Al Sharpton: Ferguson Police Chief’s ‘Insensitive’ Apology ‘Too Little, Too Late’

Rev. Al Sharpton is not satisfied with Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson‘s apology to Michael Brown‘s family and the protestors who took to the streets in the wake of the 18-year-old man’s death at the hands of Officer Darren Wilson last month.

“I’m truly sorry for the loss of your son,” Jackson said in a video message posted Thursday morning. “I’m also sorry that it took so long to remove Michael from the street.”

During a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., Sharpton called the apology “a little insensitive” and suggested it was “too little, too late.”

Several NPR reporters were on the scene:
