welcome to "cbs this morning." fires are still burning in ferguson, missouri, after unrest and anger left destruction in the streets. violence comes after a grand jury declined to indict officer darren wilson in the shooting of michael brown. violence was there with some burn to get ground. in what they called the worst night of violence since the august shooting. >> gunfire rang out and they tried police cars. because of the violence, the faa rerouted planes. michelle miller is in ferguson, michelle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. these are some of the businesses that received the brunt of that anger here in ferguson. little caesar's over here to my right. and this is a jewelry store, what's left of it, completely burned out. all quiet now.
7:04 am
but a night of what was a peaceful protests quickly spiraled out of control. on the streets of ferguson, protests that have been largely peaceful erupted after the grand jury's decision. clouds of what appeared to be tear gas enveloped the streets. a cbs news cameraman took cover in a parking lot when gunshots rang out around him. several businesses including cars in this lot fully engulfed in flames. restaurants and stores looted. shop owners assessing the destruction. zbrts got anger all over it. you know, it's not just to take the stuff. it's more to do damage. >> reporter: west florissant avenue where violence shook the nation in august was again the scene of turmoil. >> it just spun out of control. what i've seen tonight is probably much worse than the worst night we had in august and
7:05 am
it's truly unfortunate. >> reporter: outside of police headquarters anger boiled over. two police cars were set on fire as officers in riot gear and armored vehicles attempted to break up unruly crowds. >> you need to stop. this is the police. >> reporter: some hurled rocks, bricks and bottles. police returned fire with rubber bullets, stun guns and smoke canisters. less than two miles from ferguson, several cars burned in front of delwood city hall. and in nearby st. louis, crowds blocked traffic on interstate 44. the missouri national guard which was activated by governor jay nixon at the state of emergency, he seemed large eye absent. we did not see them around the hot zones. by 2:00 a.m., they were present in full riot gear at the ferguson police department over
7:06 am
on west florissant avenue. norah, gayle. >> all right, michelle. i'll take it, thank you. the root of it in ferguson, some saying they did not push hard enough. mark phillips is there in ferguson, mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, this is the family dollar store in ferguson which was torched aftered any night. the firefighters just got finished putting out hot spots. as you can see, it's a total loss. sometime after midnight, the store went up and people started coming out on the streets. there was a clear difference last night between protesters and rioters and looters and this is the difference. >> i ain't never going to be right. >> reporter: moments after the grand jury decision not to indict officer darren wilson, leslie mcfadden could not
7:07 am
control her emotions. >> everybody want me to be calm, you know how you kill might son. >> reporter: after waiting 3 1/2 months she felt cheated. >> they determined that no probable cause exists without any charges to officer wilson. the physical and scientific evidence examined by the grand jury, combined with the witness statements supported and substantiated by that physical evidence held the accurate and tragic story of what happened. >> reporter: thattest according to prosecuting attorney robert mccullough included images of officer wilson following the august 9th shooting. them show what appears to be a bruised neck and stains from michael brown's blood on his police uniform, consistent with shots fired at close range. wilson testified to the grand jury that brown physically overwhelmed him, punching him repeatedly. never at any point did i have control of him. he manipulated me while i was in the vehicle completely. i felt like a 5-year-old child
7:08 am
holding ton hulk hogan. it instantly turned into how do i live through this." >> all the decisions in the criminal justice system must be determined by the physical and scientific evidence, not in response to public outcry or for political expediency. >> reporter: the outcry on the streets of ferguson turned ugly and stayed ugly for hours, despite pleas from community leaders and michael brown's parents to remain peaceful. this grand jury decision fuels the distrust many here feel with local police. ben crump is the brown family attorney. >> if we continue to have local prosecutors who have a sim sim onic relationship with the local police department, they're the ones deciding to indict or not then we're crazy to expect different results. >> reporter: officer wilson released a statement through his lawyers, he said that he
7:09 am
followed his training and followed the law. he also thanked his supporters. he got the grand jury decision that he wanted but his career as a ferguson police officer is probably over. norah. protests spread beyond ferguson to cities across the country. seattle police battled protesters keeping them from blocking interstate 5. and look at this, protesters in oakland jumped on another busy street. in chicago, after the grand jury announced, hundreds of angry people gathered at a downtown area to protest. hundreds more marched through times square. > >> mounds of evidence presented to the grand jury are available to the public this morning. it includes testimony of officer wilson and pictures of him in the hospital just after the confrontation. wilson told the jury what
