Darren Wilson resigns


Originally posted on theGrio:

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The white police officer who killed Michael Brown has resigned from the Ferguson Police Department, his attorney said Saturday, nearly four months after the fatal confrontation with the black 18-year-old that fueled protests in the St. Louis suburb and across the nation.

Darren Wilson, 28, has been on administrative leave since the shooting on Aug. 9. His resignation was announced Saturday by one of his attorneys, Neil Bruntrager. The resignation is effective immediately, Bruntrager said.

A grand jury spent more than three months reviewing evidence in the case before declining in November to issue any charges against Wilson. He told jurors that he feared for his life when Brown hit him and reached for his gun.

The U.S. Justice Department is still conducting a civil rights investigation into the shooting and a separate probe of police department practices.

The shooting struck up a national debate…

ABC News and George Stephanopoulos paid Darren Wilson Mid-to-High’ Six Figures For Interview. To Lie.

ABC News and George Stephanopoulos paid Darren Wilson Mid-to-High’ Six Figures For Interview. To Lie.

ABC Paid ‘Mid-to-High’ Six Figures For #DarrenWilson Interview

BY   For GOTNEWS

 

A NBC source with knowledge of the #DarrenWilson interview talks said that ABC offered to pay “mid-to-high” six figures for the interview.

 

The source did not say an exact figure because NBC stopped bidding for it after ABC upped the ante.

 

The taped interview was shot on Tuesday. Clinton operative-turned ABC News host George Stephanopoulos will do the interview.

 

The choice for Stephanopoulos is curious given that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon was once touted as a potential running mate to Hillary Clinton.

ABC Violated Its Own Rules When It Paid For #DarrenWilson Interview

ABC News appears to have violated its own rules when it paid for Darren Wilson’s interview, Gotnews.com has learned.

 

In an interview with the Plain Dealer, Jeffrey W. Schneider, ABC News’ senior vice president for communications, said that the network doesn’t pay for interviews.

 

But ABC, like the other networks, says it won’t pay for exclusive interviews, known as checkbook journalism. Jeffrey W. Schneider, ABC News’ senior vice president for communications, confirmed the network’s policy of not compensating for interviews. (Mark Dawidziak, “Network reporters race to reach Cleveland, story,” Plain Dealer, May 8, 2013).

 

Darren Wilson today, just like George Zimmerman in 2012, doesn’t understand this is not a legal case – it’s a political case using the legal system….

I refuse to show the entire Darren Wilson interview, find that garbage on your own if you want to see a circus of lies, this is good enough for witnessing lies and misinformation.

 

Darren Wilson defends shooting Michael Brown

 

How Much Did ABC Pay for the Darren Wilson Interview?

 

Figures are starting to pop up on Twitter. One I saw placed the number in the “mid to high six figures.” Even if that’s probably high (I don’t know, is it?), even if he was in the mid-to-high five figures, it strikes me as utterly reprehensible. ABC news is essentially paying this guy tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars?

 

He killed a young man. I say murdered, but we must at least admit that he is being paid for having been the one who killed this young man.

 

This is beyond what I will accept from a news organization at this point. I have had well and truly enough. Not only should ABC News be boycotted forever, but they should be actively protested at every opportunity.

 

Stephanopoulos is horrible, and his organization is total garbage. Wilson, meanwhile is benefiting to the tune of tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, and that’s above whatever his asinine followers contributed to his virtually unneeded “legal defense fund” (the citizens of St. Louis County got to pay for his legal defense and his prosecution all in one paycheck!).

George Stephanopoulos’ Darren Wilson Interview Speaks Volumes About ABC News

George Stephanopoulos’ interview with Darren Wilson – the police officer who killed African-American teenager Michael Brown – tells us a lot more about ABC News than it does about what actually happened that day in Ferguson, Mo.

 

Wilson’s account of events was hardly unexpected. He sounded like someone who had been well coached by attorneys, both in regard to potential criminal charges and a possible wrongful-death civil lawsuit. Stephanopoulos mischaracterized his demeanor as “very clinical,” when the better description would be “very lawyered up,” which is strictly an observation, not a criticism.

