Anxieties in the tiny city of Ferguson are reaching a boiling point as the entire country awaits a grand jury decision in the murdering of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by Officer Darrel Wilson. With each passing day indicating that Darren Wilson won’t be held accountable for the murder of Brown, we’re left to examine a series of Easter eggs to analyze. Seriously, Ferguson Grand Jury–just let us know that it’s totally cool for police to shoot unarmed kids and we’ll continue believing that we don’t actually live in a police state.
The latest Easter egg to come out of the drama in Ferguson comes from Anon Cop Watch. They posted a photo on twitter last night showing what appeared to be Wilson’s girlfriend and fellow officer, Barbara Spradling, working crowd control last night in Ferguson. Seems perfectly logical.
It does look an awful lot like her, but there must be tons of blonde police officers in the small town of Ferguson. It must be like the Fox News of the police force.
Since the photo does look very much like Spradling and given the unusual circumstances, Anon Cop Watch wanted to make sure. To that end, they had @CassandraRules of the Free Thought Project reach out to the Ferguson Police Dept. According to Anon Cop Watch, St Louis County Police claimed that Officer Spradling was not actually working last night when the photo was taken.
Given the fact that St. Louis County Police has been less than forthright in the past, this could very well just be them covering. Obviously both sides are as anxious as a kid on Christmas Eve, only the present they’re about to open could be a bomb about to blow up in their face.
