7:00 am
america this morning, folks. good morning, america. breaking overnight, decision in ferguson. >> no probable cause exists to file any charge against officer wilson. >> the streets erupting in anger. [ chanting ] >> all: this is what democracy looks like. >> gunfire, tear gas, police cars set on fire. a family's anguish. a plea for calm ignored. >> i join michael's parents in asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully. >> widespread chaos. buildings in ferguson burning through the night. >> you need to disperse immediately. you're unlawfully assembled. >> gunfire shuts down air traffic over st. louis. and thousands of others protest ing in cities from los angeles to washington, d.c. for the first time, we're seeing the secret evidence from the grand jury investigation.
7:01 am
what officer darren wilson and witnesses told them what happened right before he shot and killed 18-year-old michael brown. this morning, a city and a nation on edge. also developing right now, a massive nor'easter heading for the biggest cities on the east coast. tens of millions of people in its path right as they head home for thanksgiving. up to a foot of snow about to affect the busiest travel time of the year. and we do say good morning, america. as you know, a very tense night after the grand jury's decision not to indict police officer darren wilson in the shooting death of michael brown. george is live in st. louis, missouri, this morning, where, thankfully, it seems like it's quiet right now, george. >> right now, it does appear calm, robin.
7:02 am
but last night, chaos. the reaction was swift, it was violent. shots were fired. protesters set fire to buildings, looted businesses throughout ferguson. national guard marched in, tear gas was used. and look at the police cars burning after the national guard comes in. >> and george, as you know, the decision resonated not just there in ferguson but all around the country. a number of protests. they were all passionate, but for the most part, they were peaceful from washington, d.c. l.a. protesters did shut down a highway there to here in new york out in front of our times square studio. but as we said all across the country, and the vast majority of them listened to what michael brown's family said, and no violence. >> and robin, look at the front page of "the st. louis post dispatch" this morning. so much anger and anguish here. the st. louis police chief said, the fabric of our community has been torn apart. you see this map, the worst violence was concentrated in the small area of ferguson. alex perez is there now. good morning, alex.
7:03 am
>> reporter: good morning, george. authorities say these were some of the worst protests they have seen since the ordeal began in august. i want to give you an idea of what many people are waking up to in ferguson here this morning. take a look at this here. this was a strip mall building. you can see the windows completely shattered here. over on the end there firefighters are still battling hot-spots. the building still smoldering from a fire. overnight, the streets of ferguson, missouri, descending into fiery chaos. a violent clash between police and protesters in the aftermath of the heated grand jury decision. clearing officer darren wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old michael brown. >> no probable cause exists to file any charge against officer wilson. [ sobbing ] >> reporter: brown's mother emotional in the streets after learning her son's killer would be a free man. soon after the announcement, reports of gunshots outside the ferguson police station, followed by widespread looting,
7:04 am
storefront windows smashed. and look what they did to the inside of this walgreens store. law enforcement hurling tear gas and smoke bombs, trying to disperse the crowds. >> i can't, i can't, i can't. let's go. >> reporter: from the white house, president obama calling for calm. >> hurting others or destroying property is not the answer. >> reporter: but his words going unheard on the streets of ferguson. >> cover your head. cover your head! >> reporter: protesters chucking rocks and bottles at police cruisers. >> stop throwing objects at the police immediately. >> reporter: and then setting them aflame. at least a dozen buildings turned to raging infernos. an entire parking lot in nearby dellwood, torched. fire crews racing to snuff out the flames. it's 2:10 in ferguson, authorities are working to get things under control. behind me, that's a strip mall building completely engulfed in flames.
7:05 am
one of many structures set on fire by protesters overnight. resulting in nearly 30 arrests and nearly a dozen people treated at hospitals. overnight, the national guard marching in. >> i don't have a lot of hesitation in telling you i didn't see a lot of peaceful protests out there tonight. >> reporter: and many of these firefighters and response crews working through the night. authorities say they heard at least 150 gunshots last night. but none of those gunshots came from police officers. now, at the st. louis airport they are expecting some delays today and cancellations because of the no-fly zone that was in order here. and, of course, the big issue here today will be assessing the damage as the day moves on. george? >> okay, alex, thanks very much. i'm joined by brittany packnet, a member of the ferguson commission teach for america leader here in st. louis. you were in the middle of the protests, what did you see? >> saw a lot of things. i think mostly i saw a community in profound grief.
