Lawyers for Darren Wilson say the Ferguson policeman has no plans to apologize to the family of Michael Brown.

“Even if he gave the most heartfelt apology, they’d still not like it,” one of his lawyers, James Towey, told the Washington Post. The long-awaited announcement this week that a grand jury declined to indict Wilson in the Aug. 9 killing prompted rioting and arson around Ferguson, as well as large demonstrations across the country.

Wilson spent months in hiding following the incident, rarely going out in public and bouncing between homes to stay under the radar. When he settled on an undisclosed location, according to his lawyers, he used disguises whenever he did mundane activities like go to the movies, which they said he prefers because of the darkness.[su_center_ad]

    I am glad that the Browns are not forgiving Wilson. to forgive in this case would be a sign of weakness.

    • Republicans_are_Evil November 27th, 2014 at 9:58 pm

      To err is human, to forgive is divine. Fortunately, we are all human and we do not have to forgive murder if we don’t want to.

        Thank you! I am glad that on Thanksgiving that I received a logical reply to my post. I am human, so I have always felt that accepting someone’s apology for murdering someone in your family a sign of weakness. Besides, it isn’t up to me to forgive. That is for a higher power.

    On this Thanksgiving, I’m shocked, shocked, I tell you that sub-human known as the former Officer Wilson shows no signs of remorse or regret at having taken young Mr. Brown’s life.

    • Tommy6860 November 27th, 2014 at 9:57 pm

      He’s a complete sociopath, when seeing the emotionally devoid interview he had with George Stephanopoulos.

      • tiredoftea November 27th, 2014 at 11:01 pm

        Not to mention, lying through his teeth.

        • M D Reese November 28th, 2014 at 1:15 pm

          I hope the Civil trial goes better.

          • tiredoftea November 28th, 2014 at 3:04 pm

            It seem like they will have lots of help from the grand jury testimony.

          • M D Reese November 28th, 2014 at 3:47 pm

            I hope so. This is such a freaking mess it’s hard to tell where to start.

  3. M D Reese November 27th, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    Yeah–I can just hear the heartfelt apology that he would give.

    • FrankenPC . November 27th, 2014 at 10:11 pm

      “If only I hadn’t gone through 12 bullets. I’m sorry about that. I wish I had done the job in one”

      Wow I’m cynical.

      • M D Reese November 28th, 2014 at 1:14 pm

        Naw–you’re just a realist. We’ve seen this movie before.

  4. Tommy6860 November 27th, 2014 at 9:55 pm

    Why should he apologize, the law enforcement system we have is totally f’ed up to allow police to be lawbreakers. I mean, if you’re black and get shot by a white cop, who in the hell are you going to call?

  5. Republicans_are_Evil November 27th, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    While I do not know if Wilson is a right wingers or not, right wingers never apologize for anything they do, ever.

    • FrankenPC . November 27th, 2014 at 10:08 pm

      Authoritarianism. It’s right, even when it’s wrong.

      • fahvel November 28th, 2014 at 11:41 am

        authoritarianism is always wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. FrankenPC . November 27th, 2014 at 10:10 pm

    I’m taking a wild guess that Wilson actually believes African Americans are just animals. And he’ll take that belief to his grave.

    • Republicans_are_Evil November 27th, 2014 at 10:11 pm

      That seems to be a widely held view of many right wingers.

  7. cecilia November 27th, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    I’m glad he has to spend his life skulking around – he should spend the rest of his useless life looking over his shoulder

    and I’m NOT suggesting anyone should harm him….just that he should always be afraid. Because if that is as close as he gets to guilt, I’m satisfied with that

    • rg9rts November 28th, 2014 at 6:42 am

      He will always think that some one just like him is going to get him

  8. alpacadaddy November 28th, 2014 at 2:01 am

    Regardless of who was at fault, it is a shame and inconsistent with the tenets of his chosen profession that he not only has zero remorse, but wouldn’t even try to do anything different if he could to diffuse the situation and somehow avoid the needless loss of life. I believe his attitude now speaks volumes about his attitude then!

  9. Ron Jackson November 28th, 2014 at 3:20 am

    Why would anyone believe that a murdering racist cop, would have any remorse over the fact that he got away with murdering a young black male. He is a hero to all right wingers.

    • wesleyangun November 28th, 2014 at 12:30 pm

      He is a victim of the xenophobic leftist media and the race baiters who tried to write the story before it was completely known. As one who has been before grand juries multiple times as a witness, I can tell you it is not uncommon in cases where the prosecutor has doubts about his case that the target may be invited to testify and give his account of the events. In most cases the defense declines because they know the risk of going before a grand jury if their client is guilty. Darren Wilson welcomed the opportunity to testify. Good job, Officer. Sleep well knowing that you did the right thing under very bad circumstances and the hatred and bile of the left, anarchists and race-baiters is verification that you did the right thing.

      • StoneyCurtisll November 28th, 2014 at 12:54 pm

        When you use words you dont know the meaning of, (xenophobic), you just make yourself look even more ignorant than your insipid comments already on display.

  10. rg9rts November 28th, 2014 at 6:41 am

    He’ll get the opportunity to do so in civil court

  11. R.J. Carter November 28th, 2014 at 9:20 am

    “I’m sorry that, after Mike Brown attacked me in my car and went for my gun, he didn’t — after the first shot — immediately get on the ground and surrender. That’s how things could have gone differently, peacefully, and without loss of life.”

    • MIAtheistGal November 28th, 2014 at 9:57 am

      Oh, honey, if you believe that bullshit story, I have some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell you.

      • R.J. Carter November 28th, 2014 at 10:17 am

        It’s far more credible than a cop who just, for no reason, decides to highlight his day by shooting a black man in broad daylight without cause.

        The grand jury believed so also. And whether or not the masses (at least in Ferguson) aren’t satisfied with that, that is our justice system at work. There is no criminal case against Wilson to be made from this point forward.

        • MIAtheistGal November 28th, 2014 at 11:12 am

          I could just repeat my prior comment but that would feel like déjà vu.

          • wesleyangun November 28th, 2014 at 12:26 pm

            So you were there?

          • StoneyCurtisll November 28th, 2014 at 12:49 pm

            Whats with the rhetorical question?..
            You weren’t there either..
            So you know as much or less than anyone else, (probably less).

          • MIAtheistGal November 29th, 2014 at 11:10 am

            My thought, too. Also conspicuously absent is the same question to RJ. Or hypocritically absent, whichever he prefers.

    • StoneyCurtisll November 28th, 2014 at 12:37 pm

      Respect My Authoraitah~!

    • StoneyCurtisll November 28th, 2014 at 12:57 pm

      If only Wilson carried a disposable weapon and sprinkled some crack on Browns body..
      There would have been no grand jury at all..
