We've never met, though were we to brush against one another in a crowded store or pass one another one the street, I'm quite positive we'd smile at one and instinctively nod a sign of respect to each other.
From the moment you pulled your SUV slowly up to the jaywalking Michael Brown and Dorian Johnson to right now, you've unwittingly become a pariah to a world you probably never knew existed.
The intense hatred and scorn directed your way for an incident most supporters of Michael Brown reflexively believe to have been nothing more than you executing an innocent black male (whose hands were up...) is largely due to the media, the Obama Administration, and the Department of Justice deciding your fate was sealed the moment his lifeless body fell on Canfield Drive.
You've been the subject of a Star Chamber, sentenced in the court of public opinion before any evidence could be presented to absolve you from the guilt of Brown's death; in fact, if a video of the altercation existed showing Brown to assault you, go for your gun, then charge at you after you told him to remain still, well, even this bit of visual evidence would be considered a distortion of reality by his out-for-your-blood followers.
But I stand by you, Darren Wilson.
The Washington Post sent nine reporters to locate some shred of proof you had uttered something racial in the past to prove you had prejudicial thoughts when you pulled your SUV up to Wilson and Johnson.
They dug up nothing.
The city you served has become a war zone, with the already depreciating property values prior to your altercation with Brown drifting closer to a scenario when home owners simply must walk away from their completely capsized mortgages.
Boarded up businesses on West Florissant are a reminder the owners of these stores are aware those marching for Michael Brown aren't peaceful, but a bellicose group of mendacious individuals clinging to a delusional belief you represent all that is wrong with society.
Boarded up businesses throughout Clayton, downtown St. Louis and other communities of Greater St. Louis are a reminder of how deep the lies of your guilt have been willingly consumed by the black community, and the fears the owners of these stores have when the black mob/rioters are loosened by the grand jury's decision to not to charge you with anything.
But I stand by you, Darren Wilson, just as others on the police force you proudly served donned (to the Department of Justice's immediate disapproval) "I am Darren Wilson" bracelets. Mind you, a DOJ that plays by its own set of rules in Ferguson...
I stand by you, against those who stood outside the Ferguson Police Department on November 20th shouting, “What do we want? Darren Wilson! How do we want him? Dead!”
Though you and fellow police officers in metropolitan can't force white people to commit crime, the Department of Justice mandated "impartial police training" classes after your altercation with Brown, so police can have, "enhance ... understanding of how bias — including implicit or unconscious bias — affects officer behavior, and the impact that biased policing has on officers and the community."
The statistics culled from police arrests in the city of St. Louis showcase why an officer, such as yourself, might take notice of black males walking in the middle of the street.
The City of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, releases an Annual Report to the Community. This report breaks down violent crime and the overall percentage of the racial group arrested for each offense.

Anything different in 2008? No:
2009? Is it still almost all-black? Yes:
Please, tell me 2010 is different...:
2011? Same old song:
According to 2012 Metropolitan Police Department, City of St. Louis: Annual Report to the Community:
Remember, out of 318,000 people, St. Louis is 49.2 percent black 43.9 percent white (as of 2010 US Census). And guess what? Another one of those crimes City of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department tracks by race for is weapons arrests.
2002 - 844 total Weapons arrests
2004 - 655 total Weapons arrests
2005 - 711 total Weapons arrests
2006 - 496 total Weapons arrests
2007 - 648 total Weapons arrests
2008 - 753 total Weapons arrests
2009 - 844 total Weapons arrests
black: 89.1 %
2010 - 821 total Weapons arrests
2011 - 857 total Weapons arrests
But why bring any of this data up? Ferguson is 15 miles away from downtown St. louis, right?
Well, thanks to the joy of Section 8 Vouchers, the population responsible with making St. Louis one of America's most dangerous cities has found a new home in Ferguson.
|I stand with Darren Wilson: as do tens of thousands of people in metropolitan St. Louis; hundreds of thousands in Missouri; and millions around America.|
Mr. Wilson, where you aware of the racial history of Ferguson? Let me elaborate:
Highlights from today’s presser:
** Police will allow protest mob “to occupy larger and more disruptive spaces than would normally be tolerated.”
** Safe houses will be considered “sacred ground.”
** Excessive force and other forms of “police misconduct” will not be tolerated.
** Intimidation and harassment “of protesters” will not be tolerated.
A group of black protesters holding weapons put together a video this week threatening to kill “mother-f*ckers” if Officer Wilson is not indicted.
It’s hard to understand but at one point they say, “Niggas aint out here playin no more.” And, “We gonna bring it to your front door.”
The men display several guns in the video.
