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
