Don’t be fooled by Lyda dusting off the Ferguson Commission Report… the whole commission and report was all for show.
Don’t be fooled by them dusting off the Ferguson Commission Report… the whole commission and report was all for show. Gov Jay Nixon shelved it, Starski Wilson and Traci Blackmon moonwalked away from it, using the commission as a stepping stone to bigger and better and never looked back once their seats were solidified on the gravy train.
Not one person on the commission held Dem Governor Jay Nixon’s feet to the fire or the incumbent Rep Governor Eric Greitens. The white establishment Democratic machine, their black mascots and many of the clergy you see out front and center soaking up Stockely limelight came out against Tishaura Jones, the one candidate for mayor who actually implemented parts of the Ferguson Report… let’s not forget one of Lyda’s first acts as new mayor was to remove the judge that kept St. Louis from becoming another Ferguson. You see how that worked out.
The ONLY way this works is by cleaning house and installing people who have the stomach and are committed to seeing it through… people who are not compromised. Change will not come from the ones who shelved it, used it for a comeuppance or are only turning to it pacify the masses. They will only give us the appearance of support/enforcement while enforcing it as little as possible. No different than their play with police reform.
After Stockley, city leaders once again point to Ferguson Commission report as a way forward
The 198-page report, consisting of 189 “calls to action,” was the culmination of nearly 10 months of work for a commission established by former Gov. Jay Nixon.
