The Rev. Charles Robinson speaks about the suicide ruling in the death of Chicago Public School Board President Michael Scott at Chicago's Holy Starlight Missionary Baptist Church today. More than two dozen ministers and activists gathered to question the medical examiner's ruling that Scott, who was found in a Chicago river Monday with a single gunshot wound to the head, committed suicide. They're calling on state and federal authorities to look into the death. Local police are still investigating.