7:10 am
happened. he said this, quote, i'm backpedaling pretty quickly i know if he reaches me he'll kill me. he started to lean forward like he was going tackle me. i looked down and i remember looking at my sites and firing. all i see is his head and that's what i shot." >> cbsews rikki klieman is with us. we should add that ricci is the wife of bill bratton. why the absence of an indictment? >> the absence of an indictment began when we began talking about the story months ago. and that has to do with physical evidence or what we call forensic evidence. the forensic evidence did not lie, we lawyers often say to the public in closing arguments to the jury, we say physical evidence doesn't lie. only people do. what the prosecutor said in his statement and thoughtful statement last night was he
7:11 am
outlined the evidence. he talked about witnesses who said they were eyewitnesss who said that michael brown had been shot many times in the back. many of them say officer wilson was standing over michael brown shooting him in the back. then, of course, when the autopsy leaked, then they changed their testimony. what they said for 25 days of testimony, 60 witnesses and 70 hours, that the only thing that could really come true for these jurors in making their decision was whose evidence matched the physical evidence. >> were you surprised that the grand jury information was release society quickly and in so much detail? >> i was surprised because i was here last night working on a special report and the streaming of you our new network, when i was on streaming, the papers started coming at me. what the prosecutor made a decision to do was that he believed he did not need a court order to go forward and release this particular information.
7:12 am
one of the things we learned from this information, for the very first time, by the way, is that we can see the four hours of officer wilson's testimony. and in certain odd ways it may have been much better if we learned about officer wilson's story, not his testimony, but his story early on. that perhaps it might have defused some of the violence. because what happened in this case, we'd only heard one side of the story. officer wilson's story, according to the prosecutor, matches the physical evidence much more than than any of the eyewitness's stories. one of the things about officer wilson, when he does testify, which he didn't have to, he chose to do, he talks about his subjective fear. and he sounds -- i read that out loud when i got home last night just to hear it. i read it out loud, and he is terrified by virtue of his own words. clearly, the grand jury chose to believe him.
7:13 am
>> this is not the end of this, though. there's a justice department investigation and could be a civil suit. >> yes, i expect there to be a civil suit by the brown family for wrongful death. president obama's message to america is to accept the rule of law in a rare nighttime news conference, he urged protesters to stay peaceful. major garrett is at the white house where the president said race relations are still struggling in this country. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama did not watch the prosecutor's announcement last night, but his top advisers did. they briefed him. he had moved from the residence to the west wing, sat down briefly with his chief speechwriter and prepared to address the nation. all in routine. his remarks, the president stressed that the grand jury did its job. >> there are americans who agree with it, and there are americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. an understandable reaction. but i join michael's parents in
7:14 am
asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully. >> reporter: this is the fifth time the president has addressed michael brown's death the ensuing protests and theian going case. the justice department reviews the president's stress as he has throughout the entire saga, the need for peaceful protests and better police tactics to keep questions about police brutality and racial profiling front and center. >> we have to wake them up and not deny them or try to tamp them down, what we need to do is understand them and figure out how do we make more progress. and that can be done. that won't be done by throwing bottles, that won't be done by smashing car windows. that won't be done by using this as an excuse to vandalize property. and certainly, won't be done by hurting anybody. >> reporter: the grand jury's decision not to indict darren

i want to ask you. so what is your answer? >> well, i think it's critically important that the justice department consider its investigation of the ferguson police department. the st. louis county police department. the naacp is going to be marching from the home of michael brown in ferguson to the home of the governor in jefferson city. 100 miles in seven days. we do not intend to relent. we do not intend to stop our calls for a wholesale fundamental reform in the country. >> martin luther king said violence is a message for the unheard. president obama called for calm on the streets. people needing to here it were out on the streets. what is your strategy? what is your message to the people who are causing the violence? >> the message the of the naacp
