Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot and killed unarmed black 18-year-old Mike Brown, will leave the Ferguson police force. "It's not a question of if, it's a question of when," said Wilson's attorney, Neil Bruntrager.
In a CNN interview, the attorney said that Wilson, who claims his conscience is clear over the killing, simply cannot go back to police work given the public outrage.
"The first day he would be back on the street something terrible would happen to him or to someone that would be working with him," said Bruntrager on CNN.
The same lawyer joked to reporters that Wilson has resorted to being a transvestite to hide his identity. So funny, this lawyer!
"He's had to learn to live in a way that makes him completely unnoticeable. As a consequence, there are several techniques that he utilizes that make that happen," Bruntrager said without elaborating. "It's an odd way to live your life. But for him, it's all about his family."
Except for his getting married last month, Bruntrager told The Washington Post on Wednesday that Wilson mostly stayed out of the public eye.
Wilson preferred going to the movies because it was dark, Bruntrager told the paper, jokingly saying that the officer "cross-dressed a lot."