 

ABC, by contrast, approached its coup of landing the first sit-down chat with Wilson in an unorthodox way, or at least one that says a great deal about the network’s priorities, which have been crystal clear since Stephanopoulos – as host of “Good Morning America” – was designated the principal breaking-news and big-event anchor, putting him a rung above “World News’” David Muir within the ABC News hierarchy.

 

Thank you  Got News for your contributions to this post.

Darren Wilson received over $400,000 from donations through GOFUNDME before that was shut down due to outraged protest. The donations were said to be for legal fees and living expenses.

 

Darren Wilson was and is employed by the Ferguson PD, which has a police union that provides legal defense of all it’s officers, including those who murder unarmed Black teens. No legal defense fund was necessary.

 

Darren Wilson was and is employed by the Ferguson PD and was on “paid” administrative leave from August 9th until November 24th, the entire 107 days. He received his salary, so no living expenses were necessary.

 

My question is this, if he didn’t need donations for living expenses since he was being paid, and if he didn’t need a legal fund since police union provided him with a lawyer, which he never had a need for, why is Darren Wilson allowed to keep close to $500,000, or $400,000 (depending on whom you believe) in donations? Is that fraud?

 

Why is a killer allowed to reap benefits from killing? Civil Trial People.

DeAndre Joshua Shot Dead in #Ferguson Riots – Was Good Friend of Murder Witness Dorian Johnson

On Monday night 20 year-old DeAndre Joshua was shot dead in Ferguson.
His charred body was found in a car on Canfield Drive just yards from where Michael Brown was shot dead.

 

CNN reported: Joshua had been shot in the head, police said. An accelerant was used to light him on fire, but the fire went out on its own, police said. He had burns to his arm, fingers and both legs.

 

USA Today reported on his brutal murder.

Amid the rubble and ashes of a city convulsed in anger over the death of Michael Brown, a different family stood in shock and grief over the death of another young black man: DeAndre Joshua, 20.

 

At 9 a.m. Tuesday, a resident of an apartment complex spotted Joshua’s body inside a parked car, a white Pontiac Grand Prix, near Canfield Green Apartments, the same complex where Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson shot Brown on Aug. 9. Blood-soaked shattered glass lay in a pile on the ground beside the car.

 

Family members said Joshua’s death is tied to the protests that consumed Ferguson after St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch revealed the grand jury’s decision not to indict Wilson. But family members said they did not know specifically how he died.

 

DeAndre was reportedly a friend of Dorian Johnson – Michael Brown’s buddy.

Ferguson, MO has yielded yet another death. This time, 20-year-old DeAndre Joshua was shot dead during the massive riots in the St. Louis suburb. Though details are still murky, the young man was allegedly shot by a stray bullet while sitting in his Pontiac Grand Prix. Reports since last night claimed that there have been over 150 gunshots during the turmoil, not to mention over 25 businesses and buildings that have been destroyed. Joshua’s car was parked less than a mile from where Michael Brown was killed by Officer Darren Wilson on August 9th.

Ferguson resident Richard Taylor, who lives nearby the location where Joshua was killed recalls hearing men outside his home conspiring to kill someone.

“I’m still stunned because he never had any problems. He was a good kid,” relative Brian Joshua, 45 said, as other family members sobbed. “It’s like somebody just hit us with a brick.”

 

DeAndre Joshua graduated from high school and worked at Walmart, he said.

 

Walmart said Joshua had worked at Walmart as a stocker for more than a year.

 

“We are deeply saddened to learn the news that one of our Walmart family members tragically lost his life,” Dacona Smith, senior vice president for operations at Walmart, said.

 

As police towed Joshua’s car, his grandmother Renita Towns said she had little hope that police would investigate and learn the cause of her grandson’s death.

 

“Police don’t care — he’s black,” Towns said.

Walmart Murder: Ohio Declines To Indict Two Police, Killers Of John Crawford III

Ohio Walmart Murder: Ohio Declines To Indict Two Police, Killers Of John Crawford III

 

 

By Urban Intellectuals Media Activist:

 

The black community has waited to find out what would happen in the case of John Crawford, the young father who was shot down inside of a Walmart Store holding a toy gun. The wait is over, but unfortunately, it isn’t the response we wanted to hear.

