Calls for justice in Ferguson are growing louder. Leaked details about the shooting of Michael Brown are adding to tensions that have rocked the city for more than two months. Missouri's Governor announced plans to create a commission to examine the social and economic conditions fueling the outrage.

We are now hearing from the man and woman who were in the front seat of their car as police smashed through the window and tasered the passenger. The driver was initially pulled over for not wearing her seatbelt. There were two children in the back seat, including one who recorded the incident. Susan Candiotti spoke to the driver and has new information on two of the officers on the scene.
This video raises serious legal questions about the actions of both the police and the adults in the car. Anderson took a closer look at what happened with attorney Areva Martin and CNN legal analyst and criminal defense attorney Mark O'Mara.
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.
