ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson talked exclusively with FOX 2. As the grand jury decision looms in the Michael Brown case, fears about possible reactions are on the rise.

Captain Johnson has been at the forefront of the law enforcement response to protests. While walking a fine line, Captain Johnson is trying to keep things peaceful. He is also allowing protestors to express their anger with what they feel is an unfair justice system.

"I don't believe that whatever comes out of the grand jury is going to heal all things. everybody talks about this wound that's never been closed.  if our nation is ever going to get better, the wound has to close.  but that wound is not a black and white wound.  that wound's about people that are poor, people that are poorly educated, so that wound contains a lot of things in our culture." said Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol.
