"The death of Michael Brown is heartbreaking, and Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to his family." —Obama http://t.co/j9R08mf0Zq
President Obama called the police shooting death of an unarmed black teenager a tragedy and called for thoughtful response after two nights of violent protests, looting, arrests and tear gas in a St. Louis suburb.
He promised a full investigation by the US Department of Justice into the case, which has provoked outrage in the largely African-American town of Ferguson where police have not released the shooter's name, citing security concerns and death threats.
I know the events of the past few days have prompted strong passions, but ... I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding.
