New Fear: What Happens In Ferguson If No Charges?

Updated: Friday, August 22 2014, 02:18 PM CDT

Calm has come to Ferguson, Missouri, after nights of violent unrest over the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. But a crucial question lingers: What happens if the grand jury considering the case doesn't return a charge against the officer?

The fear among some local residents and officials is that such an outcome could stoke new anger and violence.

U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill told The Associated Press she's pushing for federal and local investigations to be completed around the same time so that all evidence can be made public. It's a step many consider important should prosecutors decide not to charge the officer.

Her office said Friday the Department of Justice hasn't given a timeline for the federal investigation of the Aug. 9 shooting.
