Jackson says that the public - particularly the black community - should not rush to judgment, but wait for the facts whenever there is a police incident. "Most law enforcement officers are honorable people doing a very difficult job for low pay and little thanks," says Jackson. "We should pray for law enforcement instead of persecuting them. We should honor them instead of harassing them. And yes, we should hold wrongdoers accountable, but let's heal our country instead of tearing it apart."
Jackson also points to the deeper issue at hand with civil unrest against our law enforcement officers. "Stoking this hysteria against cops is reckless and destructive. Those living in poor neighborhoods are most in need of help from police. Turning cops into the enemy will only embolden criminals and make law abiding residents less safe. We must STAND With Law Enforcement."
