Ferguson, Mo. police Officer Darren Wilson says he’s had a “clean conscience” since fatally shooting unarmed black teen Michael Brown on Aug. 9.
“I don’t think its haunting. It’s always going to be something that happened,” Wilson told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos in an interview that aired Tuesday night, his first since the fatal confrontation. “The reason I have a clean conscience is because I know I did my job right.”
Wilson recounted his struggle with Brown and repeated some of the same details he’d shared in testimony before a grand jury that decided not to indict him for the shooting. Stephanopoulos asked him to elaborate on describing Brown as a “demon” in testimony.
“It was a very, very intense, intense image he was presenting,” Wilson said. “I was so shocked by the whole interaction because this escalated so quickly from a simple request to a fight for survival.”
