Cheat Sheet - Stop! We Need to Understand Why Wilson Did It

As protests hit 170 cities, America is running the risk of ignoring what happened between Michael Brown and Darren Wilson. Michael Daly writes we need to understand what happened between them before we can begin to change how we police ourselves.
There was enough evidence to persuade a grand jury that Darren Wilson should not be tried for killing Michael Brown. However, says Jacob Siegel, there are still host of unresolved questions about everything from inconsistencies in police accounts to whether the prosecutor was trying to avoid an indictment.

Thousands of Americans across the nation, from New York to Los Angeles, have taken to the streets to protest a Ferguson grand jury's decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson for any crime in the killing of Michael Brown. A day after St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announced there would be no criminal charges against Wilson for the fatal shooting, protests erupted in more than 170 U.S. cities. In city after city, people thronged the streets chanting slogans and demanding change and justice. In New York City, multiple protests developed: Demonstrators marched on Times Square, Union Square, and other sites, saying they wanted to "take back the streets." In Ferguson itself, 2,200 National Guard troops were deployed to protect and back up police trying to cope with increasingly hostile protesters, and authorities reported at least 44 arrests.


After a long battle, the EPA is prepared to release on Wednesday significant regulations working to curb emissions of ozone, the smog-causing pollutant that has been linked to asthma, heart disease, and premature death. The proposed regulation will lower the current threshold for ozone, which is 75 parts per billion, to a range of 65 to 70 parts per billion. Environmental groups had sought 60 parts per billion. Led by Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the incoming majority leader, the Republican-controlled Congress has said it will block and overturn all new EPA regulations focused on cleaner air.

The 2016 primary in the Democratic Party may be less about the nominee and more about who will be Hillary Clinton's campaign manager. David Freedlander reports on the three favorites—Robby Mook, Guy Cecil, and Stephanie Schriock—and how each would shape her run
