Darren Wilson: Racist Coward – Not Hero

Darren Wilson, Officer in Ferguson Shooting, Resigns From Police Dept. – NYTimes.com.

Ok, it didn’t take a genius to figure out that this dumbass would be resigning. How on Earth could he possibly remain on the Ferguson police force after brutally murdering an unarmed man?

This coward was and continues to be unworthy of any police uniform. He embodies everything we want our police NOT to be.

We tend to lump our police officers into the same “hero” status that we give to firefighters and soldiers who voluntarily put themselves in danger to protect the rest of us from harm. And there is no argument here that many police officers deserve to be in that group.

But more and more in my opinion, our police officers and even entire police departments are seeing civilians as dangerous adversaries rather than the clients who hired them to protect and serve us.

A hero is someone who places their life in danger to protect those who are incapable of protecting themselves. Police who shoot to kill at the first sign of danger are no heroes. They are epic cowards. If you pump 12 rounds into an unarmed man, how is that heroic? How do you place your life in danger when you eliminate any perceived danger before it even materializes?

Darren Wilson was never in any real danger. He had non-lethal options. He could have tazed Michael Brown. He could have placed his cruiser into drive and sped away to a safe distance and then waited for backup. He could have gotten out of his vehicle and faced Michael Brown like a man. That’s what heroes do. But instead, Darren Wilson, “feeling threatened,” unloaded his pistol into an unarmed man.

And the manner of the shooting confirms Darren Wilson as a flat-out racist too. You don’t have to watch very many episodes of Law & Order to know that when a victim is stabbed once, the motive is usually not considered hatred. When, on the other hand, the victim is stabbed 12 times, the detectives always view the murder as a crime of hate.

The same holds true with bullets. Shoot a man once or twice and he’s dead – or at least down. Shoot him another 10 times and you must have really hated that guy. I submit that Darren Wilson placed his hatred of African-Americans on full display with this shooting and he should be charged with a hate crime accordingly.

Sadly, we live in a society where white police and white lawmakers have conspired to give the police absurdly broad protections. They can kill with impunity and they can be racist without accountability. Some heroes…

And now poor Darren Wilson with his pregnant wife has to quit his job with the Ferguson Gestapo, er, I mean Police to become a white man living in a community that hates him. Hmmm, maybe there is some justice after all.

But I wouldn’t worry too much about the Wilson family. I’m just speculating here, but it’s my suspicion that hundreds of thousands of dollars have already been raised on poor Darren Wilson’s behalf by those batshit, gun-huggin’, NRA-luvin’  wackos who still believe that Wilson is a hero. And I wouldn’t be surprised when he gets a million-dollar book deal and a commentator job on Fox News.  After all, someone has to be the voice for all those poor police officers who have to live in fear of unarmed black men every day.

  1. I vehemently disagree with your position. VEHEMENTLY!! I am on the officer’s side on this one. Forensics clearly show that the kid was in his face, leaning into the car, trying to get wilson’s gun. Further, having been married to a cop for many years, and from all my police officer associations from the various law firms where I worked, I can state that it’s easy for people to Monday morning quarterback when they aren’t playing the game! Further, when a cop tells you to stop, sit, stay or whatever and when it’s a lawful order, you obey. Failure to do so has consequences…I don’t care what race or gender one is!

    The ferguson community is using this as an excuse to act stupid and that’s how the nation sees them…stupid!

    Remember the “Jenna 6?” Six black guys beat up one white guy and half the idiots I used to work with showed up in “Free the Jenna 6” tee shirts! Classy to say the least! And yes, they were black! Talk about racist!

    What about the white woman raped in the park by black guys? By your definition, clearly she was at fault because she was white!

    The police officers represent law and order in this country and I think they do a damn good job. I think Wilson should not have resigned and he should go to work for another police dept. the victim’s parents can put a stop to this, but they are getting their 15 minutes of fame, so they will perpetuate the matter.

    Ferguson needs to heal. But once again the liberal media is forcing this issue down our throats and skewing the issue. The Grand Jury heard the details, testimony, and has seen the forensics…from all of this, those Grand Jurors rendered their decision. That speaks volumes!!

    Everyone wants equality, but at what expense? Rogue officers should be dismissed, but for those who are working hard to do the right thing and protect both the community and themselves, and are forced to make a life or death decision, put it through due process and let the Grand Jury make its decision.
    Something to think about…

    1. You love to throw around that term “liberal media” and vilify them for all that’s wrong with our country when they are just doing their job. Yes, they sensationalize and yes they over-report, but there is nothing new with that. The press has ALWAYS been this way. It was this way in 1776. It’s the nature of the beast. The Founders knew this and yet still decided the media was so very important that the first amendment to our constitution was set forth to protect it. The Founders were well aware of the media’s benefits AND flaws but they also knew that democracy is doomed without a free press. So they put their faith in the PEOPLE to decide what parts of the news to believe and what parts to disregard. They had faith that the PEOPLE were intelligent enough to make those judgments.

      But here you sit, 200+ years later ranting like some pathetic victim about how that mean old liberal media is controlling our country and is responsible for all that is wrong. Phooey. Quit your whining and start acting like you have the intelligence the Founders hoped you would have. The liberal media didn’t shoot an unarmed Michael Brown. What the media DID do was tell the world about it. Based on your views, it seems you would have rather had the story swept under the rug with all the other stories about violence, racism and inequality toward black people (not to mention Hispanics, gays, Asians and every other minority) so America can get on with being one great white infallible nation under a white god with liberty and justice for all white people.

      Let’s examine your recipe for a perfect America: You censor the media, institutionalize the preeminence of white people over other races, allow the unfettered persecution of anyone who is non-white by legislating laws that give police immunity from prosecution, you incarcerate minorities 500% more often than whites, when incarcerated, minorities get 60% longer sentences than their white counterparts, and when asked, you deny that any of this is really happening. Seems that was Hitler’s recipe too.

      If Michael Wilson had been white, he’d be alive today. End of story.
