"A Reason to Run": For 2 Men, the Road Leads to Ferguson

Two men ran from Atlanta to Ferguson, Missouri to pay tribute to Michael Brown and call for justice, NBC News reported. Londrelle Hall and Ray Mills, who don't consider themselves runners, trained for a few weeks before embarking on a 20-day journey that took them through five states in rain, sleet, hail and snow. Their destination was the Michael Brown memorial in Ferguson where the teen was shot. "I had a reason to run, not to run from my problems, but to run towards a problem and run for the problems of the world and the problems of America and what's going on now." Hall said. A grand jury's decision on whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Brown in August, could come this week. Read »

Ferguson Grand Jury Records Not Approved for Release

The prosecutor overseeing the Ferguson grand jury hearing the Michael Brown case took the rare step of recording and documenting the proceedings, but that doesn't mean they will be released to the public if police officer Darren Wilson isn't indicted, officials said Sunday, NBC News reported. The St. Louis County director of judicial administration, Paul Fox, released a statement Sunday saying that St. Louis Judge Carolyn Whittington has to analyze the records before she approves that they be released, and Whittington can't do that until the grand jury has finished hearing evidence. The grand jury's decision on whether to indict Wilson, who shot and killed 18-year-old Brown in August, could come this week. Read »

Despite differing opinions on President Obama’s executive order on immigration, two senators from opposite sides of the isle said Sunday that the proper response from Congress should be to put legislation on the president’s desk. Appearing on NBC’s "Meet the Press", Senators Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) advocated passing a comprehensive immigration reform bill. Menendez cited the precedent of 11 presidents over 60 years acting on immigration as proof that the Obama's action was legal. Flake did not weigh in on whether suing the president over his executive action was appropriate, but did say that he thought President Obama had "moved beyond his authority." Read »
