Darren Wilson Opens Up A Year After His Killing of Mike Brown

*Nearly a year after he gunned down and unarmed 18-year-old Mike Brown and unwittingly started the #BlackLivesMatter movement, former Ferguson, MO policeman Darren Wilson has given his first interview. Wilson told The New Yorker that he and his family have to take precautions when they go out.

“We try to go somewhere — how do I say this correctly? — with like-minded individuals. You know. Where it’s not a mixing pot.”

Wilson, who was not indicted in Brown’s killing, still lives in relative seclusion the St Louis area. He says he hasn’t reflected much on who Brown was because he had been preoccupied with the waves of protests in Ferguson and the civil lawsuit Brown’s parents filed against him in May.

“You do realize that his parents are suing me?” Wilson told The New Yorker’s Jake Halpern. “So I have to think about him.”

When asked if he’d ever given thought about who Brown was as a person, his answer was telling:

“who he was as a person?” “Not really,” Wilson admits. “Because it doesn’t matter at this point. Do I think he had the best upbringing? No. Not at all.”

In the days following the fatal shooting, he informed his then six-year old stepson that Michael Brown “was a bad guy,” and went on to recall Brown as having “the most intense, aggressive face” during their altercation, similar to that of a “demon.”

Wilson who’s been without work since he resigned from the Ferguson police department, told the magazine that he’s interviewed for a few law enforcement positions, but the Brown case is “too hot an issue, so it makes me unemployable.”

  1. This interview is very chilling & telling of an example of how Cops dont give a damn who you are as a human being & will snuff your life away with no remorse or 0% fux given. This murderer should never get another job in law enforcement.

  2. I just wish the Obama DOJ would explain how they were able to “conclude”, based purely on “physical, ballistic, forensic, and crime-scene evidence, and statements from purported eyewitnesses”, that Brown did not raise his hands in surrender and that Brown had been advancing towards Wilson.

  3. Hey Reds.. I’m surprised you didn’t comment on the Obama / trump story.. being a hater of the Obama administration and all! Here you go again.. blaming O for not pressing charges and bypassing the three branches of the Legislation! I cant wait for O to leave.. so sick of you and others blaming him for what he can and cant do regarding ALLL the BS in the world!! Anyhow….DW will pay for the killing of Mike Brown.. one way or other!! He has no remorse and appears to be content w/ the life he’s taken. Speaking on MB’s up bringing is cold! It will come back to haunt him one day!

    • C, I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt, seeing that today is such a sentimental occasion for die hard Obama supporters. Being his birthday and all. So you are more than likely less objective than you normally would be, regarding topics relating to him.

      But first on Trump. Honestly dude, I don’t really have time to follow the likes of Trump. I barely glanced at the headline regarding him and Obama. It’s only now that I focused on it, that I realized even what the topic was about. Really don’t have the time or bandwidth to waste reading or commenting on Donald Trump.

      Now back to important stuff.

      ” blaming O for not pressing charges”

      I was just reporting the facts regarding his Department of Justice, quoted directly from the link accompanying this story. I’m pretty sure that if it was a Republican Department of Justice, we would ask the exact questions regarding their conclusions.
