In his first public interview, aired on Tuesday, Darren Wilson defended his actions against Michael Brown, stating confidently that while he was sorry that the incident on Aug. 9th ended in Brown's death, he "would not have done anything differently."

The comment, expectedly, amounted to a punch in the gut to Brown's family. Brown's parents, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown, Sr., appeared on "CBS Morning News" to respond.

"I don't think he [Wilson] wanted to kill my son," McSpadden said, "but he wanted to kill someone."

"And in his statement he said he would do it again," said Brown.

"His conscience is clear?" McSpadden continued. "How could your conscience be clear after killing somebody even if it was an accidental death?"
