Ferguson police chief: "I think I can see this through"

(CNN) - Police Chief Thomas Jackson - a central figure in the protests that flared in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting of an unarmed black teen - says he has no plans to step down despite mounting calls that he must go.

Saying he "intends to see this thing through," Jackson told CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" on Thursday that he has been working with community leaders and others to create a dialogue in the community.

"Yes, I think I can see this through and come out on the other side with the community, the region and even the country a whole lot better," he said.

Jackson's statements come as the grand jury is expected any day to deliver a decision on whether to indict a white police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Why Bill Cosby sexual assault allegations are resurfacing now

On Friday night, Bill Cosby received a standing ovation in Florida, where he's performing as part of his comedy tour.

The ovation comes as two more Bill Cosby accusers speak out. At least a dozen women have broken their silence.

Bill Cosby facing litany of allegations

There were reports of alleged sexual assault back in 2005, but it wasn't until another comedian recently called out Cosby that women started coming forward with strikingly similar stories.

In a statement released late Friday night, Cosby's attorney, Martin Singer, says

The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity.

These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous, and it is completely illogical that so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years.
It is long past time for this media vilification of Mr. Cosby to stop.

Susan Candiotti reports for OutFront.

Bill Cosby performed in the Bahamas Thursday night. Alina Machado reports on what he said during his routine.

Who is Camille Cosby?

New video shows Bill Cosby recently pressuring an Associated Press reporter not to run an exchange of him being asked about resurfacing rape allegations.

At the end of the interview, Cosby says: "And I would appreciate it if it was scuttled... I think if you want to consider yourself to be serious that it will not appear anywhere."

With his wife by his side, the reporter had asked Cosby about the allegations multiple times. Cosby's response was "No, no, we don't answer that," "there's no response," and "there is no comment about that."

hat part of the interview was held by the AP for two weeks.

During the AP interview, Camille Cosby sat quietly next to her husband while he refused to discuss the rape allegations.

Camille Cosby, another victim of the controversy?

This, though, isn't the first time Camille Cosby has been forced to face questions about her husband's fidelity.

CNN's Susan Candiotti takes a closer look at the woman who has stood beside Bill Cosby.

Cosby accuser: "I didn't know if he was going to kill me or rape me"

Tamara Green was a 19-year-old model when she met Bill Cosby in Los Angeles.

Her story strikingly familiar to other accusers. She alleges, in the 1970s, she was drugged and assaulted by the man who would become America's favorite TV dad, Dr. Huxtable. Cosby and his attorneys have denied the sexual assault claims – he has never been charged with a crime. Due to a health condition, Green did not want to appear on camera. She joined Erin Burnett by phone.