7:06 am
utter anguish. a lot of people don't think justice was served or that we even have a chance for justice. i was certainly tear-gassed and caught in the middle of that unfortunately. i was there to stand with the community, for 109 days who has been demanding justice not just for mike brown but for all our children. >> you say that justice was not served. you heard from the st. louis county prosecutor putting out all the evidence there. saying there was no probable cause. what do you think he missed? >> well, i'm not a legal expert. since mike brown has passed we have had two more police-involved shootings in st. louis. we have also seen an unarmed man in new york shot down. a 12-year-old with a b.b. gun shot down, tamir wright, by police. we need meaningful action moving forward. >> in the protests last night, who was there and who tried to take over? >> sure. i would say that a lot of the folks in the family we built in the protest community and across this community were there. unfortunately things turned. but, you know, dr. king told another news man that riots are the language of the unheard.
7:07 am
so what we really have to be asking ourselves is what are we not listening to in this community that has been hurting for so long? >> thank you so much. want to bring in steve osunsami right now. we heard the prosecutor last night release all the evidence. you and your team have being going through it. what did you find? >> a mountain of evidence. lots of testimony from the medical experts. for the prosecutor, this is now the process of trying to convince residents here that what happened here was truly justice. this is the first time we're seeing this photo of officer darren wilson immediately following the moments where he shot and killed 18-year-old michael brown. grand jurors studied these injuries from what police say was a beatdown. according to the medical report, wilson was treated for a facial injury and needed medication. in testimony unsealed this morning, we're also hearing officer wilson's version of events in his own words. how he says brown pushed into his police suv and tried to grab his gun. hands are up and he's coming at my vehicle. i was hit right here in the
7:08 am
side of the face with a fist. the only way i can describe it, i felt like a 5-year-old holding on to hulk hogan. wilson said brown looked like a demon. those were his words. and then his account on the deadly gunfire. i was yelling at him to stop and get on the ground. he kept running. he gets to about eight to ten feet away. he's still coming at me in the same way. i fired more shots. and he went down right there. the prosecutor, bob mccullough, says what really made the difference here were witnesses from the scene, heard hear in this cell phone video from the day brown was killed. >> he stood over him and pow, pow, pow, pow, pow. >> reporter: he says some of them changed their stories or made them up. >> some witnesses admitted they didn't actually see the shooting or only saw a part of the shooting. were only repeating what they had heard on the street. some adjusted the statements to fit the facts. others stood by original statements even though their statements were completely discredited by the physical evidence. >> reporter: grand jurors pored over tape, radio calls from the
7:09 am
day of the shooting. >> we need several more units, there's going to be a problem. >> reporter: the family of michael brown says it's real easy at this point to assassinate the character of the victim, because he is dead. they also question the integrity of the process, because they say the prosecutor administers the grand jury. and it's in the prosecutor's best interest to keep his cops, his police safe. >> thank you. to robin now speaking with the family's attorney. >> all right, george, thank you. joined now from ferguson by benjamin crump, the lead attorney for the brown family. thank you, mr. crump, for spending a little time with us this morning. we saw the reaction that michael brown's mother had after learning of the grand jury's decision. you were the one who delivered the news to her shortly before it became public. can you share any more details with us? >> yes, ma'am. we had just prayed, robin. and then we -- took the phone
7:10 am
call, attorney gray called me. and she really had faith that the system would work for her child. so she was just completely devastated. she was overwhelmed with emotion and heartbroken that the system did not work equally for her child. >> mr. crump, after the grand jury's decision, officer wilson's defense team said in part law enforcement personnel must frequently make split-second and difficult decisions. officer wilson followed his training and followed the law. what is your reaction to that statement? >> nobody is ever held accountable. we have to change the system. the souls of thousands of young african-americans cry out from the grave that we have to change this system. it is imperative that we have to make positive change here or this is going to continue to play out over and over again. >> when you say change the system, what exactly do you mean? >> robin, michael brown's parents really want his death to
7:11 am
be a catalyst for change to change this system. a system where the local prosecutor, who has a symbiotic relationship with the local police department and the local police officers who kill young people of color have to sit in judgment whether to indict them or not. well, they have no relationship and no regards for the young people of color that have been killed. and we often see the system exonerate these police officers over and over again. we continue to see our children being killed by the people who are supposed to protect and serve them. and there's no consequence when they are killed. >> despite their immense pain, many appreciated michael brown's family releasing a statement saying not to answer violence with violence. that that is not the answer here. and not in their son's name. there were many protests around the country. the majority of those protests were peaceful. but the same cannot be said in
7:12 am
ferguson, as you know. is there something additionally that the family would like to say to the protesters? >> his mother and father continually ask for peace. they want people not just to make noise, but to try to make a difference. they really want the michael brown law, this proposal for all police officers to have to wear video body cameras, in every city in america. and they say again, we have to be disciplined and dignified. we can't have a few bad apples destroy the message of michael brown's call for peace. >> i think that's something that we all can agree upon. mr. crump, thank you very much. and the best to michael brown's family. thank you, sir. >> thank you, robin. >> and thank you, robin. the grand jury here finished its work. no criminal charges filed against officer wilson. but there is still a federal investigation. a civil rights investigation. let's go to pierre thomas with more on that.
