Megyn Kelly and Chris Stirewalt tonight discussed Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon’s call for “vigorous prosecution” in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

“He echoed the call of the protesters. The call of the protesters is ‘arrest him,’ and he said ‘vigorously prosecute,’” Stirewalt said.

“That is not the way our justice system works, and he knows damn well that’s the case. He knows it!” Kelly said. “He has a responsibility as the chief executive of that state to not stoke the fire, Chris. Is he that worried about his own political hide that he’s going to endanger this officer’s life further?”

Kelly called Nixon’s remarks “an irresponsible and outrageous statement to make.” She said he must walk back his remarks and apologize.
