On February 11 of this year, Officer Darren Wilson, 28, received a commendation for his “Outstanding Police Work,” during a ceremony at Ferguson’s City Hall. We knew that. And now, we know why he received it, as well.
As it turns out, Wilson appears to have a habit of dragging suspects into his car — like he tried to do with Michael Brown before murdering him — where he then overpowers them.
The Daily Mail reports that months before the fateful shooting, Wilson was awarded a commendation for… overpowering a suspect during a struggle in his car.
The video of the City Council meeting shows Chief Thomas Jackson calling Officer Wilson forward, praising Wilson for his “outstanding police work while investigating a suspicious vehicle call out.”
The Chief said described the situation:
Acting alone you struggled with one subject and were able to gain control of the subject and his car keys until assistance arrived.
The Mail reports that the exact details of the incident aren’t yet public information. Months later, Office Wilson would cross paths with Michael Brown, claiming that he scuffled with Brown in his police patrol car before shooting Brown at least six times on the street.
Others, however, have suggested a different set of events.
A grand jury was slated to hear evidence on the case beginning Sunday. Wilson has remained out of the public eye and on administrative leave since the shooting transpired. He is reported hiding under 24 hour protection, and in texts seen by the MailOnline, thanked everyone for supporting him through what he described as a “stressful time.” He added that the lives of his whole family, including his children, were under threat.
Wilson receives his commendation.
