African-American Lawyers Association Seeks Revocation of Darren Wilson’s Police Officer License

Paul Hampel, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, December 8, 2014

The National Bar Association, led by an attorney for Michael Brown’s family, says it has filed a “lawsuit” with the Missouri Department of Public Safety, demanding the revocation of Darren Wilson’s police officer license.

The department acknowledged receiving a document but said it is being treated as a complaint because the agency is not a venue for a suit. Spokesman Mike O’Connell said he could not reveal specifics.

{snip} Wilson resigned from the force Nov. 29, five days after a St. Louis County grand jury decided not to indict him in Brown’s death.

Neil Bruntrager, a lawyer for Wilson, said being a police officer “is off the table forever” but that, “Keeping his license in good standing is a matter of pride.” Bruntrager added, “He didn’t resign under any criminal charges and he didn’t do anything wrong.”

The association, which says it represents African-American lawyers and judges, is headed by Benjamin Crump, who represents Brown’s family. Its press release alleges that Wilson “committed a criminal act.”

The release also says Wilson’s comment in a TV interview that Brown had “looked like a demon” led the association to “challenge his suitability to ever wear a badge and carry a gun ever again.”

    He’s been acquitted of wrong doing so they can’t do that even if they don’t like that decision.

    • connorhus

      Looks to me like they are going to try to get it revoked by claiming racism when he said that Brown looked like a demon. So it will be treated like a totally different charge.

      • Alexandra1973

        How is that racism?

        I’ve heard of accounts of people who were so angry they looked demonic. And not just blacks.

        • thomasdosborneii

          Besides, the boy clearly was demonic.

        • connorhus

          Well I certainly don’t think it is racism but from the article and another here in the local paper it appears that is the angle they are taking.

      • shawnmer

        There is literally NO adjective he could have used they would not try to portray as “racist.” That’s simply the game they play.

        Officer Stacy Koon in the Rodney King case was accused of “racist” language by calling King “hulking.”

        • connorhus

          Exactly the same tactic they are taking int his case.

        • John Smith

          Anything you say they dislike is “racist.” It works for white liberals too, to a somewhat lesser extent.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      The Grand Jury failed to indict Officer Wilson – he was never brought to trial and is therefore not subjected to Double Jeopardy. The DA could reopen the case in the future and take the case to trial.

      I suspect they’ll try to bring him up on Civil Right violations instead.

      • dd121

        I always thought the “violating your civil rights” laws WAS double jeopardy, but the courts haven’t ruled that way.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          After being found “not guilty” of knifing to death two Whites, OJ Simpson was brought up on charges of wrongful death in a civil trial -which in no way violated Double Jeopardy. He was found liable in that case to the tune of $33.5 million.

          In February 1999, an auction of Simpson’s Heisman Trophy and other belongings netted almost $500,000. The money went to the Goldman family.

          Fred Goldman often speaks on local radio here in SoCal and frequently says he’ll go to his grave hounding OJ after what he did to his son, Ron.

          Can’t say I’d behave any different if it were my son.

          • dd121

            The difference is that one was a criminal trial the other civil.

    • A Freespeechzone

      But, they are negroes…..facts NEVER count; even when it comes to dealing with ‘so-called’ educated negroes.

      Unless they get a mob-rule loving judge, NOTHING will happen.

      • Augustus3709

        They think in a more tribal, primitive way.

        I just saw a clip a couple days ago of a black conference on the shooting of the boy with the toy gun.

        The black speaker said to the black major who was being interviewed:

        “…we look to you, you know, you are our king…”

        There was no irony in his statement. That is literally how they see it. In general they are simply not compatible with western democracy.

        • We got rid of kings here in 1776 and Presidents-For-Life after FDR died and with the 22nd Amendment.

        • benvad

          All because of cotton and John Wilkes Booth?

          • Lkoehn

            We should have not been so lazy and picked our own cotton.

        • Rick O’Shea

          In fairness, he said “heavy is the head that wears the crown” and he was a preacher so he was just trying to sound intelligent and Biblical.

          But yes, the basic message was “Mr. Mayor, we’re black, you’re black… please put your racial allegiance first and give us purely emotional, legally unsound reaction to this situation and act in a completely unprofessional way so that we feel better.”

          • Augustus3709

            Of course. The black agenda is the same as the feminist agenda, the same as the La Raza agenda etc.

            They want to take our homeland and resources away from us.

            Psychological Warfare to break the spirit of White people is priority #1.

  • [Guest]

    >>>“He didn’t resign under any criminal charges and he didn’t do anything wrong.”

    What does that have to do with anything? He’s white and therefore must suffer a reputation and career lynching.

    • Charles Martel

      That’s what they think is “justice”.

  • The state DPS is an executive level agency, not part of the judicial branch. You’d think a bunch of lawyers would know that, but these are affirmative action black lawyers, so they probably don’t.

    Incidentally, as a response to the Ferguson hoopla back in August, Governor Useless put one Dan Isom (black), former SLPD Chief, at the head of the state DPS. Except that means he runs highway patrol, water patrol, conservation agents, state liquor agents — Urban/suburban ghetto blacks hardly have any contact with these agencies.

  • dukem1

    I’d sue for libel. It’s a tough nut to crack, but regardless of ones reading of the events that day, the one thing the grand jury decided was that a criminal act was not committed by Wison

    • shawnmer

      It’s more of a case than they have, for sure!

      Grand jury: “There’s not enough evidence to meet the very low bar of indictment. ”

      The “African American Lawyers Association”: “He’s clearly guilty of a ‘criminal act!'”

  • DD-762

    While they’re at, they should revoke Al Sharpton’s Reverend License.

    • Steve_in_Vermont

      Al was “ordained” at age 10 (or was it 11) so it’s obvious he’s right up there with other “Reverends” who earned their degrees in seminaries.

