Are Ferguson Police Wearing 'I Am Darren Wilson' Bracelets?
On Wednesday (Sept. 24) a photo of an alleged Ferguson, Mo., officer wearing a "I am Darren Wilson" bracelet in support of the officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Mike Brown surfaced online.
The picture was seen on the MediaBlackOutUsa Instagram account.
Missouri Highway Patrolman Capt. Ron Johnson confirmed the bracelets do indeed exist, but insists they are a personal statement, not a reflection of the entire Ferguson police department.
The photos come just one day after a memorial dedicated to the slain teen was burned down, which caused rejuvenated agitation in Ferguson.
As it stands, the Support Darren Wilson Facebook page boasts 78,888 likes and prior to the unexplained halting of Officer Wilson's Go Fund Me Page, donations reached $500,000
