Rep. Brown: Trayvon investigation 'a disaster'

Brooke is joined by Florida Rep. Corrine Brown to discuss the controversy surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin.  Brown expresses frustration with both the Sanford Police Department and the media's coverage of the Trayvon Martin case.  She also addresses recent developments in the story that suggest that the police initially wanted to charge George Zimmerman in the case, but were stopped by the district attorney.  Brown says this is not about race, and hopes the new developments don't represent an attempt at a "cover-up" on the behalf of the Sanford Police Department.
