WASHINGTON, November 26 (Sputnik) – US police officer Darren Wilson told ABC News Tuesday that he did his job right when he shot African-American teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
In August, Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African-American, was shot dead by white police officer Darren Wilson in the St. Louis suburb Ferguson. The incident sparked a wave of riots and violent protests against police, while increasing tensions between the African-American community and US law enforcement.
Major protests erupted in Ferguson Monday over the grand jury's decision not to indict Wilson.
On Tuesday, US President Barack Obama said that new initiatives were going to be introduced in the United States to ensure that law enforcement is equally applied to all US citizens.
