Captain Ron Johnson
Missouri Highway Patrol
On August 14, 2014, five days after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown ignited race riots throughout the city of Ferguson, Missouri, the nation found an unlikely hero in Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri
Highway Patrol. Charged with the Herculean task of restoring peace between a hostile African American community and the local police, Johnson, a 30-year law enforcement veteran and an African American, did the unthinkable; he took off his bullet-proof vest and joined the protesters.
In 2018, Captain Johnson founded Lodestone Solution Group, LLC. Lodestone’s Mission is to develop and inspire leaders to use a moral compass of empathy, compassion, and selflessness to discover personal and sustainable strength in leading others confidently, even if the whole world is watching.
Captain Johnson’s Memoir “13 Days in Ferguson” shares his view of what happened during the thirteen turbulent days he spent stabilizing the city of Ferguson.
