back to police work. The new leadership comes in the wake of protests and riots that overtook the city in the summer of 2014 after Michael Brown, an 18-year-old unarmed black teen, was shot and killed by a Ferguson police officer.
