Where is Darren Wilson's Story?

Liberty Minute August 25 2014


One of the first things every police cadet learns is the necessity of documenting practically everything he does as an officer. This is especially true of any incident involving the use of lethal force.


On August 15, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson released an incident report regarding a robbery in which Michael Brown was a suspect. He then said that his department had released every available detail about the confrontation in which Brown was fatally shot by Officer Darren Wilson.


Conspicuously absent was an incident report from Officer Wilson concerning the shooting. No report of any kind was completed until August 19, when the St. Louis County Police Department ? which is investigating the shooting ? released a document that was devoid of any details regarding that homicide.


In any homicide investigation, the suspect is questioned immediately after the killing, and discrepancies in his story are seen as evidence of criminal conduct. At this point, more than two weeks after the shooting of Brown, the admitted shooter has not provided even the first version of his story. What this means is that the official police version is still being written ? and we will have no way of knowing whether the story we hear from Wilson is reliable.


Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
