BREAKING: Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson Resigns

This just crossed my desk:

The police officer who fatally shot teenager Michael Brown has resigned from the Ferguson Police Department.

Darren Wilson, who has been on administrative leave since the August shooting, announced his resignation effective immediately on Saturday, one of his attorneys told the Associated Press.

The announcement comes days after a local prosecutor announced that a grand jury would not seek charges against the 28-year-old Wilson, who is white, for shooting Brown, who was black and found to be unarmed.

Note, please, how Brown’s name is listed in the article before Wilson’s. Is The Hill trying to argue that Brown was innocent and that it’s just desserts that Wilson is resigning?

One also wonders whether or not Wilson will be able to get a job elsewhere, after the media savaging he’s been subjected to for all these months. As for me, my prayers go with him.
