The protests over Ferguson’s failure to press charges against Mike Brown’s killer Darren Wilson continue, and now it’s been confirmed that Wilson has now resigned from the police department for safety reasons.
The New York Times writes:
The officer, Darren Wilson, who had worked in the department since 2011, submitted a resignation letter, said Neil J. Bruntrager, the lawyer. In the letter, first published in The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Mr. Wilson said: “It was my hope to continue in police work, but the safety of other police officers and the community are of paramount importance to me. It is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal.”
