National Guard troops secure the police station in Ferguson, Missouri, a day after violent protests and looting following the grand jury decision in the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old black teenager Michael BrownThe white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in the US town of Ferguson said Tuesday he has a "clean conscience" and would not do anything differently if given the chance. Darren Wilson said he feared for his life before he drew his gun -- the first time he had used his firearm on the job in the St Louis suburb -- before opening fire, killing 18-year-old Michael Brown. "The reason I have a clean conscience is because I know I did my job right," Wilson told ABC News, speaking publicly for the first time since the August 9 shooting. A grand jury on Monday decided not to indict Wilson, sparking a night of violent riots in Ferguson, a town of 21,000 with a mostly white police force.
