So, I just watched the Ferguson Police Chief announce the name of the officer involved in the Ferguson, MO shooting of Michael Brown. Sergeant Darren Wilson is the name and this comes up on a Google search in an unrelated article;
The Ethical Society of Police, which represents African-American police officers, issued a letter to its members Tuesday, pledging to meet with African-American police commanders within the next week to express concerns about the lack of diversity among high-ranking officers in south patrol.
The group’s president, Sgt. Darren Wilson, said the highest-ranking black officer in the south patrol is a lieutenant. Wilson said a lack of minority commanders may have created an environment where someone felt comfortable enough to put a racist letter to an officer in a public mailbox.
So, since it’s an organization of black police officers, and Darren Wilson is the president of the organization, I’m guessing Darren Wilson is black himself. Maybe I’m naive about these things, but what’s the whole Al Sharpton thing about?
On edit: I guess they’re not the same guy, see that’s why we don’t let you folks put people’s names and addresses on the blog.
