Barack Obama spoke out Monday night urging the Ferguson rioters to protest peacefully for the sake of the family of Michael Brown.
In his speech, the President made little mention of the fact that the American justice system found Officer Darren Wilson innocent of the murder of Michael Brown. Instead, he spoke from the perspective of the parents of Michael Brown’s parents, expressing that the rioters should protest, albeit peacefully.
This speech from Obama comes as no surprise, since the President has often expressed sympathy for the Ferguson rioters in the past, even urging them to continue with their violent protests.
