After issuing a statement about the grand jury’s decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson for their son Mike Brown’s killing, his parents Lesley McSpadden and Mike Brown, Sr., appeared on CBS This Morning to discuss the heartbreaking decision.
When asked if they believed Wilson’s account of the incident where he named Brown as the aggressor in the altercation, McSpadden quickly shot down that accusation saying she “didn’t believe a word of it.”
“I knew my son far to well. He would never do anything like that. He would never provoke anyone to do anything to him. He wouldn’t do anything to anybody.”
Emotions ran high when the discussion shifted towards Wilson’s statements during his first televised interview where he said he had a “clear conscience” and would do it again.
“He didn’t do what he had to do,” McSpadden said. “He did what he wanted to do…I don’t think he wanted to kill my son but he wanted to kill someone…How could your conscience be clear after killing somebody even if it was an accidental death?”
McSpadden and Brown, Sr. also said that no Ferguson officials or representatives have come to them and given them any condolences.
‘We just been disrespected all the way around,” Brown Sr. said.
