Transcript for Ferguson Community Reacts to ABC News' Darren Wilson Interview
Finally tonight, few signs of cooling off here in the boiling pot that is Ferguson, Missouri. It seems officer Darren Wilson's first public comments have done little to ease tensions here. In fact, for some, they made matters worse. And that's when he turned and said, what the Are you going to do about it? Almost from the moment Darren Wilson opened his mouth, the reaction was strong. I didn't hear him apologize one time. Patrons at this St. Louis barbershop doubting his version. I don't believe that. I don't believe what he's saying. How do you think your friends will react? They know he was lying. Everybody in the community knows he's lying. Jalen is a college freshman. You been stopped by the police? Plenty of times. Show of hands if you've been stopped by the police, treated unfairly. Oh, man. Two hands up. I got both hands up, two hands and two feet. These men are voicing frustration. But today around the country, from Ferguson to New York, to Oakland, to Boston, people are demonstrating it. Last night, Michael brown's mother erupted in tears after the announcement the grand jury did not indict the man who killed her son. We object publicly and loudly as we can on behalf of Michael brown jr.'s family that this process is broken. But there are deep and bitter emotions on both sides. Supporters of officer Wilson interrupted a brown family press conference today. Fighting broke out until Michael brown Sr. Interviewed. I don't want to hear that. It's all right. It's all right. As for the barbershop tonight, a metaphor of sorts for America. Yes, millions watched officer Wilson, but what you heard may well have been colored by the life you've lived. Because I'm a father myself, when you start losing your kids behind it, it really, you know, tears into your soul. You want something to happen. A common refrain tonight.
