The stepfather of Michael Brown has issued an apology for remarks he made to a crowd in Ferguson, Mo., after a grand jury decided not to indict the police officer who fatally shot his unarmed stepson.
In a video last week, Louis Head told protesters to "Burn this [expletive] down," after St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced that a grand jury did not find enough evidence to indict former Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, for the shooting of Brown, a black teenager.
"I was so angry and full of raw emotions, as so many others were, and granted, I screamed out words that I shouldn't have screamed in the heat of the moment," he said in a statement. "It was wrong and I humbly apologize to all of those who read my pain and anger as a true desire for what I want for our community."
Jackson, speaking to Fox News on Monday, said the department is "pursuing those comments" but did not elaborate on what, if any, charges Head could face.
