CNN’s Don Lemon: National Guard Used ‘N-Word’ to Describe Ferguson Protesters (Mediaite)

CNN’s Don Lemon was back in the CNN studio Tuesday night after several days on the ground in Ferguson, Missouri. The anchor was hosting a town hall called “Black and White in America,” when one questioner asked what “safeguards” police departments could put in place to prevent shootings like the one that killed Michael Brown in the future.

When one of Lemon’s panelists brought up the idea of putting cameras on officers to make them more accountable, Lemon said that measure might also affect the types of people who decide to become cops.
