Benjamin Crump, an attorney for the family of Michael Brown, says his clients view Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot their son, as a cold-blooded killer who might not have a conscience.


They were dismayed over what they viewed as Wilson’s lack of remorse, after he claimed to have a “clean conscience” after the shooting, Crump said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“They just felt that’s just very cold,” he said.

“His mother and father don’t think officer Wilson had any consideration for their child, and they wonder if he ever had a conscience,” he added. “That’s troubling to them.

“We want police officers that do have a conscience in our community, not police officers that are as cold as ice and see our children as demons and criminals,” he said.

Wilson told a grand jury that Brown looked like “a demon” shortly before Wilson shot and killed him.

“That’s how angry he looked,” Wilson said, testifying that he feared for his life.

Crump said Brown’s family “will pursue all the legal avenues,” including a wrongful death civil lawsuit and work with the advocates to require police officers across the country wear digital body cameras while on the beat.
