And so it is that Darren Wilson’s career as a police officer is over and so is his life as he knew it.
Wilson resigned Saturday two minutes after Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told him of “credible threats” to the department and officers.
Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said he didn’t “press Wilson to resign.” He just wanted to make him aware of the “credible threats” to the department and officers.
Two minutes later, Wilson resigned.
The city has severed all ties with him and he will not receive a severance package or any benefits.
Wilson will still face a federal civil rights investigation and most likely a civil lawsuit to be filed by Brown family.
He has no job, no income, and little hope.
Mayor James Knowles said he “realizes the change will probably not bring immediate calm to the city” and muttered a bunch of nonsense.
So much for Wilson doing his job.
So much for justice.
