Does Missouri case mirror Trayvon Martin?

President Barack Obama is calling the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown "heartbreaking". He also addressed the anger over Brown's death- anger that has exploded into chaos and violence- saying

"I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding. we should comfort each other and talk with one another in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds."

Monday night, for the second night in a row, police faced off against protesters - using tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse crowds.

Some people say Michael Brown's shooting, and its aftermath, invokes memories of Trayvon Martin. Did the Martin case influence the community's reaction?

David Mattingly has the report.
