Ferguson protestors discouraged by NYT profile of Darren Wilson


After months of relative silence regarding Darren Wilson, the police officer accused of shooting an unarmed Michael Brown to death in Ferguson, Mo., the New York Times has published a report detailing some of Officer Wilson’s statements to investigators. Wilson tells the story of a struggle inside his police car:

The police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., two months ago has told investigators that he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear for his life as he struggled over his gun with Mr. Brown, according to government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter.

The officer, Darren Wilson, has told the authorities that during the scuffle, Mr. Brown reached for the gun. It was fired twice in the car, according to forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first bullet struck Mr. Brown in the arm; the second bullet missed.

The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.

Some Ferguson protestors are taking the news report as an early sign that Wilson will not be indicted in the shooting.

@deray if an indictment doesn't come I pray for #Ferguson and all if it's people. It will be a bad time for every1 #ArrestDarrenWilson

@deray There was never going to be an indictment the way McCulloch did this. He didnt want DW prosecuted & he made sure it wouldnt happen

.@HollaBlackGirl @deray This appears to be from the INDEPENDENT FEDERAL INVESTIGATION which McCulloch has no power over. Nice try though.

@HollaBlackGirl @luckylindy31 @deray Take him 2 civil court there is a much less threshold of proof. Take everything he owns. It's something

@OLAASM @OpFerguson JESUS FUCK this conversation is full of police-sympathy trolls. Police are not "heroes". They're jerks in cop uniforms.

@OpFerguson @AdversAerialOne Id like to hear one ONE INCIDENT where any human reached into a cop car to grab his gun. Ever. Fucking LIARS.

While most are busy debating the legal issues at hand, the folks at Anonymous Operation Ferguson are tweeting about rockets.

Pray for the USA. If they fail to indict this cold blooded murderer the entire nation will burn. | #ArrestDarrenWilson @deray @AntonioFrench

Think we'll get the Palestinian Anons to shoot us a PDF on how to build Kassams. Would be fun, no? X-P | @stuxnetsource @perthtones @OLAASM

— Operation Ferguson (@OpFerguson) October 17, 2014

I don't know, Kassams use PVC pipe and at close range would be quite devastating. @stuxnetsource @perthtones @OLAASM

The only reason they don't work so well for the Palestinians is they have to shoot them so far. 😛 | @stuxnetsource @perthtones @OLAASM
