Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed teenager Michael Brown on August 9, is in the final stages of negotiations with city officials to resign, according to people close to the talks.

Wilson maintains he hasn't done anything wrong, and the resignation talks have hinged on whether a grand jury returns an indictment against him in the death of Brown, people close to the talks said.

Wilson has told associates he would resign as a way to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers. Wilson has expressed concern about resigning while the grand jury was hearing evidence for fear it would appear he was admitting fault.

cnn

CNN is reporting that when the Grand Jury makes its decision on Friday that Darren Wilson would resign his duties as a Ferguson police officer. His act is to protect fellow officers and the community. His decision to wait till the grand jury makes its announcement is so he doesn't show himself as guilty, so he is waiting to resign after the jury publicly announces on Friday.

CNN is reporting this and the other story about the police chief resigning Ferguson police chief expected to step down perhaps if there is no decision to prosecute and I doubt there will be, these steps will be taken to lessen the public outcry.

And in a few months they will just be working as LEOs but else ware.

Some one will give them a job, no worries.

Probably some financial incentives as well, secret ones of course.

If true....then good....if he won't be prosecuted like anyone else that shoots and kills another human being.

Screw the grand jury...bring him up on charges in a normal court. Sick and tired of cops hiding behing the reasoning that "I had probable cause to shoot and kill" without having to answer to anyone.

Sick of it! Done with that

I assume he will be a rich man either way it goes, the kkk has been pretty successful raising a bunch of money for him. I'm sure he has more than enough to relocate and start all over.

You're probably right and hopefully, he can start his life over....just not in law enforcement.

He might as well resign,he would be a target on the street that people would be gunning for.And as far as Mike Brown's family,I hope they move into a really nice white neighborhood.Let the whites put up with all their hate and nonsense and you can see why people didn't like they're kid. Knowing people who lived next to them,yeah they had nothing nice to say about the whole family. So let them move into some bleeding hearts neighborhood and see what kind of trouble they cause there.

I'm not a Darren Wilson supporter but since 9/11 the laws have changed to protect the public service worker and the training teaches them there tactics used. He might be guilty but the law is on his side.

Wow! You really took a dive into the deep end with no lifesaver on that one . However, you're entitilted to your opinion.

I personally think he and other LEO regardless of skin color needs to be in front of a court anytime they shoot an unarmed human being.

I come from a family of LEO's my father being the head honcho and a former Green Beret...black man by the way. Never had to shoot as a LEO thank goodness. Call it luck or maybe just communication, observations, sensibility, common sense, intuition and/or wisdom taking in his situations. All know, is that sensibility and common sense especially goes a long way for most LEO's. Most of them are pretty good communicators as well.

Unfortunately, Wilson seems to have missed most of that part of training and that's my opinion.

You don't go around shooting unarmed US citizens, I don't care who you are.

That's the sad part...the law is on all LEO's side seemingly "no matter what". I'm certain many LEO's have reason to shoot to kill.

This guy on the other hand, shot an unarmed man. That's wrong IMO.

If my wife shot a 250 lb escaped convict, would it matter that he was unarmed? Unarmed people kill people all the time. Ever heard the expression "beaten to death"? I don't understand everyone getting so stuck on the "unarmed" thing. When he strong armed that store clerk did he look unarmed to you? He looked pretty dangerous to me.

He wasn't a 250 lb., escaped convict.

No...regular prosecution. No secretive grand jury.

Put him on front street. What's wrong with that?

You're right. He was a 290 lb active criminal, recently involved in a theft and a battery. He was actually leaving the scene of a crime.

You said "what if", right?

There was no what if "he was a 250 lb. escaped convict attacking your wife", was there? I was right wasn't I. Yet and still, you put that "what if" into a scenario that never existed. I wouldn't care if he was as a big as Shaq....he didn't have a gun and he was more than 25 feet away from the officer.

