Michael Brown's mom, Lesley McSpadden, feels Darren Wilson "wanted to kill someone." McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. sat down for an interview to talk about the Ferguson decision with CBS News earlier this morning.
Lesley McSpadden said, "I don't think he wanted to kill my son, but he wanted to kill someone," when asked what she thought about Darren Wilson's comments to George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, yesterday. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the Ferguson police officer said that his "conscience was clear" in relation to the Mike Brown shooting. Officer Wilson also told Stephanopoulos that race was not a factor in the fatal police shooting and that he does not think he could have done anything differently in order to prevent the death of Michael Brown.
Michael Brown's mom asked, "He says his conscience is clear? How can your conscience be clear after killing somebody?" Both Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. once again called for calm and non-violent protests of the Ferguson decision. The St. Louis suburb erupted into flames on Monday evening after the Darren Wilson decision was announced to the public.
A video of McSpadden's husband and Mike Brown's stepfather, Louis Head surfaced yesterday and quickly went viral. The footage of the Louis Head and McSpadden show their reaction after the Ferguson decision was read. Head shouted multiple times, "Burn this b***h down" shortly before the riots, looting, and the burning of about two dozen businesses began. Backlash and claims of inciting rioting and destruction were quickly levied against Michael Brown's stepfather.
The Brown family attorney, Benjamin Crump, accompanied Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. during the CBS News interview. As previously noted by the Inquistir, McSpadden was questioned by police after a physical altercation between her and Mike Brown's grandmother, and a group of supporters, occurred over the selling of Ferguson shooting T-shirts. The incident happened just before McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. traveled to the United Nations in Geneva to discuss peace and torture issues.
Mike Brown's mom broke into tears when she relayed that she could not donate her son's organs following his death. "I don't believe a word of it, I know my son too well, he wouldn't provoke anyone like that," Lesley McSpadden told CBS News when asked to elaborate on Darren Wilson's comments about the Michael Brown shooting. We want change. We don't accept our son in gone, but we're dealing with it. We want change all over," Michael Brown Sr. added.