 

The Ohio grand jury met, deliberated and decided not to indict the two officers who shot and killed John Crawford. The event happened at the Beavercreek, Ohio, Walmart on August 5th, 2014, according to Special Prosecutor Mark Piepmeier.

 

 

 

 

The Walmart video has been released. you can see Mr. Crawford walking around the Walmart store with the toy rifle. Police were called as a store employee, who later admitted he lied, said Mr. Crawford was waving and pointing the gun at customers in the store. Police arrived tense to say the least.

 

The police walk into the video to encounter Mr. Crawford from behind. Before he could turn around, shots were fired and Mr. Crawford was down on the ground after to fatal shots.

 

The grand jury did see the video and hear the 911 call from the Walmart employee, along with testimony from 18 people regarding the case. They provided this statement after denying to pursue the case.

 

“The events of August 5th were tragic and we wish the outcome of that evening had been different. However, based on the information the responding officers had and Mr. Crawford’s failure to comply with the responding officers orders, the officers did what they were trained to do to protect the public. The officers followed accepted law enforcement training protocol in their response to the report of an active threat in the Wal-Mart store. The grand jury review of the evidence and subsequent no bill decision indicates the officers’ actions were not of a criminal nature and justified under Ohio law.”

 

The City will have no further comment pending the Department of Justice review.”

From The Daily KOS:

 

Ohio grand jury: No indictments in John Crawford Walmart shooting

 

by Jen Hayden

 

Stunning news out of Ohio. Special prosecutor Mark Piepmeier has announced that after three days of grand jury testimony, there will be no indictments in the shooting death of John Crawford III, which took place inside an Ohio Walmart in August.

 

Video taken from Walmart surveillance cameras were released at the press conference and they still don’t seem to tell the whole story.

 

Based on the video they released, Crawford does not appear to be pointing the air rifle at anyone. Ronald Ritchie was the 911 caller who alerted police and claimed:

 

Ronald Ritchie said Crawford “was just waving [the gun] at children and people…I couldn’t hear anything that he was saying. I’m thinking that he is either going to rob the place or he’s there to shoot somebody.

“He didn’t really want to be looked at and when people did look at him, he was pointing the gun at them. He was pointing at people. Children walking by,” Ronald Ritchie said.

 

Unless there is additional video supporting Ritchie’s original claims, which he has since recanted, it is hard to imagine why charges haven’t been brought against Ronald Ritchie at a minimum.

 

Crawford’s family, who were on the phone with him at the time of the shooting, are disputing the police version of events, specifically that he ignored warnings to drop the “weapon.”

 

See the press conference and surveillance video below the fold.

 

10:25 AM PT: To clarify, the grand jury were only considering whether to indict the two police officers who fatally shot John Crawford III. No word on whether any action will be taken against Ronald Ritchie for the exaggerated and/or false claims he made to the 911 operator.

 

Thank you The Daily KOS & Jen Hayden.

 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Nitorioussoapbox

 

Here’s some logic & common sense: When caucasian open carry AmeriKKKan citizens start to get shot on the spot, with no verbal warnings or verbal identification given by law enforcement, then and only then will WE THE PEOPLE start to see laws changed and indictments handed down by Grand Juries.

 

People are screaming for the arrest and indictment of the 911 caller, Ronald Ritchie, for the exaggerated and/or false claims he made to the 911 operator. It’s not at all logical to take a legal route with Ronald Ritchie, no matter how stupid, racist and untruthful his actions were, if you allow the very policemen who murdered John Crawford The III, in cold blood, to walk free.

Cops Gun Down Ohio Man Holding Toy Rifle In Walmart ‘Like He Was Not Even Human.’

 

Published on Aug 8, 2014

“I could hear him just crying and screaming,” Johnson said. “I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”
(Dayton Daily News) Man police shot in Walmart killed over fake gun, family says
Relatives of John Crawford, the man shot dead by police at a Beavercreek Walmart, say they’ve contacted civil rights organizations because they believe the shooting was not justified.

 

They believe he was killed possibly after he picked up a toy gun in the store.

