|Wilson wants a normal life.|
As the nation waits for the grand jury decision on the fate of Ferguson officer Darren Wilson, many communities are planning for riot control and the possibility of race incited violence.
The racist right is hoping that Blacks go bananas and tear up the towns and suburbs.
Obviously the lines are drawn and people have already made their minds up on the situation.
Somehow I am thinking the Zimmerman verdict all over again.
CNN reports that Wilson may resign after this. He fears that if he stayed on the Ferguson Police force the residents are going to revolt. Wilson still maintains that he done nothing wrong but knows that the impact is felt and he does have some ounce of remorse to the family.
While Wilson has told associates he would resign to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers, he has expressed concern about resigning while the grand jury was still hearing evidence for fear it would appear he was admitting fault.
|Again a dead body can't tell a tale.|
The officer's supporters have claimed Wilson fired only in self-defense, pointing to witness testimony and leaked grand jury documents that suggest Brown might have attacked Wilson, struggled for his gun and perhaps charged the officer moments later.
Brown's backers have been likewise adamant in blaming Wilson, claiming the officer shot a young man who, according to some accounts, was holding up his hands in surrender.
This dispute as to what happened at that crucial moment, the handing of the investigation from the outset and the fact that charges were not brought against Wilson sparked days of protests on the streets of Ferguson. The ensuing police response, which many have called heavy-handed, and the violence, property damage and looting of some during the protests only deepened the sense of mistrust.
