Ferguson Police Officer Awarded For Meritorious Action

Wilson being awarded

“(Officer Darren) Wilson won a commendation this year after he subdued a man who was found to be involved in a drug transaction, and he was honored in a ceremony in the Town Council chambers”

Man do I have questions about that sentence but for now let’s just pretend that I don’t and that Officer Wilson did a good thing; and was awarded for it.

That seems Ok until you learn “The Rest of the Story”

 The rest of the story? Only that shortly before being awarded for his brave actions; Ofc. Wilson was part of a small police force that was ultimately disbanded because of their racist actions and attitude as described here:

“The small city of Jennings, Mo., had a police department so troubled, and with so much tension between white officers and black residents, that the city council finally decided to disband it. Everyone in the Jennings police department was fired. New officers were brought in to create a credible department from scratch.That was three years ago. One of the officers who worked in that department, and lost his job along with everyone else, was a young man named Darren Wilson.”

After being sacked by that Department Darren Wilson decided to take his “Special Talents” to the neighboring city of Ferguson. 

 “He seemed to be doing pretty well as a police officer — until shortly after noon on that Saturday when he

And he shot this one dead in the street

passed two young black men walking down the middle of the street, put his police cruiser into reverse and said something to them.”

So it seems that a Police officer can be awarded for actions of merit and then turn around and murder a helpless young man; on his knees; with his hands up; surrendering.

It seems that same officer can be awarded for his current actions despite his darkly checkered past record of racism as a cop.

So then does that apply to all Police who have been awarded for their actions.

Why; Yes; Yes I think it does.

Awards for Cops?

Better start awarding any Cop who chooses not to shoot any random young black man he encounters.

How many must die before we stop awarding people for killing our children

Should I award Officer Friendly for saving my child when I know that he might have left your child to die or shot him himself?

My White child and your Black child.

I think not. The time is past to ignore the systematic murder of children and the oppression of all of our “less than wealthy” Americans
