Officer Darren Wilson: Photo Of Mike Brown's Killer Surfaces

Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, 28, received an award for "extraordinary effort in the line of duty" months before he gunned down unarmed teenager Mike Brown and left him in the street for 4 hours last Saturday, reports Yahoo News.

Wilson's father, John Wilson, posted how proud he was of his son on Facebook:

"Very proud of my son, Darren Wilson on his receiving a Commendation from his Police Department," John Wilson wrote on February 11. "Congratulations Son."

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson released Wilson's name during a press conference on Friday after 5 days of refusing to do so.

When reporters tried to contact Wilson, it was revealed that he and his family had "left town days ago."

Yahoo News reports:

Four days ago John Wilson turned to Facebook for support without mentioning his son by name.

"Dear FB friends, Our family is in need for prayers to be sent up for a family member," John Wilson wrote. "Circumstances do not allow for us to say anything further. Please pray with our family in mind. Put a covering of protection over our family member please."

A woman who replied in the comment thread told John that she could put him in touch with someone that "has been through many difficult times with his children. Prayers are what brought the family through the rough times. We are just a phone call away."

John Wilson thanked his many friends who were quick to offer encouragement.

"Please continue to do so as we deal with a family situation that is very challenging," he wrote.

In his last post this week, John Wilson shared a saying from a Texas evangelical pastor: "When something is ‘out of control' it is merely out of your control - not God's!"

The Ferguson police department has done it's best to paint Brown as the aggressor, describing Wilson as a "gentle" man and an "excellent" police officer who is "devastated" about killing Brown.

But he wasn't too devastated to stand over him and gun him down while the unarmed teen held his hands in the air.

The FBI is currently conducting an investigation, while the citizens of Ferguson continue to protest Brown's brutal slaying.

Paramedics aren't called for dead bodies, that is the coroner or medical examiner. I think they should have covered the body with a sheet.

Quoting nb34:

I would say pretty disturbing video. They just left him there and didn't even call the paramedics for him. I think that says a lot about the police there. Shame on them.

Quoting VooDooB:

Pretty awkward video.

Wonder why?

There is only a mob out to kill him.

Wasn't it Spike Lee who put release Zimmerman's address and the Black Panthers who put a bounty on his head?

People don't even know what happened but are out for his head.

At Darren Wilson’s house, neighbors say he and his family took off

CRESTWOOD, Mo. — In a neighborhood outside St. Louis, among the red brick ranch-style houses and well-manicured lawns and American flags flying, a house is being watched.

There are dark blue undercover police cars parked outside the house of Darren Wilson, 28, the police officer identified Friday as the man who shot and killed Michael Brown. And at the rear of Wilson’s house, there is also a marked police car sitting in the parking lot of the church.

A neighbor said that police have been here a couple days watching Wilson’s house on Manda Lane in Crestwood, a mostly white city of 11,000 people about 18 miles southwest of mostly black Ferguson.

The officer, who has been placed on administrative leave, left the neighborhood a few days ago.

The neighbor said the family got “spooked and took off pretty quickly before the name was announced.”

According to public records, Wilson, 28, was an honor roll student at St. Charles High School near Ferguson in 9th and 10th grade. His mother died when he was 16.

On Friday afternoon, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson described Wilson as “a gentle, quiet man” and “a distinguished officer.”

Joe Adlon, 49, who has lived here 40 years, said he knew Wilson. Adlon said he’s “sure” that Wilson didn’t mean to do it.

“Cops go through a lot,” said Adlon, who was watering his grass. “It’s hard to say what was going through this mind.”

Martha Arnoldy, 60, wife of the Crestwood police chief, who lives on the same street as Wilson, said there is an increased police presence in the neighborhood.

“It’s just a concern the thugs that did that stuff in Ferguson will show up here,” Arnoldy said. “Ferguson was a thriving community that had rebuilt itself. There’s a farmers market there on weekends. For this image to be out that Ferguson is a powder keg is not good.”

Arnoldy said that Wilson and his family “are in a safe place.”

No one answers at the door of Wilson’s house. A welcome sign hangs on the door. Behind the house, near the basketball court and swimming pool, there is still laundry hanging on the line.

I am not going to jump on what everyone "knows" of this officer.  All of this speculation on both sides means nothing.

Hopefully, a third party investigation brings this officer to justice if it was an unlawful shooting.

Of course they took off!  Why wouldn't they?  With the way things are going down, I would take off also.  Why should his family be put in harm's way?

This is where I start losing respect for people and their views.

I think his family should have left and him stay behind. Anytime someone kills another person then runs away we call him a coward not wanting to face the consequences. If he did nothing wrong why run away, only the guilty run.

Bullshit.  THis is NOT a normal situation.  With what is going on, he is a target. I'm sorry but a community does not have the right to find him guilty. He is innocent for now.  He did not "run".  He changed his location for safety reasons. When you have cowards like "Anonymous" trying to release his perosnal info, I am not faulting the guy for leaving.  I am sure the attorney including the prosecuting attorney knows his location.

Here's a full article on everything happening with this case. I've only just scrolled and briefly read this whole article but from the way it looks to me, I feel like the officer felt threatened and says he was attacked and had to protect himself.

"Police claim one of the men pushed the officer into his squad car, then physically assaulted him in the vehicle 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 have said the officer fired on Brown as he tried to run away."
