Michael Brown's parents blast Officer Wilson

In an interview with CNN, Michael Brown's parents, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr., shared their discontent for Officer Darren Wilson's version of events, saying their son would never have taunted the officer, nor reached for his weapon.

Brown's father didn't mince words when he spoke about Wilson: "He's a murderer."

"He understood his actions. He understood exactly what he was doing. You know, he didn't have a second thought, a pushback thought, or nothing. He was intending to kill someone. That's how I look at it," Brown said. "He was going to kill someone at that point."

Trayvon Martin's mother: "Judging by history, I wasn't surprised" by Ferguson decision

If there's one person who knows the pain Michael Brown's parents are going through, it's Sybrina Fulton. Her 17-year-old son, Trayvon, was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February 2012.

His trial ultimately ended in acquittal and sparked a civil rights debate across the nation.

It's been nearly two years since Zimmerman shot and killed Martin, and the Justice Department has yet to bring federal civil rights charges against him.  Will the Justice Department follow through on their investigation of the Ferguson shooting?
