As the New York Times reported, 12 of the 40 officers in the Jennings force found jobs with the county police, but not Wilson. He ended up taking a job in Ferguson, where he made $45,302 a year.

By the available accounts, Wilson's time in Jennings was unremarkable. Former Jennings police chief Robert Orr told the Times that he barely remembered Wilson, noting " that must mean he never got in any trouble, because that's when they usually came to me." The man who oversaw the Jennings force transition to county control, Lt. Jeff Fuesting, gave a similar account to The Post: "My impression is he didn't go above and beyond, and he didn't get in any trouble." Fuesting went on to describe the department in which Wilson was supposed to learn how to be an officer:
"There was a disconnect between the community and the police department. There were just too many instances of police tactics which put the credibility of the police department in jeopardy. Complaints against officers. There was a communication breakdown between the police and the community. There were allegations involving use of force that raised questions."


Wow, by reading this nothing seems negative at all but in fact give a positive light to Wilson. 12 of 40 found jobs with county and Wilson found one at Ferguson. Sounds like Wilson wasn't a problem but in fact a new up coming asset for any police department that as a rookie knew enough at that early time not to get into the wrongful workings of a corrupt department.

It is surprising how the facts are askewed to appear like this police officer was intricately involved with the corrupt police force when nothing could be could be further from the truth. This thread is nothing but rhetorical lying to fit a political agenda.
