FERGUSON, Mo. — Late on a day when a large column of protesters began a 120-mile march to the governor’s mansion and several hundred more laid plans to expand the movement, Officer Darren Wilson announced his resignation from the police force where he served for six years before fatally shooting Michael Brown on Aug. 9.
“I’m not willing to let anyone get hurt because of me…” is he being ironic?
Unwittingly, yes. I suspect his use of the word “anyone” contains an implied qualification (“anyone white”).

Just having to resign is getting off quite easily for what he’s done. I hope there will be more consequence for him than that.
I hope so too.
