Michael Brown's parents—Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown, Sr.—were on the Today show this morning, where they responded to Ferguson, Mo. police officer Darren Wilson's public comments following a grand jury's decision not to indict him for the killing of their son.
In an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos last night, Wilson stuck to his narrative: that he was doing his job, that Michael Brown made him fear for his life, and that he just wants to move on. "I don't think it's a haunting, it's just something that happened," Wilson said.
Michael Brown Sr. responded to Wilson's description of his son, telling Today's Savannah Guthrie, "For one, my son, he respected law enforcement. Two, who in their right mind would rush or charge at a police officer that has his gun drawn? It sounds crazy."
The family's lawyer, Benjamin Crump, has said they intend to explore a civil or federal suit. "We're just going to keep fighting and pray for a better outcome,'' Michael Brown Sr. said.
