In a brilliant move, St. Louis alternative newspaper Riverfront Times responds to the Post-Dispatch: Riverfront Times Seeks Juvenile Records for Officer Darren Wilson.
In response to a number of inquiries today, the Riverfront Times confirms that it is seeking the juvenile records of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, the man who shot and killed Michael Brown.
After the Post-Dispatch announced Friday that it is seeking the juvenile records for Brown, many people on Twitter asked that the same scrutiny be placed upon Wilson, who is currently under investigation for the shooting death of the unarmed 18-year-old man.

@RiverfrontTimes Great turnabout on the juvenile records request - but are you seriously doing this or just snarking at the Post-Dispatch?
@Green_Footballs Compare the two articles. There's your answer. ;)
