When the video was released, Representative Jackson released a statement on Twitter, saying “I will apologize for my language, but I will not apologize for getting upset and speaking my mind considering the circumstances.”

I’m glad the video is out. It shows the incompetence of the authorities and their complete disregard for the young girl...
