Michael Brown's mother on Darren Wilson testimony: 'I don't believe a word of it'

Michael Brown's parents are deeply skeptical of police officer Darren Wilson's version of events that resulted in him killing their son in Ferguson, Missouri.

"I don't believe a word of it," Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden, told CBS.

Wilson testified that Brown charged at him and kept running even after he fired a volley of bullets. But McSpadden said she knew her son "far too well" and that he "would never provoke anyone to do anything to him and he would never do anything to anybody." --Jon Terbush
