Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay and Missouri Department of Public Safety Director Dan Isom addressed the public during a press conference Nov. 24 at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. The leaders urged calm and restraint in advance of a grand jury decision on the case involving Darren Wilson, a Ferguson (Mo.) police officer. Isom (pictured below at the lectern) is also a UMSL criminology professor and alumnus.

Nixon and Isom returned to campus on Nov. 25 to announce the governor’s orders for additional Missouri National Guardsmen to Ferguson.
