Officer Darren Wilson Resigns
BHR HollyWood Reports...........The shooting death of Brown, 18, on Aug. 9 touched off angry protests in the St. Louis suburb, some of which involved looting and confrontations with police who used tear gas on crowds. More protests — sometimes turning violent — erupted this week after a grand jury declined to indict Wilson in Brown's death Monday.

Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, on Saturday resigned from the department

In his resignation letter, Wilson said he hopes the resignation calms the town. He also seems to acknowledge that he will never be a police officer again

"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," the letter reads.

Wilson says, "I have been told that my continued employment may put the residents and police officers of the City of Ferguson at risk, which is a circumstance that I cannot allow."

Darren is in Hide-Out
Wilson, who is white, claimed Brown, who is black, tried to grab his gun and that he was forced to shoot the unarmed teen after Brown charged him. Some witnesses claimed Brown had his hands up when he was shot.


The shooting ignited controversy and protests across the country and a discussion over race and policing.

Anthony Gray, an attorney representing the Brown family, said in a statement that "I believe Officer Darren Wilson made a personal decision that was in his best interest given the circumstances."

Wilson said that he has a "clean conscious" in the shooting, that Brown did not have his hands up, and that "I know I did my job right." He also said that he was sorry Brown lost his life, and feels remorse.
