    How about -- nobody cares about the past stories about Michael Brown or Darrell Wilson? How about we focus on the fact that a very short time before he was shot, Brown was robbing a convenience store?

    Let's just focus on that. Not his past, or the officer's past. Let's just focus on what happened the day he was shot.

    I haven't even bothered to read crap about Michael Brown's home life or school life, not a single "human interest" piece. I'm not interested in other than the facts in this case as they unfold. I don't know whether he has sisters or brothers or is an only child or anything. I don't care.

    I also don't care about Officer Wilson's previous employment and the guilt-by-association smear or about his parents' pasts or his divorce. I want to know what happened--what he did and what Brown did.

    Well good for you then. You're in a minority (no pun intended) and this thread is not directed at you .

    Re: Darren Wilsonís first job was on a troubled police force disbanded by authorities

    I have been divorced twice and they were two different women. Not even the same one, like both different. My first ex-wife was convicted of welfare fraud, thanks to me. SHe was also convicted of shop lifting in twice in Walmart. She was banned for life form Walmart. Who the hell gets banned from Walmart?

    Maybe it was a good thing that I divorced her. I sure as hell think so. Wonder if that is going to come up if I ever do anything. I bet they just mention that I have been divorced twice and leave the rest out.

    This is my point and this I will agree with. (provided it is what can be proven that happened and is not just speculation )

    Dang, that's gotta be bad. I don't think I've ever heard of anybody getting banned from Walmart.

    My husband got banned from Best Buy once because he told the manager to go find a grown up that he could talk to.

    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?
    And so begins the trashing of the policeman. I hate this sort of thing regarding any of the people in an incident. It has no bearing on the facts of the incident. But some stupid people will believe this trash because it feeds into what they want the outcome to be.

    The surveillance video from the store is pretty damning.

    1.) This info was made known shortly after the Officer was identified.
    2.) It isn't relevant.

    One of my kids is banned for life from a particular Walgreen's on the opposite corner from the high school. Fighting.
