President Obama Responds To Grand Jurys Indictment Decision

President Obama: We "Need To Accept" Grand Jury's Decision

President Obama issues a statement on the Furgeson Grand Jury decision. He took immediately to try and convince the people to stray away from any violent protesting in response to the decision by the Grand Jury not to indict the Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old unarmed Michael Brown, Jr.
President Obama spoke in the need to respect the law but also urged the people to follow the request of Browns family for peace by quoting Michael Brown Sr in saying:

"…hurting others or destroying property is not the answer. No matter what the grand jury decides, I do not want my son's death to be in vain. I want it to lead to incredible change, positive change, change that makes the St. Louis region better for everyone. We live here together, this is our home. We're stronger united. Continue to lift your voices with us and let's work together to heal and to create lasting change for all people regardless of race."
