Will it Matter if Ferguson Police Chief Resigns?

What difference will it make in Ferguson, MO if police chief Thomas Jackson resigns? None at all, says CNN Legal Analyst Mel Robbins.

“What the folks that are protesting are upset about is that there hasn’t been an indictment.”

CNN Law Enforcement Analyst and former FBI Assistant Director Tom Fuentes agrees.

“Whether he resigns, or is fired, won’t matter at the end of the day if Wilson isn’t arrested, prosecuted and jailed for shooting Michael Brown. Nothing less will appease anybody.”

Fuentes says police should be preparing for violence around the country if Wilson isn’t indicted.

“They better be stocking up because they’ve been told this is going to happen.”

Lava Flow Inches Closer to Homes in Hawaiian Community

With a mixture of resignation and dread, residents here are watching this gray and orange advance, this 2,000-degree river of molten rock.

Each passing hour, lava from Kilauea Volcano is inching closer to their homes in Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island.

The dark ooze has swallowed up fences, flowed over a cemetery and neared major roads. In some places, in this community of about 950 residents, it's chest high.

"Everybody, including myself, is quite nervous," Rod Macland told CNN affiliate KITV-TV. "We don't know. We can't see the future. The flow does what the flow does."

By early Tuesday, the lava was about 70 yards from the closest home and moving in a northeast direction. It was flowing 8 to 11 yards per hour, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said.

Hawaii officials haven't issued a mandatory evacuation yet. But many residents have already chosen to leave on their own.

"Most people have vacated," Hawaii County civil defense worker Franchesca Martin-Howe told CNN affiliate KHON-TV. "They have moved out of their homes. There's only a few people left."

Five Things to Know for Your New Day – Tuesday, October 28, 2014

There's more good news on the fight against Ebola in America, ISIS shows another propaganda video with a Western hostage, and a homeless man shows that talent can be found anywhere.

It's Tuesday, and here are the "5 things to know for your New Day."

1. EBOLA

Keep calm and carry on: Even though most Americans think there will be another Ebola diagnosis in the coming weeks, the majority are pretty sure the government can prevent a nationwide epidemic, according to the latest CNN/ORC International poll. And while an infected doctor remains hospitalized in New York, a quarantined nurse who said her rights were being violated in New Jersey was released after proving - once again - she didn't have the virus.
