Officer Darren Wilson Resigns After Michael Brown Shooting, But It May Not Be Why You Think

| Filed under: NewsViral: News

Officer Darren Wilson is an officer no more

For months, the country has been inflamed over Officer Darren Wilson shooting and killing 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

Last week, Wilson was not indicted by a grand jury, and riots broke out all over the country as a result. So, in the wake of that, Wilson has decided to resign.

On Saturday, one of his attorneys Neil Bruntrager said the resignation is effective immediately. Wilson explained that he did it because the police department was receiving threats of violence. He also added:

"I'm resigning of my own free will. I'm not willing to let someone else get hurt because of me."

Well, it's a little late for that, since people have been injured in the riots over this case, but late is better than never.

Wilson's resignation also added:

"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."

Well, this will at least help heal the community a little bit.

    Of course he quit his job. Why would he need to work again? After all the publishing deals he'll sign up for, money he'll receive from doing the interview circuit, and the private donations he's no doubt getting for his "heroism," he has practically won the lottery.

    Re: tacogirl – Not only were Brown's hands hands in the car, but he was trying to wrestle the officers gun out of his hand…evidenced by gun powder all over Brown's hands.

    Poor guy. I'm not saying that boy's death wasn't tragic but this man deserves better. If he'd shot a white boy things would have been different. He was acquitted (rightfully in my mind) so let's all move on and heal. Violence does not solve violence.

    It's bad when street tells justice what to do. Even Al Capone hesitated to attack police officer. I doubt he killed guy for fun, but justice have tools to figure out if killing was self-defense.

    Re: Vanessa87 – Please know the facts he was never acquitted. It never went to trial only before a grand jusry.

    * Michael Brown provoked the officer. You don't tell a police officer to f-off etc
    * Michael Brown reached into the officer's car & tried to get his gun. Additionally he punched the officer.

    * Why should the police put up with that kind of abuse ? There's a goodly percentage of people in the cities of America who have no respect for others and think that everything is scream and yell, and hit.

    * Quite a few of the 'witnesses' including Michael Brown's co-hort in crime, Dorian Johnson LIED to the news people and to the police; the autopsy proved that. Dorian Johnson for example said that he and Michael "weren't doing anything" decided to pick on them. He forgot to admit that Michael had just stolen cigars from a store and that he'd thrown the clerk into a wall.

    * The Grand Jury after reviewing all evidence realized that the officer testimony contained the most accurate account which is why they did not return with any indictments.

    * The African American community is acting like spoiled children who threaten to throw a destructive tantrum if they do not get what they want.

    * Where is the accountability for Michael Brown ? How about his lovely parents who did such a great job of raising him to respect others ? "My Michael is a big teddy bear, he likes to help people !," said his delusional mother. For them and many other African Americans, everyone else is to blame !!

    It's not his fault that people used this as a reason to riot, steal and hurt people….

    Wish he did not resign. I don't give in to my children when they throw tantrums. Let the thugs destroy their town

    A little late? You don't think he should have waited until the grand jury came back before making the decision to end his career? The career that he probably worked hard to achieve? The career that supported his family?

    As tragic as this all is, the officer isnt responsible for other peoples choices. They are choosing to riot, loot, to answer "injustice" with violence.

    These kinds of people will always be a part of the problem and never the solution…
