This will be a very interesting.. Police Chief names Darren Wilson as the officer that shot and killed 18 year old Mike Brown. From Zerohedge:
Police suggest Brown was prime suspect in a crime… As The BBC reports,
Michael Brown, the black teenager shot by police on Saturday in Ferguson, Missouri, was asuspect in a robbery just moments earlier, police have said.
Police say Mr Brown, 18, was one of two men suspected of robbing a nearby convenience store.
Minutes later he was shot by Officer Darren Wilson after a struggle, Ferguson police Chief Thomas Jackson said on Friday.
Here is the photo from the convenience store. Click here.
The Nation Journal reports,
After nearly a week of protests, on Friday the Ferguson, Mo. Police Department identified the officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown.
At a press conference, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said Darren Wilson, a police officer who had been serving in the force for six years, was responsible for the shooting.
Jackson did not take questions, but earlier told CNN that the responsible officer was “devastated.”
The news comes after five days of turmoil in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb of 21,000.
On Sunday night, Darren Wilson shot and killed Brown, who was unarmed. Since then, there have been protests in the street every night. Ferguson police initially responded with SWAT teams, tear gas, and rubber bullets. On Thursday, the state government announced a switch, taking St. Louis County police officers off the beat and placing Missouri State Highway Patrol officers in command.
The naming comes after hackers tried to figure out the officer responsible for themselves. On Thursday, Anonymous released the name and photo of a Ferguson police officer the group claimed to be the man who shot Brown. Ferguson police quickly denied their claim, and Twittersuspended the Anonymous account that had sent out the information.

Is this Darren Wilson?
Black officers call for changes to ease racial tension in St. Louis police
Darren Wilson, president of the Ethical Society of Police, speaks to members on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013, during a meeting to discuss racial tensions in the department after a racially charged letter was left in an African-American police officer’s mailbox.
Minority officers sounded off for more than two hours Wednesday before the police department’s highest-ranking black commanders about issues they believe illustrate racism within the ranks and the need for reform. But those commanders blamed some of the issues on unmotivated officers.
About 30 members of the Ethical Society of Police packed the organization’s office for the special meeting convened to call black commanders to action in the wake of a racist letter sent to a black police officer, presumably by another officer in South Patrol.
The group’s president, Sgt. Darren Wilson, said last week that the racist note was symptomatic of a larger, citywide problem. About a third of the 1,325-member police force is African-American; the city it serves is almost equally divided between black and white residents.
“If you’re treating a police department employee like this, how are we treating our citizens?” Wilson asked.

This is pure speculation but he is a police officer in St.Louis called Darren Wilson…
Important update: There is certainly a problem as several witnesses that witness the shooting came forward in the media and stated that the officer was white. Now, yesterday Anonymous ‘announced’ the possible name (Bryan Willman). There is an update on Epoch Times that St. Louis Police Department is stating that are two Darren Wilsons on the Fergerson police force and neither Sgt. Darren Wilson (the pic above) nor Bryan Willman are the officer who shot Mike Brown. From Epoch Times:
The St. Louis County Police Department released the name of the police officer who killed Michael Brown on Friday after public pressure.
It’s not Bryan Willman; the department says it was Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran of the force.
However, no photos are available as of yet of Wilson–and there’s two Darren Wilsons on the Ferguson police force. The Darren Wilson who shot Brown is not the black Wilson who is president of the Ethical Society of Police.
We have to see from the result this entire state as well as federal investigation who is telling the truth…the real question who is the other Darren Wilson???
