27 Aug 2014 Black Supporters of the Police in Ferguson? Yes!
While still following the Ferguson tragedy, I saw an interview with a protestor who is supporting Officer Darren Wilson, who stands accused of murdering Michael Brown. Yes, he does have people supporting him.
This woman is unafraid of all the death threats the officer’s supporters typically get – so much so that they often hide their faces and identities. This police supporter, a black woman, courageously spoke on camera in support of the men and women willing to “take a bullet for me” (and all of us).
She called the police her family. I admire her for putting her own life on the line, publicly voicing her support for a beleaguered white policeman facing the weight of federal and state investigators and the anger of millions of people who already consider him to be guilty even before he can be charged.
I am sure Officer Wilson appreciates you, Robin Clearmountain.
