    They matter as much as the background done on Michael Brown. Surely you don't expect the news media to ignore this officer's past?

    This garbage is used against Wilson, but Brown's strong arm robbery just prior to the shooting doesn't count?

    Homey don't think so.

    Yup. I myself couldn't care less about the officers parents, upbringing, or the whatnot. What interests me is the part that he was part of an entire police department that had to be fired due to racial tensions. You know things are bad when they have to start from the bottom up. Not saying Wilson himself contributed to any of the problems, but he didn't have to work for such a corrupt department.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Or how about Brown's rap lyrics, they must be totally relevant considering we had multiple threads and posts about those.

    WTF does being "a liberal" have to do with it?

    - Criminal convictions of Wilson's mother - or the convictionsof any third party? - not relevant at all.
    - Wilson's assosciation with a troubled police department that was disbanded? Relevant in the subjective sense.

    As with Brown's choice of rap lyrics, both can indicate pre-dispositions towards certain attitudes.

    I think that the information regarding his police record his pertinent, however there is no reason to go and try to demonize the guy because of his home life. I also come from a family of divorce and have a family member that's been entangled with the law, does that make be a bad person as well?

    However, I also do think that much of the information being released about Brown is not pertinent either. We should be focusing on what occurred right before, during, and after Brown's shooting.

    Its okay to dig into the past of a minority to assassinate his /her character (Trayvon), but how dare you dig into the past of a white law enforcement officer!!! Have you no shame !!!!

    (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?
    What does any of this have to do with what happened on that day?

    I think that is what the OP is making a point of.
