"He had his f****n hands up." That's what one witnesses is screaming in a video recorded moments after the shooting death of Michael Brown. He was one of two contractors who just happened to be working nearby that day. Randi Kaye spoke to the attorney for the man who shot that video and she has new information.
How does this video change the case against Officer Darren Wilson? Anderson discussed this with CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin and Anthony Gray, who is an attorney for Michael Brown's family.
Newly obtained video captured the reactions of two men who witnessed the shooting of Michael Brown. One of them screams, "He had is f****n hands up," and motioned with his own arms. AC360 spoke to both men and they say Darren Wilson was not the only officer on the scene, there were two others. They even say that a second officer drew his weapon but did not pull the trigger. Randi Kaye spoke to one of those witnesses and breaks down the video.
Does this video change the case? Anderson discussed this with legal analysts Jeffrey Toobin and Sunny Hostin, along with Neil Bruntrager, who is General Counsel for the St. Louis Police Officers Association.
There are two eyewitnesses to the shooting of Michael Brown that we did not know about until now. Their accounts has some similarities to what previous witnesses have said. But these two people are not from Ferguson and they did not know Michael Brown. Joe Johns has their story.
What do these new accounts of the shooting mean for the case against Officer Darren Wilson? Anderson discussed it with Neil Bruntrager, who is the general counsel for the St. Louis Police Officers Association, along with CNN legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos.
Confrontations with police armed with military weapons and vehicles are some of the iconic images to emerge from the chaos and violence in Ferguson, Missouri after the shooting death of Michael Brown. A New Jersey city that just a few years ago ranked dead last when it came to murders, shootings and drugs has transformed its police force by moving away from militarization. Deborah Feyerick looks at how that move may have also turned around the city of Camden.
Two days after Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson, police officers in Los Angeles gunned down 25-year-old Ezell Ford. It has taken the LAPD two weeks to release the officers' names. Stephanie Elam has the latest on his story.
Does the Ferguson audio recording backup Officer Wilson's version of the shooting?
It might be the sound of Michael Brown losing his life. A company that makes a video conferencing app confirms audio of gunshots in Ferguson was recorded right around the time Officer Darren Wilson opened fire. CNN cannot independently confirm whether this recording actually captured audio of that shooting, but it is an intriguing piece of the puzzle. Don Lemon explains how CNN obtained this recording.
If this audio is verified, what does it tell us about the shooting? Anderson spoke with audio forensic expert Frank Piazza, CNN legal analyst Mark O'Mara and legal affairs commentator Areva Martin.
Officer Darren Wilson's actions are being closely scrutinized to determine whether his decision to shoot Michael Brown was justified. One lab is working to help train police officers for the moments like that when lives are on the line. Gary Tuchman visited the violence confrontation lab and even took part in one of the simulations.
Anderson discussed the impact of this sort of training with Neil Bruntrager, General Counsel of the St. Louis Police Officers Association and Phillip Abita Goff, Assistant Professor of social psychology at UCLA.
There was no dashcam on Officer Wilson's car when he fired the fatal shots at Michael Brown. Some argue one of those cameras could have stopped the controversy surrounding the shooting. Randi Kaye looks at several incidents where dashcams were involved and found it is not always an open and shut case.
Are dashcams really a quick fix in cases like the Michael Brown shooting? Anderson discussed that question with Washington University law professor Neil Richards and CNN legal analyst Mark Geragos.
A man who lives near the spot where Michael Brown lost his life has come forward with what he says is an audio recording of Officer Wilson firing his gun. CNN cannot independently confirm that this is an actual recording of the shooting, but if it is authentic it could be a key piece of evidence. Ted Rowlands has what can be heard on this recording.
What could the recording mean for prosecutors, if Officer Wilson is charged in the shooting of Michael Brown? Anderson discussed it with CNN legal analysts Jeffrey Toobin and Sunny Hostin, along with audio forensic expert Frank Piazza.
You might know Hill Harper as one of the stars of the show 'Covert Affairs.' He just returned from a visit to Ferguson. He described an 'us against them' mentality when it comes to both the police force and young people living there.
