Although Ferguson is no longer taking up primetime news real estate, violent confrontations with law enforcement persist. Last month, protests erupted in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson after Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer.
Thursday, protests (they’re still protesting the death of Michael Brown) got nasty as protesters took issue to cops wearing “I am Darren Wilson” bracelets. Wilson was the officer responsible for shooting Brown. According to the Daily Banter:
This march also comes on the heels of reports that Ferguson police officers have been wearing bracelets that say “I am Darren Wilson,” a reference to the officer who shot and killed Mike Brown, and who is currently the subject of a grand jury investigation into the killing.
The following video (also from The Daily Banter) shows protesters less than pleased with cops wearing the “I am Darren Wilson” bracelets. (Language NSFW):
The Daily Banter reported Ferguson Police Chief Jackson held an explicative laden press conference and then proceeded to march with the protestors. That went about as well as you’d imagine and law enforcement had to move in to protect Jackson.
