7:08 am
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.
7:09 am
>> 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. and now to dan harris. >> great to see you. new security concerns at the white house overnight. just as president obama was wrapping up his immigration speech, the secret service arrested a woman carrying a holstered handgun near the north fence in a protest. this is a day after the secret service arrested a suspicion man parked near the white house with a rifle in his car. he is facing weapons charges.
