For Ferguson Protesters and Cops, Fear Is Common Denominator

For Ferguson police officers, protesters and their families, fear is the common denominator ahead of the announcement of a grand jury's decision whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown. “For the first time since living here, we feel unwelcome,” said Ferguson resident Jamie Howard, whose husband, Robert, is a police officer in a nearby town. Another police officer, who is black, said that “people don’t trust law enforcement" in the wake of Brown's death. But some activists, like D.

Ferguson Leaders Call for Peace Ahead of Grand Jury Decision

A grand jury in Missouri has reached a decision on whether police officer Darren Wilson should face charges in the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said in a press conference ahead of the announcement Monday that the St. Louis suburb is "on edge waiting on a decision." He urged calm, saying necessary resources are in place to "protect lives, protect property and protect free speech." The grand jury has been given a range of charges to consider. It could also choose not to indict the officer. Check back for updates on this breaking news story. Read »

Hagel, the only Republican on the president's national security team, has served in the job since February 2013. A successor will be named "in short order," an official said to NBC News, but Hagel will stay in the job until his replacement is confirmed. Read »
