Officer Darren Wilson's Account of Michael Brown Shooting Stirs Critics

The Rev. Al Sharpton held a rally Saturday slamming a New York Times report published Friday that said the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri told investigators that he feared for his life during a "scuffle" with the unarmed teenager. In the report, government officials said forensic evidence in the case "validates" that Officer Darren Wilson "had reason to fear for his safety" when he shot Brown. During the National Action Network rally in New York City, Sharpton said government officials are speaking about the evidence in "an attempt to set a climate" so that the grand jury deciding whether to charge Wilson in Brown's death has "an excuse not to proceed."
