Meet the Other Darren Wilson

When the world found out that a cop named Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown, many people initially thought it was a black police officer from St. Louis, Missouri.

"My phone went off the hook," Sgt. Darren R. Wilson tells Chris Cuomo. The social media accounts for his organization, the Ethical Society of Police, also saw a ton of action from people looking for answers.

Given his unique perspective, Sgt. Wilson weighed in on the actions of the other Darren Wilson, as well as New York police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

"You hear the term 'zero to sixty.' It appears in both cases, that's what happened."
