|You think Darren Wilson will join Loserville as a contributor for stories about American crime?|
"I, Darren Wilson, hereby resign my commission as a police officer with the City of Ferguson effective immediately. I have been told that my continued employment may put the residents and police officers of the City of Ferguson at risk, which is a circumstance that I cannot allow. For obvious reasons, I wanted to wait until the grand jury made their decision before I officially made my decision to resign. It was my hope to continue in police work, but the safety of other police officers and the community are of paramount importance to me. It is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal. I would like to thank all of my supporters and fellow officers throughout this process."
The controversial figure in the shooting of Michael Brown has resigned from the Ferguson police department. Darren Wilson will resign to ease the tension that's risen since he was not indicted in the fatal shooting of the unarmed teen.
Wilson will be a private citizen.
His supporters some being White extremists will offer him and his new family their donations which by most estimates will be $790,000. He, his new wife (by whom is expecting) will now have to be out of the spotlight.
The Associated Press reports that Wilson, 28, has been on administrative leave since the shooting on Aug. 9. His resignation was announced Saturday by one of his attorneys, Neil Bruntrager. The resignation is effective immediately, Bruntrager said.
A grand jury spent more than three months reviewing evidence in the case before declining in November to issue any charges against Wilson. He told jurors that he feared for his life when Brown hit him and reached for his gun.
|Not a criminal.|
The U.S. Justice Department is still conducting a civil rights investigation into the shooting and a separate probe of police department practices.
The shooting struck up a national debate about race and police power.
After the shooting, Wilson spent months in hiding and made no public statements. He broke his silence after the grand jury decision, telling ABC News that he could not have done anything differently in the encounter with Brown.
Wilson said he has a clean conscience because "I know I did my job right." Brown's shooting was the first time he fired his gun on the job, he said.
Asked whether the encounter would have unfolded the same way if Brown had been white, Wilson said yes.
Wilson began his career in nearby Jennings before moving to the Ferguson job a few years ago. He had no previous complaints against him and a good career record, according to Police Chief Thomas Jackson, who called Wilson "an excellent police officer."
A few months before the shooting, Wilson had received a commendation for detaining a suspect in a drug case.
Will Darren Wilson join the folks over at Loserville?
I want to make clear to Fred101, conservatives, white extremists and those who support Wilson.
This description of Michael Brown by those in the junk food media was totally bias. This teen lived with both parents. Granted that his mother married another man, he had a two parent home. He was enjoying summer like most young adults out of high school. He graduated from high school. He was going to college to become a productive member of society. Everyone believes that he "robbed" a store of a few cigars. Everyone believes that he "attacked" the officer.
One thing that bothers me is the fact that he's 6'4" and Wilson was 6'4".
From a previous video that was posted by a resident of St. Louis, shows the former Ferguson officer arresting a filmmaker. Wilson telling the filmmaker that he's going to get arrested for taping him.
It's perfectly legal to record police officers while on duty. They can't impede on the right of a citizen filming.
And for Wilson to be that dumb not to have a vehicle with a dash camera only proves that he can spin a story and the pro-WHITE supporters will eat it up.
