BEHNA: When police union created “Darren Wilson Day” these liberals heads exploded on Twitter

A police union in Missouri created a “Darren Wilson Day” as yesterday was the one year anniversary since former officer Darren Wilson defended himself against Michael Brown. But a Facebook posting declaring Sunday ‘Darren Wilson Day’ in this college town brought protesters to the police station on Monday and strong criticism from city leaders.

A post on the Columbia Police Officers Association’s Facebook page, which appeared on the one-year anniversary of the fatal shooting of black teenager Michael Brown by white Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson, called Wilson “an innocent, but persecuted, officer.”

According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, about 20 protesters gathered at noon Monday in front of the Columbia Police Department headquarters at 600 East Walnut Street. City Manager Mike Matthes and police Chief Ken Burton were in attendance.

“I found the post offensive, and I thought I needed to stand with the community and say what the police department thinks about it,” Burton said at the protest. “It was insensitive at best, and provocative at worst.”
