FERGUSON, Missouri (CNN) — Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed teenager Michael Brown on August 9, is in the final stages of negotiations with city officials to resign, according to people close to the talks.

Wilson maintains he hasn’t done anything wrong, and the resignation talks have hinged on whether a grand jury returns an indictment against him in the death of Brown, people close to the talks said.

Wilson has told associates he would resign as a way to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers. Wilson has expressed concern about resigning while the grand jury was hearing evidence for fear it would appear he was admitting fault.

Wilson could announce as soon as Friday his plans to resign, the same day a St. Louis County grand jury meets to deliberate and possibly decide on an indictment.

The talks could still collapse, these people said. Wilson doesn’t know what the grand jury will do and if they return charges he could change his mind.

    They need to quit using that cute little picture of Michael Brown. They need to use a much more current picture of him.

      Your right Jim, why not a snap shot of the strong arm robbery minutes before his demise?? A tired out media trick worn out during the Trevon skittles and tea scam.

    Or in other words, the grand jury found no wrongdoing on the part of the officer. Had he been found criminally responsible for the death of the gentle giant he would be fired. I doubt the liberal media will ever report the true facts of the investigation because they are only interested in the civil disobedience they will be responsible for causing by reporting half truths. If any media personality is maimed, disfigured, disabled or killed reporting the pending violence, they deserve it. I hope whites stand their ground and protect their lives and property. If the roles were reversed, I would have no problem with African Americans doing the same.

    And to think their President’s propagandized mandate for an “Investigation into Justice for Brown” has been
    Dissed by his own FBI and DO-Injustice’s Just for Us Mighty Forces.
    How could that happen at such an Explosive Time on such a staged, rehearsed, and choreographed
    Hot Button Democratic Production?
    Has it been “Lerner Lost” on purpose, too, again? Where’s The Feds Ferguson Folks?
    LEFT ya’ll to Stand Alone, again, to fight their War for them? You’ll be BLAMED.
