Two days ago, the Ferguson grand jury made its decision. Yesterday, Officer Wilson spoke out in an interview about shooting Michael Brown. Now, Brown's parents are responding to all of it in a conversation with CNN Legal Analyst Sunny Hostin, along with their attorney Benjamin Crump. Here is just some of what Leslie McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. had to say:
Michael Brown Sr. questioned Darren Wilson's testimony:
"I don't believe any of those words were exchanged at all."
Leslie McSpadden responded to the surveillance video of their son just before the shooting:
"You cannot judge him from an 18 second video. We've known him for 18 years."
Michael Brown Sr. addressed the violence in Ferguson:
"The ones looting and rioting they are doing it on their own agenda."
Leslie McSpadden defended her husband after his tirade following the grand jury's decision:
"Emotions were taking over him... He was speaking out in anger."
Michael Brown's parents say the parents of Trayvon Martin reached out to them shortly after the shooting. Michael Brown Sr. says he received advice from Martin, along with other men who lost sons telling him to "stay positive and to keep my head, keep my chin high." John Berman spoke with Trayvon Martin's father Tracy.
