Support is growing for the officer who shot an 18-year-old black man in Ferguson, Missouri,with several Facebook pages and an online fundraising campaign for his legal defense raising $40,000 in just 48 hours.
As more facts have emerged in the case over the past couple of days, Officer Darren Wilson is finding more people in his corner, supporting his decision to fire on Michael Brown, a 6-foot-4 teenager who weighed over 300 pounds but was unarmed at the time of the shooting.
Wilson’s supporters have established a fundraising page on his behalf at GoFundMe.com. But that page is not easy to find. That’s because the website’s search engine does not produce results for Wilson’s campaign, like it does for a similar fundraising page for Brown’s family.
