Former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson emerged (or crawled from under a rock) this weekend at a Trivia-night fundraiser for Hunt For Justice, a local pro-police group that tellingly raises money through “gun raffles.” There are some reports that the event was a fundraiser for Wilson himself.
Wilson is the former Ferguson police officer who shot and killed unarmed teenager Mike Brown last summer. Wilson was not indicted for Brown’s death, sparking protests that have continued in Ferguson to this day, as well as a Department of Justice investigation that exposed rampant racism in the Ferguson police and court systems.

News of the Wilson appearance broke on Monday after a Hunt for Justice Facebook post made social media rounds. “Thank you Darren Wilson for being our guest and speaking to the HFJ Trivia crowd. You inspired the crowd and we are truly grateful! It was an honor to stand with you and we look forward to the future!” read the caption.
The entire Facebook page has been since been made private.
But prior to the change, the Facebook description on the Hunt For Justice page says the org defends and protects law endormcement officers against “very real, evil people who desire to falsely claim and charge law enforcement officers while in the process of perfoming their jobs.”
Hunt For Justice is a non-profit entity comprised of volunteers who are motivated to defend and protect law enforcement officers across this great country that selflessly serve all of us day in and day out for undervalued wages. Despite their devotion and work to protect us, unfortunately, there are very real, evil people who desire to falsely claim and charge law enforcement officers while in the process of performing their jobs.
We are a group that spends countless hours doing research and are involved in the trenches providing help with public relations, marketing, and fundraising to provide an appropriate intrinsic value to the wrongfully accused.
