After conducting an emotional interview last night with the parents of Michael Brown, an unarmed African American 18-year-old killed by police in Missouri over the weekend, Don Lemon wrote about the “heartbreaking” exchange.
The mother and father are now left without their beloved son, gone too soon. She broke down during our interview. During our interview Michael Brown’s father wore a t-shirt with his son’s picture on it and the words “no justice” emblazoned across the front. Their attorney, Benjamin Crump who represented Trayvon Martin’s family is vowing that in the end the message on that shirt will prove untrue; that one day soon there will be justice for Michael Brown and his family. The whole world is watching.
During the interview, Brown’s mother broke down after Lemon evoked what his mother would say: “You shouldn’t go before I should go; your son should not die before you die.”
