Missouri Governor Nixon: Angst Is Likely And Appropriate

(Ferguson, MO) -- The violence may have stopped in Ferguson, but Missouri Governor Jay Nixon doesn't think that means everything will be smooth from now on. The governor suggested today that there will be -- and should be -- angst and tension as the investigation into the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown moves forward. He called the shooting of the unarmed black teen by a police officer a "horrific tragedy," but said all investigations need to be thorough and accurate, which will take time and can be frustrating. Earlier this morning, it was revealed that Officer Darren Wilson was the one who shot and killed Brown last Saturday.
