UPDATE: *FERGUSON POLICE SAY OFFICER DARREN WILSON SHOT MICHAEL BROWN

Following much consternation yesterday after Anonymous 'announced' the possible name (Bryan Willman) of the police officer who shot and killed Mike Brown in Ferguson; Police Chief Thomas Jackson is about to announce the details...

 

 

Police suggest Brown was prime suspect in a crime... As The BBC reports,

Michael Brown, the black teenager shot by police on Saturday in Ferguson, Missouri, was a suspect in a robbery just moments earlier, police have said.

 

Police say Mr Brown, 18, was one of two men suspected of robbing a nearby convenience store.

 

Minutes later he was shot by Officer Darren Wilson after a struggle, Ferguson police Chief Thomas Jackson said on Friday.

 

 

 

We suspect this will do little to calm tensions

Forty-five percent of US citizens don’t trust in justice amid police killings of civilians, according to a poll by HuffPost and YouGov in the immediate aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown, a black teen, by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

 

...

 

Sixty-nine of black Americans thought the officers used lethal force too frequently, while only 37 percent of white Americans thought so. Over 65 percent of black US citizens don’t trust the justice system to deal with the guilty, while 40 percent of the white population don’t believe in the system either.

Live Feed:

 

The Nation Journal reports,

After nearly a week of protests, on Friday the Ferguson, Mo. Police Department identified the officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown.

 

At a press conference, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said Darren Wilson, a police officer who had been serving in the force for six years, was responsible for the shooting.

 

Jackson did not take questions, but earlier told CNN that the responsible officer was "devastated."

 

The news comes after five days of turmoil in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb of 21,000.

 

On Sunday night, Darren Wilson shot and killed Brown, who was unarmed. Since then, there have been protests in the street every night. Ferguson police initially responded with SWAT teams, tear gas, and rubber bullets. On Thursday, the state government announced a switch, taking St. Louis County police officers off the beat and placing Missouri State Highway Patrol officers in command.

 

The naming comes after hackers tried to figure out the officer responsible for themselves. On Thursday, Anonymous released the name and photo of a Ferguson police officer the group claimed to be the man who shot Brown. Ferguson police quickly denied their claim, and Twittersuspended the Anonymous account that had sent out the information.

Is this Darren Wilson?

Black officers call for changes to ease racial tension in St. Louis police

Darren Wilson, president of the Ethical Society of Police, speaks to members on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013, during a meeting to discuss racial tensions in the department after a racially charged letter was left in an African-American police officer's mailbox.

From 2013,

Minority officers sounded off for more than two hours Wednesday before the police department’s highest-ranking black commanders about issues they believe illustrate racism within the ranks and the need for reform. But those commanders blamed some of the issues on unmotivated officers.

 

About 30 members of the Ethical Society of Police packed the organization’s office for the special meeting convened to call black commanders to action in the wake of a racist letter sent to a black police officer, presumably by another officer in South Patrol.

 

The group’s president, Sgt. Darren Wilson, said last week that the racist note was symptomatic of a larger, citywide problem. About a third of the 1,325-member police force is African-American; the city it serves is almost equally divided between black and white residents.

 

“If you’re treating a police department employee like this, how are we treating our citizens?” Wilson asked.

*  *  *

This is pure sepculation but he is a police officer in St.Louis called Darren Wilson...

NOTE: It appears this is not 'the' Darren Wilson - he is based in Hollywood, CA.

So let me get this straight.  If it turns out this kid had been running from him due to physical threats from the officer to the kid, then shot him since the cop was upset his punching bag decided to run away, you're pefectly okay with it? 

Please remove your hood when you answer as it muffles your voice.

This guy understands Operation Mayhem..

"St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch Thursday night blasted the decision by Gov. Jay Nixon to replace St. Louis County Police control of the Ferguson situation with the Missouri State Highway Patrol."

“It's shameful what he did today, he had no legal authority to do that," McCulloch said. "To denigrate the men and women of the county police department is shameful."

 

Governer Nixon apparently didn't get the memo...

They didnt call that gangbanger BIG MIKE for nothing...

Though even if he was small, they still pack knives and guns.  What cracks me up is that they always pull the "...and he was going to go to college"  Yeah go to a college to rape some white women, and steal and pillage.

MLK would roll in his grave if he saw the black community come out for these thugs.

That's as bad as this article citing Huffington Post as a source.

ANYONE, ANY COLOR attacking a cop deserves to get shot. Put your "fascist state" concerns aside and concentrate on the topic.

The lib media wants to promote the idea that any black man that dies is a racist crime. I'm not buying it.

Have you all become Al Sharpton Jr's ?

I say the police have not been forceful enough in this situation. Millions of $$$ lost in theft/looting/property damage in a WASTED attempt to appear "understanding".

