Due to Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager, missing court appearances after gong into hiding, a half of dozen felony cases are to be dismissed, or have been already.

[su_center_ad]The Associated Press reports:

A review by county prosecutors of drug arrests involving the Ferguson police officer who killed an unarmed, black 18-year-old in a separate incident has led to the dismissal of a half-dozen felony cases.

A spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said Tuesday that six felony drug cases involving Officer Darren Wilson won’t be prosecuted, primarily because Wilson missed several court appearances after going into hiding following Michael Brown’s early August death.

The dropped cases include a felony marijuana possession charge against 28-year-old Christopher A. Brooks that was thrown out on Monday after a judge had agreed to put the case on hold when Wilson missed a late September preliminary hearing.

For his role in that arrest, Wilson previously received a Ferguson City Council commendation. [su_csky_ad]

    Good. Drop all pot cases

    And don’t tell me it’s because he fears for his safety. If they can bring witnesses in to testify in high profile criminal cases, this scaredy cat can show up for his damn court cases.

    It is time to decriminalize pot and offer 3 month to 24 month rehab for drug addicts instead of jail time

      “It is time to decriminalize pot”
      We can’t. It makes you gay.

        that is funny

      • crc3 October 29th, 2014 at 9:08 am

        My wife will not be pleased that she’s been married to a “gay” man for over 30 years…LOL

        • William October 29th, 2014 at 10:06 am

          repent sinner

        • Kyle House October 29th, 2014 at 5:04 pm

          At least it sounds like she is married to a happy man there! And for those who do not understand the reference, the word “gay” meant “happy” originally in the English language.

    • greenfloyd October 28th, 2014 at 11:38 pm

      Okay… however what if the “addict” says, “No thanks, I’m fine, leave me alone,” then what?

      • rg9rts October 29th, 2014 at 5:23 am

        Its won’t be an option

        • greenfloyd October 29th, 2014 at 5:57 am

          If I’m not hurting anybody else, then it’s not fair or consistent with individual freedom. So would you force treatment?

          • rg9rts October 29th, 2014 at 7:56 am

            Your freedom ends where my pocketbook begins

          • greenfloyd October 29th, 2014 at 8:38 am

            So, where does your pocketbook begin? You did not answer the question I posed as the abstract representation of the “addict.” “No option,” are you implying firing squad? You are going to pay for that too, you know?

          • rg9rts October 29th, 2014 at 9:27 am

            When I have to pay for your rehab because you ceased functioning

          • greenfloyd October 29th, 2014 at 9:54 am

            So what do you say to the fully functioning “addict” who does not want your “rehab?” Seems to me you overlook the obvious “option” that would not cost you a penny; leave people alone to make their own choices. Besides it been shown forced drug treatment hardly ever works.

          • rg9rts October 29th, 2014 at 10:25 am

            NO addict is fully functional for long…don’t ever kid yourself about that no matter what they say

          • greenfloyd October 30th, 2014 at 2:14 am

            Don’t know what “business” you were in for 20 years, although you obviously do not understand the difference between the actual effects of drug use as opposed to effects of our failed drug policies. That is where most of the harm is.

          • rg9rts October 30th, 2014 at 2:25 am

            YOU don’t know you users..Case closed I won’t waste time with the ignorant on this…

          • greenfloyd October 30th, 2014 at 2:38 am

            You do not get to close the case, although you are free to concede at this point in the discussion. I don’t mean to offend you, this is apparently a sensitive issue for you. Does your “business” present a conflict of interests?

          • rg9rts October 29th, 2014 at 10:27 am

            Was in the business for 20 years

          • Robyn Ryan October 29th, 2014 at 11:19 am

            You’re not the only person in the US that pays taxes. Women pay taxes. Blacks pay taxes. Every sales transaction generates tax revenue. So get over yourself.

          • rg9rts October 29th, 2014 at 2:26 pm

            Wake up and die right…put it in the context of the thread or keep your busy body nose out of my conversation twit

          • tracey marie October 29th, 2014 at 5:38 pm

            He did not write the comment, I did. And no you ignorant twit, they may serve their time

    • Robyn Ryan October 29th, 2014 at 11:17 am

      You don’t get ‘addicted’ to weed. you’re thinking of cigarettes.

      • tracey marie October 29th, 2014 at 1:09 pm

        I did not imply that pot is addictive, I said decriminalize pot and offer assistance to DRUG addicts,

  5. Kick Frenzy October 29th, 2014 at 1:13 am

    No mention of Brooks’ claim that Wilson beat him while handcuffed?
    Seems like a worthwhile bit of trivia, no?

  6. Carla Akins October 29th, 2014 at 4:43 am

    ANd what if they weren’t simple drug cases? Chickenshit.

  7. CHOCOL8MILK October 29th, 2014 at 8:52 am

    Stupid, arresting for marijuana possession. Such a waste.

  8. Frank March 6th, 2015 at 10:00 am

    In that case it looks like his freedom is secure. Heehaaawwwww.
