“We Need Justice”: Slain Mo. Teen's Family Speaks

The family of an unarmed Missouri teen called for calm Monday, saying their son wouldn’t have wanted the rioting that followed. They also called for justice. "We’re going to do it the right way. But we need justice for our son,” Michael Brown’s father, Michael Brown Sr., told reporters. Michael Brown, 18, was shot by police Saturday in Ferguson, Missouri. Attorney Benjamin Crump, representing the family, rejected the police's version of events of Brown being involved in "a physical confrontation." Witnesses told NBC affiliate KSDK the teen had his hands in the air when he was shot.
