"And anybody out here who don't think so, I don't give a f***!"

Michael Brown's mother was captured on video Monday night reacting to the grand jury announcement that Ferguson police officer Daren Wilson would not be indicted for the shooting death of her son.

"You mother***ers think this a joke!" Lesley McSpadden shouted, seemingly directing her outrage toward the area the decision was being broadcasted. "They think this a f***ing joke!"

"And anybody out here who don't think so, I don't give a f***!" she continued. "They wrong! Everybody want me to be calm — do you know how them bullets hit my son?"

"Ain't nobody had to live through what I had to live through," McSpadden added.

The announcement of the grand jury’s decision sparked unrest in Ferguson, with rioters looting and setting fire to vehicles and local businesses.
