• Michael Brown’s Mother Smears Darren Wilson: “He Wanted To Kill Someone”

    Leslie McSpadden and Michael Brown, Sr. appeared on CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today early Wednesday in their first interviews since the grand jury decision was announced Monday. Both individuals appeared alongside their attorney, Benjamin Crump, to offer their reactions to that decision and the subsequent interview Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson gave to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

    As we now know from grand jury testimony, Michael Brown punched officer Officer Wilson twice in the face and even grabbed Wilson’s firearm and pointed it at him.

    This morning, McSpadden took issue with officer Darren Wilson’s explanation for what led to shooting Michael Brown.

    “I don’t believe a word of it,” McSpadded told Charlie Rose. “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. I don’t believe a word of it.”

    McSpadded then went so far as to claim that Darren Wilson was looking to kill someone.

    “He didn’t do what he had to do, he did what he wanted to do,” McSpadden said. “I don’t think he wanted to kill my son, but he wanted to kill someone. His conscience was clear?” referencing what Officer Wilson told George Stephanopoulos. “How could your conscience be clear after killing someone, even if it was an accidental death? We couldn’t even have my son’s organs donated. You understand that?”

    McSpadden also told the Today Show that Darren Wilson’s comments were like “injury after insult” and “disrespectful” to the legacy of her son.

    Leslie McSpadden is a grieving mother. She has had to bury her own son. I can’t imagine how that must feel.

    But Leslie McSpadden is lying to herself if she believes that Michael Brown “would never do anything like that.”

    Her son, the so-called ‘Gentle Giant,’ was on surveillance video robbing a box of cigars from a local convenience store and shoving the store owner after he tried to intervene. The reason Officer Wilson approached McSpadden’s son to begin with was because Brown and his accomplice fit the police description of the store robbery that aired on his police radio. Oh, and the bruises on Darren Wilson’s face were put there by her son as well. Michael Brown did, indeed, “provoke” the altercation that occurred and he lost his life as a result.

    Leslie McSpadden claims, without any evidence, that Darren Wilson “wanted to kill someone.”

    No. The fact is that Officer Wilson had never fired his gun in the line of duty before shooting Michael Brown.

    Darren Wilson had been a cop for six years.

    Are we to believe that Darren Wilson went to work everyday for six years, and that he didn’t fire his gun once, but decided on August 9, 2014 that he was going to, not only fire his gun, but that he was going to kill someone, too?

    That’s absolutely absurd.

    Leslie McSpadden may not want to accept it, but she raised a thug. If he wasn’t killed, Michael Brown would be serving a long prison sentence for the attempted murder of a police officer.

    Michael Brown was not an innocent kid just walking down the street minding his own business when officer Darren Wilson tried to apprehend him. He was a robbery suspect. And he made a series of terrible decisions, starting with the robbery and ending with an assault on a cop, that ultimately cost him his life.
