    Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has called for the formation of a panel to study the social and economic conditions that have fueled ongoing unrest in the wake of this summer’s killing of Michael Brown Jr. by a police officer in Ferguson.

    Nixon announced plans for a so-called Ferguson Commission on Tuesday during remarks at the Florissant Valley Community College, not far from where Brown was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9.

    Nixon said the commission would conduct a “thorough, wide-ranging and unflinching study” on the conditions underscored by the fallout to Brown’s death, would tap experts to address concerns identified by the commission and offer specific recommendations for making the region “a stronger, fairer place for everyone to live.”
