GENTLE GIANT'S FAMBLY B'Z SPEECHIFYIN'

A MASTER CLASS IN NEGRO LOGIC

CBS NEWS

Michael Brown's parents are expressing their frustration after Officer Darren Wilson spoke out about having a "clear conscience".

"His conscience is clear? How could your conscience be clear after killing somebody even if it was an accidental death?" mother Lesley McSpadden said Wednesday in an emotional interview on "CBS This Morning."

Wilson spoke to ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday, saying, "I know I did my job right." In the interview, Wilson said he feared for his life as he tried to defend himself against the 18-year-old, who was allegedly throwing punches at him while Wilson was inside his police vehicle. The altercation then shifted outside the vehicle, where Wilson said Brown charged at him after initially running away. That's when the fatal shots were fired.

Still, McSpadden said she doesn't "believe a word" of Wilson's account.

"I know my son far too well. He would never do anything like that. He would never provoke anyone to do anything to him and he would never do anything to anybody."

McSpadden said her son does not have a history of violence.

While their lawyer Benjamin Crump agreed that physical evidence is irrefutable, he still questions Wilson's story.

Brown Sr. said that Wilson is "known for falsifying his reports," though he didn't elaborate.

McSpadden said that Wilson's response to the reported robbery in the convenience store should have been handled differently.

"If something happened in that store - and that's a big if - that could have been dealt with," she said.

Despite the evidence that has since been released to the public, McSpadden said Wilson's actions were not warranted.

"We couldn't even have our sons organs donated, you understand that?" she said. "They wrong, they know they wrong."

"Change, that's all we're asking for," Brown Sr. said.
