FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Police in Ferguson have revealed the name of the six-year veteran accused of fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager in the St. Louis suburb.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said Friday the officer’s name is Darren Wilson.

Jackson said earlier this week he wasn’t naming the officer due to death threats.

Police have said 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot Saturday after an officer encountered him and another man on the street. They say one of the men pushed the officer into his car, then physically assaulted him and struggled with the officer over the officer’s weapon. At least one shot was fired inside the car. The struggle then spilled onto the street, where Brown was shot multiple times.

Witnesses say the officer fired on Brown as he ran away.

    Thoughts and Prayers goes out to Micheal Brown’s parents. I hope and pray that justice will be served on his behalf. Clearly that was excessive force/police brutality.

    Mr. Crump, Kansas City has a black mayor, black police chief, serveral black city council members, more than three black police officers, several black retired police officers, our first black mayor was Emanual Clever whom we voted to be our 5th District US Congressman. Kansas City out populates Ferguson, Kansas City is quite racially diverse. Like most mid to large city’s Kansas City has it’s issues but I must say we show up at the polls/we Vote. So like President Obama said “don’t boo Vote”. Therefore don’t lecture Kansas City by telling us what happened in Ferguson could happen here. Focus on what you were hired to do there in Ferguson.

    Is Benjamin Crump an opportunist. The Citizens of Kansas City don’t need a lecture from you about lessons learned. Kansas City’s population, diversity and community policing outnumbers Ferguson by a landslide. We don’t need lectures from you about how to run our City. Thankfully we’re doing ok, not perfect but ok. Do your research about Kansas City’s diversity and Voting record sir, before you start lecturing us west of the Mississippi/I-70 West/Kansas City.

    Where is Al Sharpton? Let’s not forget Atty Crump handled Trayvon’s case, and Zimmerman is a free man! Give Phaedra Parks a chance she can’t do no worse! She got sons, she will FIGHT!!!! She did get Bobby Brown off ! Michael Brown family needs answers and Justice for their son ! Rip Young Brotha.

  6. ’’Skepticism’’ Donot call me American If I can’t be treated well Because of my nature, But I do have a mind And I also have a heart They’re aware of the Same brightness as all. Do not call me citizen If I have to be botched. Indeed, my DNA is hot Because Mississippi is Still burning. Quench then the fire, and The best will glow among us. The mine’s tag no. found In Savannah, and it belonged To the same anthem as all. Do not call me American If so on, and on! Do not call me Bo, as well, If my exertion can’t be branded Into the melting-pot, Because of my backdrop, and The mine’s shabby boots are still At the Museums where they’re Aware of the same color as all. http://www.artnook.weebly.com

  7. One of the witness did say there was a struggle at the police car. BUT regardless, once a person puts their hands up and is unarmed…the right thing to do is arrest him…not shoot him to death.
