MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Michael Brown’s family and their attorney, Benjamin Crump, sat down with “CBS This Morning” to talk about the Grand Jury’s decision and they said the question they still want answered is “Why?”READ MORE: Connecticut Man Found Guilty Of Sex Trafficking Women During 2020 Super Bowl In Miami
They don’t believe there has been a clear answer, even after hearing from Officer Darren Wilson in a televised.
“We couldn’t even have my sons organs donated. You understand that? They wrong. They know they wrong,” said Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden.
McSpadden was emotional as she talked about her son’s body being left lying in the street for hours after his death.
Brown’s parents are also upset about the Grand Jury’s decision not to bring charges against Wilson.
In an interview with ABC’s George Stephenopolous, Wilson described firing at Brown after a foot chase and an initial altercation.
“I said, ‘get back or I’m gonna shoot you.’ And then his response, immediately, he grabbed the top of my gun. He said, ‘you’re too much of a xxxxx to shoot me.’ And while he’s doing that I can feel his hand coming over my hand and try to get inside the trigger guard and try and shoot me with my own gun. And that’s when I pulled the trigger for the first time,” said Wilson.
Brown’s mother responded to Wilson’s account, saying she knew her son and he would never do anything like that.READ MORE: Miami-Dade Approves COVID-19 Sick Leave For County Employees
“He would never provoke anyone. I don’t believe any of it,” McSpadden said.
Wilson said he would have reacted the same way if Brown were white.
“The reason I have a clean conscience is that I know I did my job right,” said Wilson.
McSpadden said any person should feel some level of remorse.
“How can your conscious be clear after killing somebody? Even if its accidental,” said McSpadden.
McSpadden said she does not regret joining protesters on the streets of Ferguson. But, both she and Brown’s father, Michael Brown Sr., hope the rioting and violence stops.
“We continue to ask for calm and protest in a peaceful manner,” said Brown Sr.MORE NEWS: Florida Jobless Rate Dips As Return To Work Remains Sluggish
