Wilson says he has a clean conscience over his actions and says nothing would have been different if Michael Brown were white.

He tells Stephanopoulos that he did not shoot toward Brown’s back when he was running away and that he fired the fatal shot when Brown was charging toward him.

Wilson denies that Michael Brown’s arms were up at any time.

The officer maintains Brown reached into his car, grabbed for his gun and that’s why he feared for his life.

He does say he is sorry that Brown died and for the grief of the 18-year-old’s parents.

While a grand jury has decided not to indict Wilson, he says he doesn’t know what he’s going to be doing going forward.

He says all he ever wanted to do was be a police officer, but knows that is likely not going to be possible anymore.
