Michael Brown’s parents are expressing their frustration after Officer Darren Wilson spoke out about having a “clear conscience” following a grand jury decision not to charge Wilson for the Aug. 9 shooting of their son.
Wilson spoke to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday, saying, “I know I did my job right.” In the interview, Wilson said he feared for his life as he tried to defend himself against the 18-year-old, who was allegedly throwing punches at him while Wilson was inside his police vehicle.
The altercation then shifted outside the vehicle, where Wilson said Brown charged at him after initially running away. That’s when the fatal shots were fired. Witness accounts heard by the grand jury differed.
