Obama promises to ensure ‘justice is done’ in Michael Brown shooting
Michael Brown shooting
Vowing to see that “justice is done” for slain teenager Michael Brown, President Obama appealed for calm Thursday from police and demonstrators clashing in Ferguson, Missouri.
“Let’s remember that we’re all part of one American family,” Obama said in a measured, even businesslike, tone from the Martha’s Vineyard resort island where he has been spending a family vacation.
“Now is the time for healing. Now is the time for peace and calm on the streets of Ferguson. Now is the time for an open and transparent process to see that justice is done,” he added. “Put simply, we all need to hold ourselves to a high standard, particularly those of us in positions of authority.”
