Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson has spoken out to ABC News for the first time publicly since fatally shooting a black teenager, Michael Brown, and he said that he would not do anything differently.
Speaking exclusively to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Wilson said that Brown reached into his police car and grabbed for his gun, causing Wilson to fear for his life.
“All I wanted to do was live,” said Wilson, who the grand jury declined to indict in connection with the fatal shooting in August. A few things are wrong with this: The wrongful timing of giving such an interview while Mike Brown’s family continues to grieve and the blatant insensitivity towards taking someone’s life. As Americans still digest what is occurring, it is important that we all extend our condolences to Mike Brown’s family and friends.
