Fundraising site GoFundMe’s “Support Officer Darren Wilson” and “Support Officer Wilson” pages, supporting Officer Darren Wilson, the cops embroiled in the killing of Michael Brown, have mysteriously gone dark.
The two separate pages with similar names raised $235,750 and $197,620 before shuttering the effort for yet unknown reasons.
After raising more than $430,000 for the police officer who killed an unarmed black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Mo., two online donation pages appear to have been shut down by their organizers without explanation this weekend. A similar page for Brown’s family, run by the family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump, had raised $314,099 as of Sunday afternoon. source

Mike Brown‘s parents are outraged after the untimely release of a video allegedly depicting the teen stealing cigars from a local store.
The Ferguson police chief admitted the officer who killed Brown, was unaware of the theft. The parents released a statement:
“Michael Brown’s family is beyond outraged at the devious way the police chief has chosen to disseminate piece meal information in a manner intended to assassinate the character of their son, following such a brutal assassination of his person in broad daylight,” the statement said. Police in Ferguson, Mo., said teenager Michael Brown was the “primary suspect” in an alleged convenience store robbery – police say is shown in these surveillance stills – shortly before Brown was shot by a police officer. “There is nothing based on the facts that have been placed before us that can justify the execution style murder of their child by this police officer as he held his hands up, which is the universal sign of surrender,” the statement said. source
The statement was attributed to Brown’s family and the family’s legal team, which is headed by Benjamin Crump. The statement noted that the release included stills allegedly from the store’s surveillance video showing a suspect looming over the store employee, adding that the department has declined “to release the photographs of the officer that executed him.”
