The rabbit hole of racism and skullduggery that is the Ferguson police department only gets deeper. A sergeant who was fired over a racist e-mail coincidentally was Darren Wilson’s direct supervisor. 

Reports Crooks & Liars:

In 2011, Ferguson Police Sergeant William Mudd thought it would be hilarious to send this email around to his friends from his taxpayer-funded email account while on the taxpayer’s dime:

A May 2011 email stated: “An African-American woman in New Orleans was admitted into the hospital for a pregnancy termination. Two weeks later she received a check for $5,000. She phoned the hospital to ask who it was from. The hospital said, ‘Crimestoppers.’”

Mudd was also the sergeant Darren Wilson called right after he shot Michael Brown, and was a key Grand Jury witness in Wilson’s defense.

And now, he’s fired.

Sergeant Mudd was a key witness in Wilson’s defense during the grand jury deliberations that eventually saw no charges brought against him in the murder of Mike Brown.

But the justice system isn’t rigged, right?
