WHITE policeman, Darren Wilson, has resigned from the police force after shooting dead an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson on August 9.
The Bulletin reports, Wilson left the force citing fears for the safety of local residents and fellow police officers.
Wilson wrote in a letter published by local media, “It was my hope to continue in police work, but the safety of other police officers and the community are of paramount importance to me, it is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal.”

After a decision made by a grand jury on Monday not to charge Wilson in regards to the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, violent riots broke loose across the United States.
The resignation of Wilson has since not deterred angry protestors who continue to demand justice.