    • LexiconD1

      Al notsoSharpton didn’t even graduate from college. He has no degree, or credentials. He’s not a real ‘reverend’ at all.

    • John Smith

      His mom’s shoplifting being dredged up is supposed to make Wilson look bad, yet the MSM ignored Brown knocking over the C-store just before he got what he deserved. Very interesting.

  • superlloyd

    Incompetent, vindictive, one issue idiots. The African American Lawyers association. Was not Crump involved with Trayvon Martin as well? He seems particularly useless,

    • shawnmer

      He is. At least Johnnie Cochran could boast that he usually won! Crump is a two-time, high profile loser and he’s in the most demand by blacks as anyone in the country, from what I can tell.

  • Jeff Traube

    Appoint him Commissioner or Police Chief.

  • Yves Vannes

    Let’s give every member of the black bar association the bar exam and let’s make the results public. But let’s give them an exam from 1960. Let’s let them take it as often as they’d like and let’s publish their answers. If they don’t pass after 5 tries they lose their licence.

  • DonReynolds

    Since when does the black lawyers association need to approve licenses for police officers? Are they insane?

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    Great. Just what the black community needs right now, another self serving group driving a wedge between blacks and whites. As if Al Sharpton and company wasn’t enough. It’s interesting the American Bar Association has never taken a stand on these issues.

  • MartelsGhost

    Are these fools kidding? Affirmative action community college hires who finally passed a correspondence test administered out of an online college run from a bolivian trailer park outhouse want to tell us who’s allowed to be a police officer?

    14 words come to mind…………………………

  • I want the driver’s licences of these black lawyers revoked, even the ones who don’t have any tickets. Why not? It’s the same thing.

  • TheCogitator

    This is what happens when we let low IQ people come into our society and pretend that they belong.

    • benvad

      That is so profound.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    “National Bar Association, an organization representing black lawyers and judges…”

    A racist organization that has already tried and convicted Officer Wilson based on the color of his skin.

    They’re defending and demanding the right of black thugs to murder White police officers.

    Handout to Berkeley’s Protesters: “A Call for Non-Black People to Stop Policing Black Resistance”

    It says black “comrades” are policed, enslaved and imprisoned and are “attempting to fight for their liberation.”

    —their “liberation” to kill White cops who try to stop them from committing crimes.

    • benvad

      Don’t commit crimes & disturb the peace, then you won’t get shot.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Typical of ignorant negro lawyers—but, then again, they don’t believe in the rule of law, unless it’s advancing their anti-police, anti-White agenda.

    Even ‘so-called’ educated negroes show their hate for the ‘rule of law’.

  • Katherine McChesney

    After watching his behavior in the convenience store and hearing about his attack on Wilson makes me believe that Brown was possessed by a demon.

  • Another proof that trying to reason with blacks over this incident is in almost every case impossible. The facts don’t matter. The forensics don’t matter. The grand jury’s decision doesn’t matter. Nothing matters except maintaining the ‘narrative’ and making the officer who justifiably dispatched the ‘gentile giant’ to that great welfare office in the sky pay for the rest of his life.

    I hope he sues them for whatever he can in their efforts to deprive him of employment.

    These racial agitators are not looking for justice, they’re looking for blood.

  • White police officers take note. If you dare to harm one of ‘diversity’s’ cherished pets, you’re going to pay. Even if you’re in the right, they’ll find a thousand ways to make you pay – and it won’t end once your own agency finds you innocent or cleared of wrong-doing. No, they’ll hound you for the rest of your life and do all within their power to take away your means to support yourself and your family.

    Welcome to ‘post-racial’ Amerika!

  • Fr. John+

    When even those so-called ‘students of law’ can only think in Racist, Black supremacist terms, clearly, they do not belong in this land… or any white, civilized land. They are operational barbarians, and Ferguson is merely the latest corroboration of that fact. No wonder why the Egyptians used them for slaves. Sorry, but I’m done with any fantasy that they are either our equals, or ‘just like us.’ MLK’s ‘the content of their character’ has been tried… and clearly, found wanting.

    • Michigan Patriot

      Amen !

  • Setting aside that I have never heard of this type of cockamamie “lawsuit,” reminds me of someone witnessing students at a Black law school after the O.J. Simpson verdict “running through the halls celebrating as if they were drunk.” Obviously facts are always irrelevant in the endless war on whitey.

  • See The Future

    Just another black racist group stirring the pot. They are showing themselves to be of low intelligence. A black racist group with intelligence would chastise the black community for their failure to maintain an orderly family structure, control their children, teach values, teach community service, etc etc……………but whether a black lawyer or a black cotton picker………..the story is the same………….you can take the African out of Africa but you cannot take Africa out of the African.

  • John Smith

    They’d be crying “racism” if whites were trying to get a black officer punished beyond what is provided for within the structure of the law.

  • johningermany

    His parents should be so ashamed they wouldn’t show their faces in public. It was totally the fault of their stupid sub-human spawn. But no, they want to twist the story until they somehow become the victim. What we have here is a perfect case for segregation. I can’t stand these people.

  • That investigation be racist!

  • Harvey42

    Why would anyone care what “people” so bereft of reason have to say. The officer should have said “He looked like a gorilla”. That would have put the esteemed lawyers knickers in a knot.

  • benvad

    They want to harass him to show that they have power.

  • Lkoehn

    That is mystifying why black lawyers do not understand a grand jury decision that says no crime was committed.

  • Vito Powers

    I always thought that punching a cop in the face was considered assault. Am I dating myself? In today’s Brave New Negro World, white cops are automatically the aggressors.

  • Paleoconn

    When these black lawyers were called to the bar, I wonder if they expected Thunderbird.
