President Obama Issues A Statement On The Death Of Michael Brown

People are still heart broken by the tragic death of Michael Brown. President Obama has finally spoken out about the death of Michael Brown and all the craziness that's taken place in Ferguson, Missouri.

"The death of Michael Brown is heartbreaking, and Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to his family and his community at this very difficult time. As Attorney General Holder has indicated, the Department of Justice is investigating the situation along with local officials, and they will continue to direct resources to the case as needed. I know the events of the past few days have prompted strong passions, but as details unfold, I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding. We should comfort each other and talk with one another in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds. Along with our prayers, that’s what Michael and his family, and our broader American community, deserve."

Let's keep Mike's family in our prayers!
