Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson has spoken out for the first time in an ABC News exclusive interview with GMA anchor George Stephanopoulos. In the interview, Wilson conveys his side of the story of what happened in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
As Wilson takes Stephanopoulos through the account of the Michael Brown shooting it becomes evident that Wilson does not feel any guilt about shooting and killing Michael Brown and truly believes he was just doing his job.
Stephanopoulos asked all the questions that the public has had on their minds, such as: “Is there anything you could have done differently that could have prevented that killing from taking place?” To which Wilson quickly replied, “No.”
Stephanopoulos went on to ask, “And you’re absolutely convinced when you look through your heart and your mind that if Michael Brown were white this would have gone down in exactly the same way?” Wilson quickly responded, “Yes.”
The most important thing Wilson wants the American people to know is, “We’re just simple everyday normal people. There’s really nothing special about us.”
Ferguson, MO has been in an uproar along with many others around the country since the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson.
