Crime & Punishment: The shooting of Jonathan Farrell

A North Carolina police officer is facing charges of voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of former FAMU football player Jonathan Ferrell. Police were called to the scene by a frantic 911 call from a woman who believed he was trying to break into her house. But authorities now believe he was knocking on her door seeking help following a car accident. Complicating the case, the officer is white, and the dead man is African-American. 360's Randi Kaye has the story.
This is far from an open and shut case. Anderson digs deeper with CNN Legal Analysts Mark Geragos and Sunny Hostin, along with retired New York City police officer Kevin Flanagan.
