“Meet the Press” (08/16/14) – All eyes this week are on Ferguson, Missouri as tensions flare in the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting. We will hear from Gov. Jay Nixon to get an update on the situation on the ground. Rep. John Lewis also joins the program to discuss what the events in Ferguson mean for the larger issue of race in America. NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell serves as guest moderator.

Ferguson Roundtable: Given the reaction to images in Ferguson, what political action will be taken to demilitarize police forces across the country? Why did it take the State government so long to respond to the situation?
