FERGUSON — One of the most anticipated and most important African American moment since Mather Luther King Jr. It all started out with a shooting which resulted in a young man named Michael Brown — who was shot dead by a white police officer. The case has sparked a massive racial battle in America.
President Obama has addressed the nation and asks for everyone to keep the protests ‘peaceful’ and to respect the Grand jury’s decision.
We are a nation built on the rule of law so we have to accept this decision was the grand jury’s to make,” Obama said.
“I join Michael’s parents in asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully,” he added. “Michael Brown’s parents have lost more than anyone. We should honor their decision.”
“In too many parts of this country a deep distrust exists between law enforcement and communities of color,” he said. But, he added, “there’s never an excuse for violence.”
