NAACP President condemns violence after Michael Brown's death

NAACP National President, Cornell William Brooks, speaks with Carol about the death of Michael Brown, and the effect it's having on the St. Louis community.

When asked what he would say to potential looters, Mr. Brooks said, "According to Michael Brown's family, this was a young man who never got into a fight, who was non-violent, who had a wonderful sense of humor, and the best way to honor this young man’s memory is by seeking justice non-violently. Let's be clear here, Martin Luther King did not live and die so that the grandsons and granddaughters of the civil rights revolution might seek justice violently. We don't have to do that. We can do so in a non-violent fashion. Most of the young people in these communities have been seeking justice airing their grievances in a constructive way. We need to continue to do that. The NAACP is working with these young people to do that."
