Darren Wilson Resigns From the Ferguson Police Department

Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, revealed in a statement that he had resigned from the Ferguson Police Department on Saturday (November 29).

“I, Darren Wilson, hereby resign my commission as a police officer with the City of Ferguson effective immediately,” he wrote in his resignation letter. “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.”

Darren continued, saying: “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.”

Michael Brown's Parents Speak Out After Officer Darren Wilson's Interview, Call His Account 'Disrespectful'

Michael Brown‘s parents, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr., appeared on the Today show this morning after Officer Darren Wilson made his case last night and defended his actions after shooting their son over the summer.

Michael Sr. called Darren Wilson’s account “crazy” and “disrespectful,” and added, “For one, my son, he respected law enforcement. Two, who in their right mind would rush or charge at a police officer that has his gun drawn?”

The family attorney, who joined his parents at the interview, said, “When you have people of color be killed, they try to demonize and play the stereotypes, and they try to put the police officer who killed our children on a pedestal. It’s just not right and we have to fix this system.”

Michael‘s parents have called for peaceful protest after the grand jury made the decision not to indict the officer in the shooting of their son on August 9.

He added, “There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed – even angry. It’s an understandable reaction.”

He continued, “We have made enormous progress in race relations over the course of the past several decades. I have witnessed that in my own life, and to deny that progress, I think is to deny America’s capacity for change. But what is also true is that there are still problems – and communities of color aren’t just making these problems up. Separating that from this particular decision, there are issues in which the law too often feels as if it is being applied in a discriminatory fashion.”

In case you missed the big news, Darren was not charged for killing Michael in August.

Michael Brown's Family Releases Statement After Officer Darren Wilson Not Charged By Court

After Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson was not indicted in the death of the teenager he shot earlier this year, Michael Brown, riots broke out in the streets, and his family is now releasing a statement asking the public to join them in peaceful protests.

“We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions. While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change. We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen. Join with us in our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera. We respectfully ask that you please keep your protests peaceful. Answering violence with violence is not the appropriate reaction. Let’s not just make noise, let’s make a difference,” the family said (via NBC News).

Our thoughts are with Michael‘s family during this difficult time.
