Obama Calls For Calm In Ferguson

(Martha's Vineyard, MA) -- President Obama is calling for calm in a St. Louis suburb rocked by the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer. Speaking yesterday, Obama remarked that there's never an excuse for violence against police or for vandalism and looting. He also said the Justice Department is working with authorities in St. Louis to find ways to protect public safety without restricting the right to protest. Meanwhile, there are reports that police in Ferguson, Missouri are about to release the name of the officer who shot and killed a teenager in the mostly-black St. Louis suburb.
