Pastor in Ferguson: ‘Democracy is on fire, and we're called to be fire men’

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. Sara Sidner speaks to Pastor Osagyefo Ohuru Sekou, who has been arrested twice for protesting in Ferguson.

Could these leaks be a strategic attempt to soften the blow in the event that there is no indictment of Officer Wilson? Anderson asked CNN legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Mark O'Mara, along with St. Louis Alderman Antonio French.

    Democracy has not been set on fire, and you're not firemen. Buildings were set on fire, and your "black community" ran riot through the place ripping off 30 cent nicknacks and stealing beer.

    I almost HOPE someone is stupid enough to bring the right to my house. I have a claw-hammer ready just aching to smash someone's face in.

    I remember the riots after the OJ Simpson verdict, when my house was attacked. I've been practicing on watermelons all day. The first person to break into my house gets murdered.

    CNN Must Fire Mark O'Mara
    What is CNN thinking. Mark O'Mara is the lawyer who skillfully manipulated the evidence to fit the outrageous stand your ground law to set George Zimmerman free for the murder of an unarmed young black teenager. O'Mara is the defender of this outrageous law which allows the murder of innocent people by nefarious characters like George Zimmerman. How could CNN give O'Mara a forum to defend this outrageous law.

    The racism and social division in America is deeply rooted and Ferguson is an open volcano ready to erupt. Oh how we long for the steady and spiritual wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who lived for and died for weeding out the hate and winning the hearts and souls of even those in power. There can be no social justice until their is inner justice, the art of transforming rage into connective spirituality. You fight hatred with love, not with hatred.
