Fundraiser Page For Officer Who Shot Michael Brown Raises $50,000 In Two Days

As the National Guard advances on Ferguson, Missouri, a GoFundMe page has quietly raised over $50,000 for Officer Darren Wilson, the cop who allegedly shot Michael Brown.


The money has poured in over the last 48 hours.

Like most people out there, I feel for Michael Brown’s parents. Any mother or father in this situation would be overwhelmed with grief and rage, no matter the circumstances of the shooting. But I also feel for Officer Wilson. The 28-year-old cop is in hiding, fearing for his life. He’s being vilified as a murderer, even as details emerge that contradict the protesters’ narratives. The latest reports say that Michael Brown beat on Wilson so badly that he fractured his eye socket. According to The Gateway Pundit, “Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an ‘orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.’ This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.”

It’s good to see that some people want Wilson to get a fair shake in the legal system, and are donating money to ensure it. The protesters have a story about Michael Brown’s death and they’re sticking to it. But, as always, there seems to be More To The Story…much, much more. We shouldn’t allow Darren Wilson to become a whipping boy before all the facts come to light.
