Ferguson's Police Chief explains the handling of the Michael Brown shooting investigation

It has been four days since unarmed teen Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. In that time federal officials launched a civil rights investigation and the FBI is looking into the case. The community is rallying around Brown's family and demanding answers from police, including the identity of the officer who pulled the trigger. Wolf asked Ferguson's Police Chief Thomas Jackson why that information is still not being released.

There was a new round of violence and arrests tonight in Ferguson. Wolf discussed the handling of this case with Syracuse University's Boyce Watkins and legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Mark O'Mara.

    I know I'm repeating myself, but I just can't get over it. I didn't know elephant-seals were qualified for enforcement. I bet inside him is a thin guy dying to get out–and that's not a metaphor. I really think he may have eaten another person. In fact, if you compare the video to others, its clear that they used a wide-angle lens to fit his entire face on the screen.

    It may turn out that all the rioting in Ferguson is less about murder than this guy constantly pulling over anyone with a McDonald's bag, and saying "are you gonna finish that?"

    I can't believe he's a full-bird colonel rank. The only department he should be a colonel of is KFC.

    I've never seen a fat Chief of Police. That fact alone is shocking. Fat cops are traitors. If the Chief has no standards, how can we assume the best about his officers?
