Screen Shot 2014-11-21 at 12.37.50 PMDarren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager whose death has sparred a climate of unrest in Ferguson, MO. is contemplating leaving Ferguson PD as he awaits his fate at the hands of the grand jury.

According to CNN, Wilson feels his exit will help alleviate the pressure his department has been under during the months following the fatal shooting. “Wilson has apparently been cautious to not move forward with an official resignation while the grand jury is still deliberating, for fear it would appear he was admitting fault”.

There is a very strong likelihood that his resignation could be announced today.

In the meantime, the atmosphere in Ferguson remains tense as law enforcement officials remain on standby as the grand jury continues to deliberate. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency for 30 days on Monday in order to prepare for the worse case scenario. A few people were arrested Thursday night for disturbing the peace.

    ferguson needs to protest until he’s gone. we already know the system is gonna give him a pat on the back, so the next best option is to force him outta uniform. i know that won’t stop him from getting on at another pd, but he should at least be forced to uproot his life to do so. wilson gotta go! it would be nice if there was a website that tracked dirty cops like the ones for sex offenders.

    There is no compromise in a murder case.

    Resigning and doing what….going to another police department?

    This is at least the second time he has gotten into trouble for police related racial misconduct.

    What is his resignation supposed to do? Prevent him from being indicted?

    Is he going to resign in the hopes that people will forget that he murdered someone?

    He can afford to quit, especially if he is not indicted. Several hundred thousand dollars have been donated to a fund for him.
