Amid the chaos in Ferguson, there are plenty of people who have come out in support of Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown more than a week ago. There’s a Facebook group called “Support Darren Wilson” that had more than 14,000 likes by Sunday, August 17. These supporters are rallying around what they believe is an injustice done to WIlson: “This page only for Support of Officer Darren Wilson! He was doing his job! To protect and serve! no trash here you will be banned!”

Supporters also rallied outside of KSDK, St. Louis’ local news station. T-shirts baring the message “Officer Darren Wilson — I stand by you” were on sale for $7 and reportedly sold out.