Years ago, in New Jersey when we were first married, my exhusband, a sailor, had a breakdown and was walking down the highway just minding his own business. Suddenly a bunch of cops pulled up and surrounded him and drew their weapons. They made him lie down in the street because someone thought he looked like someone they were looking for. I guess he was lucky they didn't just shoot him out of hand.

Great point! Your husband obeyed the commands and survived. I hate it happened to him, but the police didn't kill him because MOST police officers are murders. They were trying to do a job, thats all... it wasn't personal or targeted... just wrong place, wrong time.

The point for me is - In my former country - The United States of America, peace officers did not shoot unarmed suspects on a regular basis. (IIRC) About ten years ago it was announced in the Chicago area that the police could, at their discretion, shoot a fleeing suspect (armed or unarmed) in the back if the cop was so inclined. Over the years this Fascist policy has spread. Half the cops out there are unfit to serve.

Dear god Bump. This happened to Mr Miffed too! At 17 we had this stupid argument at 1AM and he slammed his car door and walked off. I figured he was just going to walk it out and come back. After an hour and 1/2 I went looking for him figuring he was a lot angrier than I had realized. Found him on his knees with his hands behind his head with 4 cops with flashlights shining in his face. Of course, with his absolute hatred of authority, he wasn't endearing himself to them. I asked why they were doing this and they claimed a house was broken into and his SHOES matched the discription of the perp. I explained what had transpired and they finally let him go. I sure he would have been arrested otherwise.

In the middle of the night I sped away from a cop trying to stop me. It was in a remote location and I wouldn't stop for anyone there. When he called for back up and cornered me I was sure I was going to end up hog tied and shot. When they saw it was a woman with a hospital ID badge, they backed off.

It is completely unfair.

Sorry that happened to you.

I was in a conveinience store and made a purchase, a cop was standing there looking me up and down. It was very clear what he meant by it. I left, got in my car, and he left and got in his. He followed me a long time. I even made evasive moves and he matched those. This went on a long time. I pulled into an apartment complex, whipped around a corner quick, and parked. Put my head down and positioned my mirror so I could see. He passed a number of times, back and forth. I can't tell you how scared I was. I stayed there with my head down a long time. Finally I got up and left. He was at the exit driveway, grinning at me. He did not follow me. I cried all the way home.

That kind of thing has happened to me more than once. That was the worst one. Other times cops have been kind, they are not all like that.

I have not remembered that event for years. I tear up a little telling you about it now.

Dear God, how horrible MsC!

In San Diego there is a famous case surrounding a highway patrolman named Craig Peyer. He murdered a young girl almost exactly in the same way you described. He actually went on TV after the incident and told women what to do when confronted by an assailant. Pretty balzy considering you just murdered someone. This incident was one of the reasons I would not stop and I didn't even know a cop was involved in the crime. Today I am older, wiser and more prepared. But even with a gun and a knife, I was caught of guard by someone when I was pumping gas at 4AM alone. Luckily it didn't escalate or I would have only had the flowing gas as a weapon. Mr Miffed got the Frowny Face for leaving me with no gas to get to work. Even he admitted it was deserved.

The robbery suspect thing has already been debunked, it was a bullshit attempt to tarnish the image of the victim via the media. The Ferguson chief of police has admitted that Brown had nothing to do with the robbery, and that the officer who shot him knew nothing about the robbery as well.  Don't believe everything you see on the internet.  Especially in ZH comments...

So you're all for shooting unarmed suspects?  The cop didn't call it in due to he knew he fucked up.  He knew who the suspect was, he knew where the suspect lived.  Instead of letting him run away while the cop calls for backup to the suspects home and surrounding area, he shot him.  If the kid was still running or stopped, doesn't justify shooting.  Hell, look at those NYPD that shot all the bystandars before the hit the guy with the gun.

Aside from any "side of the fence" you stand on, on this issue.   Here's what I think I see.  (completely separate from the militarization of the police issue)

Just one more straw on the pile of notions that African American's should be governed and policed by African Americans.   Like Mexican Americans should be governed and policed by Mexican Americans.   Which also fuels the inferior melanin endowed "caucasion" Americans (I sunburn way to easily) to have similar thoughts.

You don't have to be a genius to see that this mentality only exacerbates skin-color (or country of heritage) animosity.  And it's getting worse.

It wouldn't be such a problem if the tax basis was segregated so that earners enjoyed the services they pay for and didn't have to pay for all of this diversity/representation crap.

WTF do you think would happen in Ferguson if there were no social services paid for but with the money collected solely from the local citizenry?  What level of policing would that leave if any?

Better yet: You keep your earnings and property and take care of your own in your own way in your own place and I'll do the same.

SMALL government.  VERY SMALL government.  VERY SMALL LOCAL government.

Self sufficiency at the personal and community levels might earn you all some respect -and you might learn to solve your own problems if you couldn't always make them someone else's problems...
