Chief Executive for City of Ferguson Resigns

Ferguson's Chief Executive Resigns

According to NBC News, Ferguson's City Council unanimously approved a "mutual separation agreement" with Shaw Tuesday night.

"The City Council and John Shaw feel this is the appropriate time to move forward as we begin our search for a new city manager," Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III said in a statement.

Hired by Ferguson in 2007, Shaw served as the city's chief executive, putting him in charge of the courts and police force said by the Department of Justice to have practiced "intentional discrimination, as demonstrated by direct evidence of racial bias and stereotyping about African Americans by certain Ferguson police and municipal court officials."
