Cop who killed Michael Brown started his career at disgraced unit that was DISBANDED over racial tensions - after officers opened fire on fleeing mother and child and beat up another woman

Darren Wilson was a rookie cop in Jennings, Missouri.

The small city had a majority of black citizens but an almost completely white police force.

The entire department was dismissed amid allegations of racial prejudice, unnecessary use of force lawsuits and corruption.

  • White people: You have to wait for the facts before you talk about Ferguson!
  • Eyewitnesses: He was on his knees with his hands up.
  • Medical examiner: There was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, no sign of struggle, and there were entry wounds on the inside of his arms and the top of his head, implying he was on his knees with his hands up.
  • Convenience store owner and clerk: There was no robbery and we didn't call the cops.
  • Ferguson PD: Okay, we admit it, Wilson didn't know anything happened at the convenience store and we determined no crime was committed.

  • White people: Nobody can say what happened! We still have to wait for the facts to come in!

There’s a moment of clarity so profound, when I’m bathing my weeping lover and holding her grief-stricken form; I cannot take this hurt from her. I cannot protect her from this cruelty.

Megan’s dad has suffered a major heart attack and we’ve been at the hospital since 1:30. He’s stable but totally sedated. The doctor said he was lucky to have even made it to the hospital. It was touch and go while they resuscitated him. They worked on him for 45 minutes at home and had to shock him 6 or 7 more times once he arrived at the hospital. They aren’t sure of the extent of damage to his brain and probably won’t know until he is woken up. He’ll be down for at least 24 hours while his heart is resting. We now play the waiting game. I have no idea if we’ll be here all night yet but we’re here for now.

This strip will appear in “Middle School Missy,” a mini I’m making for SPX.

I’m also really happy to say that I’ve been nominated for an Ignatz Award in the Promising New Talent category.  Thanks for noticing me, judges! I’m honored to be on a list with so many amazing artists.
