George Stephanopoulos interviews Darren Wilson

From ABC: In an exclusive interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, police officer Darren Wilson breaks his silence about the shooting of Michael Brown.

The National Bar Association, led by an attorney for Michael Brown’s family, says it has filed a "lawsuit" with the Missouri Department of Public Safety, demanding the revocation of Darren Wilson's police officer license.

The department acknowledged receiving a document but said it is being treated as a complaint because the agency is not a venue for a suit. Spokesman Mike O'Connell said he could not reveal specifics.

Wilson, a white Ferguson police officer, shot and killed Brown, an unarmed black teen, on Aug. 9, triggering nationwide protests. Wilson resigned from the force Nov. 29, five days after a St. Louis County grand jury decided not to indict him in Brown's death.

Neil Bruntrager, a lawyer for Wilson, said being a police officer “is off the table forever” but that, "Keeping his license in good standing is a matter of pride.” Bruntrager added, “He didn't resign under any criminal charges and he didn't do anything wrong.”

The association, which says it represents African-American lawyers and judges, is headed by Benjamin Crump, who represents Brown's family. Its press release alleges that Wilson "committed a criminal act."

The release also says Wilson's comment in a TV interview that Brown had “looked like a demon” led the association to "challenge his suitability to ever wear a badge and carry a gun ever again.”
