(CNN) – In his first televised interview, Officer Darren Wilson said he had no choice but to shoot and kill unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown.
When asked whether he is haunted by the incident, Wilson said his conscience is clear.
"How can your conscious be clear after killing somebody, even if it was an accidental death?" Michael Brown's mother Lesley McSpadden told CBS.
In an interview with CNN, McSpadden said to this day she has not heard from any Ferguson official – not from the mayor and not from the chief of police.
But what about Wilson? Is there any plan to try to reach out personally in any way to the Brown family?
"At this point it would be inappropriate given the situation," said Danielle Thompson, an attorney for Wilson.
