Transcript for Friend of Officer Darren Wilson: 'I Can Never Imagine Him Shooting Anybody'
I've known there for -- not fourteen or fifteen years. He's he's a really quiet guy -- he is just really well mannered. He. Is very respectful. He's just the type of person that. Never has anything bad to say about anybody else. He did not have a temper when we played hockey together and and fighting is up part -- sport but he was never. Never the guy to start a fight never -- with a guy -- really jump into a fight he. He never took penalties where he would retaliate he just. He was always on -- really even keel just really laid back. I can never imagine. Him shooting anybody. Even as a police officer. And I think the whole situation is a tragedy for both Michael brown and his friendly and and for Darren and his family. Both of their lives there are -- -- I feel. Sympathy for for both parties. I feel like maybe he's -- them unfairly portrayed. And as a villain definitely Daryn it's been pretty careful. Not to talk a lot about the situation. Her advice from his attorneys. But I can tell and that he's struggling. You know I can tell that this is really hard on him. He has told me a -- couple times and you're really appreciates my support. And this is a very stressful time for some friends and organized -- benefit for him and I think they got -- little bit -- money together to try to help them out. Just knowing that people are behind him and and -- As quick to jump to conclusions as everybody else I think is what means the most to him. Darren is a good person and people have just immediately. Jumped to label him this cold blooded murderer. And that's just not the type of person that he is I wasn't fair I don't know exactly what happened. But I do know that there it is. A good man and down. He cares about other people a lot.