Keep with the facts. He stole cigars...and then got shot 25 feet at least away from a trained law enforcement officer. Period. No way around that.

Brown, didn't have a gun, Brown didn't shoot that officer. As a matter of fact, Brown didn't even have anything in his hand that would lead the officer to believe that he was going to kill him nor harm him, let alone shot him from 25 plus feet away, did he?

I wholeheartedly understand protecting LEO's, I respect them and the job they have. But taking it too far is taking it too far. Wilson took it too far. He never should have been an LEO...he's a disgrace to all the good LEOs out there.

Don't go prophesizing about what if or what may have happened! It didn't happen and an unarmed man is dead because some jackass made a universal decision to take another human beings life "without probable cause".

You can't right that partner....but a court may be able too. We'll see very soon.

I bet his ass gets indicted and convicted. I hope he does because he's an idiot and he deserves it! Should have been a paper pusher instead.

That's all I have to say about this.

Nice sharing opinions with you

nooooo he was a college student from what I heard on the news. 290 lbs and had been surviving on Ramen noodles and Cracker Jacks as he pursued his lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. "I have a dream".

Actually, his parents stated that he was going to a vocational school to be a heating and air conditioning professional.

Simple. Where did you get "doctor" from...or are you just being snarky and dishonest?

Whatever the case may be, that officer is gonna have his ass handed to him.

Karma is something else....have you never experienced it? Maybe you just didn't recognize it starring you in the face. Eventually, it catches up to all of us. Wilson is no exception.

Don't make up stories or lies though, wherever you're getting your lame info from. No one "official " for Michael Browns' family, ever said he wanted to be a doctor. Just a simple Heating and AC guy. I think his parents would know best.

Many of us will have a smile on our faces in a day or two....at least some of us will be joyous. Doubt you'll be one of them smiling though. Don't fret, I'll check back here to gather your reaction to an indictment.

Stop adding oil to an already slick road

Guess you didn't hear about Wilson resigning? Something's coming down the pipeline and it ain't good for Wilson.

I don't see how you would be ok in the same situation when a criminal goes for your gun? I'd have shot him too. The "kid" is huge and definitely overpowering to a fat cop. I also find it hard to believe after being so brazen and attacking an officer and going after his gun that this kid was just gonna put his hands up and surrender. I do agree that police are horrible and way off from the duties of just protecting and serving, but this isn't the case people should be getting behind to defend. Just like travon Martin wasn't the good little boy to defend. And yes he did go for his gun, that's been proven by the gun shot residue on his hand and the wound and blood in the car. Id be scared for my life if a huge person like that tried for my gun and came at me too. I also have a feeling they will reveal some type of narcotic in his blood.

First of all, only a court of law, will prove whether Brown went for his gun or deserved to be shoot over 6 times. But that should be decided in an open court of law...not a grand jury IMO. No secrecy when it comes to shooting an unarmed human by an LEO anywhere. Period. What if it happens to someone you love or know?

Secondly, Martin didn't reach for an LEO's gun. Zimmerman was not LEO. I'll leave it with that. Karma will catch up to Zimmerman too if he was unjust.

Listen, me and my family were just the victims of an almost home invasion in a very quiet suburb in Los Angeles County. Someone pulled a gun on my husband, held it to his head. I went to the door with a gun, decided to close the door and I called my police department. I have a best friend that's a Federal Marshall. In fact, my friend caught the guy up in Hayward, Ca. My father was a Green Beret and LEO. I could go on and on with my affection for law enforcement. I don't have a hatred of law enforcement, but when the SHTF and it's gone too far....then it's gone to freaking far. Like I said, Wilson went too far. He never should have been an LEO.

That young man posed no threat to that officer over 25 plus feet away for him to shoot and kill him and take several head shots. Those are war shots IMO. That's just how I feel and it's not hard to read. Some are fit to protect us and some are not. IMO, Wilson was not fit and never will be.

I respect your opinion, I hope that you respect mine as well.
