    Nice try. Not buying it. I bet you couldn't post it fast enough.

    Quote Originally Posted by opendebate View Post
    The small city of Jennings, Mo., had a police department so troubled, and with so much tension between white officers and black residents, that the city council finally decided to disband it. Everyone in the Jennings police department was fired. New officers were brought in to create a credible department from scratch.
    (Racial tension was endemic in Jennings, said Rodney Epps, an African American city council member.
    Police faced a series of lawsuits for using unnecessary force
    ďThere was a disconnect between the community and the police department. There were just too many instances of police tactics which put the credibility of the police department in jeopardy. Complaints against officers.)

    Wilson got a job in the police department in the nearby city of Ferguson.

    People who know him describe him as someone who grew up in a home marked by multiple divorces and tangles with the law. His mother died when he was in high school. ( I read in a different article that she was a con-woman who killed herself) A friend said a career in law enforcement offered him structure in what had been a chaotic life.

    Wilson has had some recent personal turmoil: Last year, he petitioned the court seeking a divorce from his wife, Ashley Nicole Wilson, and they formally split in November, records show

    when Wilson was a freshman in high school, his mother pleaded guilty to forgery and stealing. She was sentenced to five years in prison, although records suggest the court agreed to let her serve her sentence on probation.

    Darren Wilson

    So why wasn't this story released like the story was suppose to be so incriminating and telling about MBs "character"? What does this tell you about officer Wilson?

    Frankly, I'm just as appalled by the release of this kind of information about this officer as I am by the blatant attempts at manipulating the narrative by the release of personal information about MB.
    Can we all agree to ignore this kind of crap?



    I doubt that any court that handles this case will find this police officer innocent or guilty of anything based on anything that his father, mother, brother, sister, wife or anyone beside him may have done or not done.

    But I could be wrong.

    I am really wondering what your point is. I am hoping it isn't what I think it is.

    I have to agree with Shrubnose on this one:

    I believe that we can all step back from this kind of thing and not allow ourselves to be manipulated by it. Facts are facts and really are all that should matter to us as we observe

    They shouldn't. The point is that these kinds of stories are irrelevant. This is just as irrelevant as the stories published about MB. It's all ugly.

    I could care less whether or not you believe me.

    If this story was irrelevant, then why did you did you perpetuate its shelf-life by posting about it here?

    Why did anyone else on DP post stories about MB? Did you bother to ask that question when you saw them?
