Transcript for Michael Brown's Father Urges Peaceful Protests
And now to Ferguson, Missouri. Two protesters arrested last night waiting for the grand jury rule. And Michael brown's father is speaking out, asking for peace. Steve osunsami has the story. Reporter: Overnight, protesters fought with police here in Ferguson for the second night in a row. At least two people arrested. Stop resisting. Reporter: The streets starting to light up ahead of the big decision. Will the grand jury charge police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael brown? And this morning, a new public service announcement from brown's father, urging his son's supporters to respond peacefully. But hurting others and drying property is not the answer. No matter what the grand jury decides, I do not want my son's death to be in vain. The officer was Darren Wilson. Reporter: We're hearing from the police chief at the center of the racially-charged firestorm. The boss, the Ferguson police chief, don Jackson. We're preparing for the worse, but we're hoping the leadership coming out to protest, if they do, is going to try to keep it peaceful. Reporter: Some of the worst fighting with police has happened here, right outside his window. The shooting death of Michael brown, he says, changing the city forever. It's a dicey situation right now. Reporter: Despite rumors, he says he's not quitting. I have a mission to complete. Reporter: What's your mission? I want to see the department come through on the other side better. I want to see the community come out better, and the nation. The police chief here has taken a great deal of criticism in this case but made clear to me no matter the decision from the grand jury, Michael brown's death will remain a tragic situation for everyone involved here, including police. Hopefully everyone will listen to what Michael brown's father had to say about peace regardless of the grand jury. Possibly this weekend.
