Would a dashcam really answer all the questions in the Michael Brown shooting?

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.

More than 1,400 people have died from Ebola across West Africa.

Could a newly released audio recording be a key clue in the Michael Brown shooting?

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.

Kidnapped American journalist Peter Theo Curtis is released, days after the murder of James Foley

American journalist Peter Theo Curtis is free, after being held for nearly two years by Muslim extremists in Syria. His release by the militant group the Nusra Front came as a surprise, just days after the execution of fellow American journalist James Foley by ISIS. Miguel Marquez has more about Curtis' ordeal.

Syria says it is ready to accept U.S. airstrikes to help stop ISIS, as long as certain conditions are met. The Muslim extremist group seized a key Syrian air base. But is it even possible that the U.S. would cooperate with the Assad regime? Anderson discussed this situation with CNN National Security Analyst Fran Townsend and Lieutenant General Mark Hertling who commanded U.S. forces in Iraq from 2007-2009.