7:13 am
pierre? >> reporter: george, the focus and the pressure now turns to the justice department. it will be the final word on whether criminal charges are filed against officer wilson. and i can tell you, the threshold is very high. they have to determine whether officer wilson's decision to shoot brown was unreasonable under the circumstances. and they must find evidence officer wilson intentionally violated brown's civil rights, possibly because of race. it's a vigorous investigation. no guarantee how it will turn out. we're not expecting this investigation to be done for weeks. attorney general holder has taken a personal interest in the case and has even gone to ferguson. last night he issued a statement saying the evidence should not be prejudged and called brown's death a tragedy. george? >> there's a second investigation into the underlying conditions in the ferguson police department. >> reporter: yes, they're looking into whether the ferguson police department discriminates against minorities. there are questions about whether the police force is diverse enough, and bias in traffic stops. the justice department will work
7:14 am
with the police department to address these issues. if there's disagreement, they may seek a court order to force the department to change. >> more work to be done. pierre thomas, thanks very much. let's go back to robin. >> thank you, george. and the grand jury met for 25 days over three months, hearing more than 70 hours of testimony. dan abrams has been reading through the documents released overnight. he joins us now. many people are upset. some of the people who are upset, because it wasn't heard in front of a jury. a grand jury. explain the difference between a regular jury and the grand jury. >> the first thing is, they're not deciding guilt or innocence. just if there's enough case to go to trial. a grand jury is much more secretive, casual. only need 9 out of 12 to have the case move forward. evidence that wouldn't typically be admitted in a trial can be admitted in front of a grand jury. typically, you have a cup of detechives walk in, the prosecutor asks for a particular charge, and they get it.
7:15 am
this was more akin to a jury. meaning that they got all of the evidence in this particular case to evaluate. still no cross-examination of witnesses, et cetera, but more like a typical jury trial in the amount of evidence that these grand jurors got to evaluate. >> but not typical in that they're not polled. so you have no idea the count. >> that's right. so a lot of people want to know. we needed 9 out of 12. how many were there? 7 to 5? was it 5 to 7? we don't know. we'll likely never find out because the grand jury deliberation process is intended to be so secretive. >> you were watching the prosecutor's lengthy press conference last night. he was not -- in your opinion, not only defending the process, but also the facts behind it? >> the reason for the prosecutor to give this case to the grand jury is to say, look, they decided it, not me. i didn't just call a detective or two and ask for a particular charge. i gave them all the evidence. but in the press conference the d.a. sure sounded like he was defending the finding of the grand jury, not just the process. >> and this is unusual. as you said before. >> no question.
7:16 am
this process was unusual. getting the grand jury this much evidence. all of this to then decide is very unusual. >> and then to make it public so people are going to be poring over it. >> that, too, is unusual. >> all right, dan, thanks very much. now to amy with the other top developing stories. good morning. and we begin with concerns about those exploding air bags blamed for at least five deaths and millions of car recalls. u.s. senators have given the air bag's manufacturer, takata, a deadline of december 12th to answer more questions about the faulty air bags. including how they were made and whether there was a cover-up. lawmakers say they are not satisfied with the testimony given by a company executive last week. meanwhile, honda, which was hit hard by the recall, now admits it failed to report more than 1700 claims of death or injury from other defects since 2003. it's blaming computer errors. well, troubling news as millions of americans plan to fly home for the holiday.

you're trying -- or dressing. only stuffing inside the bird. outside the bird, it's dressing. just saying. here's the thing, instead of making it in a big vessel. like say that you wanted to make this at somebody else's house. make it in muffin tins. stick them in a bag. transport them, in the pan, 350 oven for ten minutes. and they're hot again. somebody's been picking at this. >> look, there's like see no evil, hear no evil -- >> taste no evil. >> can we taste this? it's hard when you're transporting the turkey. >> here's the deal. about transporting the turkey. watch this. if you have the turkey done, and have to go to grandmother's house, take them, do this. i've got a box. a card board box, all right. cardboard box, put it on the floor. packing chips. these are just cellulose packing chips. these are from fedex or some
8:53 am
other shipper. not an endorsement. make the turkey in a roasting pan and a bath towel. pick it up, you got that? >> got it. >> drop it on the packing chips. put the towel over it. either more packing chips or even bubble wrap on top of that. close up the box and you have a special delivery for grandmom's house. that's all you have to do. believe it or not. that will stay hot for about three hours. like that. >> you should take this act on the road. and on you are, actually, aren't you? >> dance, we need the dancing part. there you go. now it's a show. >> aren't you going on tour? >> yes. i have been on tour, i'm going back on tour starting in january. and the next few games anybody with problems on thanksgiving, can tweet me with the hash tag abgsos. i'll be there. >> with a blow torch. we'll be right back. we'll be right back.
