Wilson said in an interview with ABC News this week that he would have done nothing differently in how he dealt with Brown during their now-infamous fatal encounter, and that his conscience is clear. Brown’s parents were particularly disturbed by that, with mother Lesley McSpadden asking, “How could your conscience be clear after killing someone, even if it was an accidental death?”

Rangel said that “you should be sorry when you take anybody’s life” and Wilson’s “total indifference just polarized the community.”
