Missouri police are reportedly upset and have demanded an apology after five NFL players made a public protest Sunday (November 30) over the current Michael Brown drama.
According to reports, a St. Louis group wants punishment for Rams players making publicized gestures during pregame introductions.
The St. Louis Police Officers’ Association said it was “profoundly disappointed” with what it called a “display that police officers around the nation found tasteless, offensive and inflammatory.” It called for the players involved to be disciplined and for both the league and team to issue a “very public apology.” (Fox News)
Michael Brown’s shooter made this big announcement over the weekend…
Weekend reports claimed Michael Brown’s shooter Darren Wilson decided to resign from law enforcement in Ferguson.
Darren Wilson resigned from the Ferguson Police Department, his lawyer said Saturday, nearly four months after the white police officer’s fatal confrontation with the unarmed Michael Brown sparked protests across the USA. Wilson, 28, has been on administrative leave since the Aug. 9 shooting. His resignation is effective immediately, said one of his lawyers, Neil Bruntrager. (USA Today)
Wilson addressed whether his run in law enforcement may have come to a sudden end in light of the Brown shooting last week.
“I’m not sure it’s possible. I mean, you think they would accept me? You think it’d be safe for me?” Wilson asked. He said his notoriety could also put his fellow officers in jeopardy. “Can I put them in that situation?” he asked. Wilson said a final decision on returning to the force has not been made.
