CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

After being cleared by a grand jury investigating the fatal shooting of Michael Brown on August 9, 2014 Darren Wilson resigned today, Saturday November 29, 2014.

Darren Ferguson had been a member of the Ferguson Police Department for six years.

I, Darren Wilson, hereby resign my commission as a police officer with the City of Ferguson effective immediately. 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. For obvious reasons, I wanted to wait until the grand jury made their decision before I officially made my decision to resign. 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. I would like to thank all of my supporters and fellow officers throughout this process.”

— Darren Wilson

Protesters and Michael Brown’s family members have accused Wilson of murder in the incident and called for a special prosecutor to pursue charges against him.

The U.S. Justice Department is conducting separate investigations in the fatal shooting and into the practices of the Ferguson Police Department.

Wilson testified that Brown attacked him while the officer sat in his car, then fled. Wilson said he chased Brown and when Brown turned back toward him, he charged him, and refused orders to stop. Wilson testified he feared for his life.
