MIKE BROWN’S MOM: My Saint-Like Gentle Son “Would Never Provoke Anyone”

The fact that she said these words is quite amusing when you consider the deceased thug was so gentle that he had just assaulted a convenience store owner and robbed him of some cigars.


GAYLE KING, CBS: You know, the officer has spoken now for the first time and he’s giving his version, and I’d like to know your reaction. He said your son threw the first punch, your son did not have his arms up. That your son was approaching him and that he was in fear of his life. Leslie, what do you say to what Officer Wilson is saying today?

LESLIE MCSPADDEN, MICHAEL BROWN’S MOTHER: “I don’t believe a word of it. I knew my son far too well to, he would never do anything like that. He would never provoke anyone to do anything to him and he wouldn’t do anything to anybody. I don’t believe a word of it.”
