Daryl Parks, an attorney for Michael Brown‘s family, said he does not believe Wilson’s testimony that he was scared of Brown.
“Officer Darren Wilson is 6’4″, and Michael Brown is 6’4″, so there’s a little bit of a weight difference, it’s not like the officer’s a short man or stature, he’s a tall man, so I don’t really buy into this whole thing that he was scared,” Parks said. “If that’s the case, I’m bigger than Michael Brown — should that be that every officer smaller than me should feel threatened and use deadly force if I don’t come to warn him? No it doesn’t mean that.”
Schultz agreed, and said, referring to Wilson, that someone should not be in law enforcement if he or she is afraid of someone who is unarmed.
“I think the training of law enforcement is far more sophisticated than to resort to, ‘I’m gonna fire on this guy multiple times,'” Schultz said. “I don’t buy that, personally.”
