‘Missouri officer, Wilson, resigned without severance’

The white police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, this summer, got no severance deal when he resigned from the force, the mayor of the St. Louis suburb said on Sunday. The officer, Darren Wilson, announced his resignation Saturday, saying he feared for his own safety and that of his fellow police officers after a grand jury decided not to indict him. “There will be no severance or extension of benefits for Darren Wilson following his resignation,” Mayor James Knowles said. Knowles outlined new incentives to bring more African-Americans into the Ferguson police force.