 

Crawford, 22, of Ridge Drive in Fairfield, was identified as the man Beavercreek police shot and killed Tuesday night.

 

LeeCee Johnson, who said she is the mother of Crawford’s children, said she was on a cell phone call with Crawford when he was shot by officers. She said Crawford went to the area to visit family members.

 

“We was just talking. He said he was at the video games playing videos and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were. And the next thing I know, he said ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shot him,” she said, adding: “And I could hear him just crying and screaming. I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”

 

Beavercreek Police Chief Dennis Evers did not answer questions Wednesday but said officers acted appropriately.

 

Screenshot (138)
Johnson said she has two children with Crawford: John Crawford IV, who is 1, and Jayden Crawford, who is 4 months old. She just found out she is pregnant with a third child, but never got the chance to tell Crawford.

 

“He had a lot of family members that cared about him, and his kids. They’re not going to be able to know their dad. They’re too young — only 4 months and a year old — to even know how wonderful he was to them,” she said.

 

Johnson said police did not talk to her at the time of the shooting. She believes the police did not do their job properly and wants to see justice done. Once the case is reviewed, they will find everything she said is consistent with what camera footage and phone records will show.

 

“I hope the police get fired and sent to jail, because (the officer who fired) didn’t do his job. He didn’t treat him like a human being. He didn’t treat him someone at Walmart looking at toy guns,” she said.

 

Beavercreek Police and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, when contacted Wednesday, refused to say whether Crawford was armed with a toy or a real weapon.

 

“I can’t comment – that’s part of the open investigation,” Attorney General’s Office spokeswoman Jill Del Greco said.

 

Lamon Brown, Crawford’s cousin, spoke on behalf of the family. The family has contacted the NAACP and National Action Network, he said.

 

“He does not own (a rifle-like weapon). We think it was a toy,” Brown said. “We actually think it was a toy. After these things happen they usually report what kind of gun it was, but they’re not saying what kind of gun it was.”

 

Tasha Thomas, who identified herself as Crawford’s girlfriend and appeared in the audience with his family members at Wednesday’s police news conference, said that Crawford has two children and that she has known him for four months.

 

She said she drove him to the Walmart after picking him up at an outlet mall in Cincinnati. He was not armed when he entered the Walmart, she said. She said she was with him in the store, but was in another aisle when he was shot.

 

“He did not have any type of gun on him,” she said. “It’s not fair.”

Man shot dead by police in Walmart ‘after he picked up a toy gun’

 

 

 

 

Published on Aug 8, 2014

(rawstory.com) – Police fatally shot a man carrying an air rifle at an Ohio Walmart earlier this week. Another customer called 911 to report 22-year-old John Crawford waving what appeared to be an AR-15 at children and others at the Beavercreek retailer. The mother of Crawford’s children said she was speaking to him by cell phone when he was confronted by police in the store. “He said he was at the video games playing videos, and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were,” said LeeCee Johnson. “The next thing I know, he said, ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting, and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shot him.”

I’m going to attempt to write this without profanity…..fuck that, the police in the United States of AmeriKKKa have lost their muthafuckin minds. How the holy hell does a law enforcement officer arrive on the scene and just shoot a “Black” man dead for holding a weapon in a Wal-Mart, without first ascertaining if said weapon is real? How many caucasian fucks open carrying weapons have been stopped by death from opening carrying?

 

10527476_10204362000630666_5901028698192094102_n

 

 

I am sick and fucking tired of blatant racism fueling AmeriKKKa. Laws in this “never great nation” are not based on skin tone or lack of Melatonin in your DNA. Which is known as a Melatonin Deficiency. If coward ass caucasians are allowed by LAW to open carry, then a Black man is allowed by that same Law to open carry to protect himself from those coward ass caucasians who “legally open carry.

 

Common sense & logic 101. Laws are written for the people by the people,…ALL PEOPLE. NOT JUST RACIST CAUCASIANS.

 

A Race War is needed to purge the United States Of AmeriKKKa of it’s disease of racism. Blood needs to be shed to remove this divide between racist caucasians and people of color.

 

Here ends the lesson.

 

What The United States Of AmeriKKKa has become………….
