Comments Left By Donors At Fundraising Site Set Up For Police Officer Who Killed Michael Brown
Donations are pouring in for the Ferguson police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager. The contributors for the officer left comments praising him for shooting “a common street thug” and removing an “unnecessary thing from the public!”
This brings back flashbacks of donations from Republicans pouring in for George Zimmerman.
[su_center_ad] The comments in the image below were written by donors to the online fundraiser set up to support Darren Wilson, the cop who shot Michael Brown at least six times in Ferguson, Missouri, last week. “This man is our friend. He fights for freedom,” one comment reads which was just left minutes ago.
So far, $162,146 has been donated within the last 5 days.
Wilson has since been placed on paid administrative leave and is now at an undisclosed location. The GoFundMe campaign to assist him was set up earlier this week by an unnamed supporter, according to Mother Jones. “We stand behind Officer Darren Wilson and his family during this trying time in their lives,” the page reads.
Some of the comments, along with donations:
A sample of some of the comments left:
“Ofc. Wilson did his duty. Michael Brown was just a common street thug.”
“Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box.”
“Black people can be their own enemy and I am not white…He was shot 6 times cause the giant wouldn’t stop or die. Evil people don’t die quick”
“All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity.”
“I am so sick of the blacks using every excuse in the book to loot and riot.”
“I support officer Wilson and he did a great job removing an unnecessary thing from the public!”
In contrast, a GoFundMe account was set up for Michael Brown’s memorial fund, which has brought in $136,790.
A few comments left:
“All my love goes out to the family”
“RIP Mike Brown. Never forgotten. Your life matters.”
“My thoughts are with Michael Brown’s family, I hope you find peace and justice.”
“God bless your family. Stay strong and continue to fight for justice.”
“I hope this money will help find justice for mike brown, sorry it’s so little, it’s all i can give.”
“Your child is my child.”
“Given in the hopes that justice can be found, and if not justice, then in hopes that the family may find peace.”
The donor who called Michael Brown an “unnecessary thing” is probably “pro-life,” too.
