Obama: ‘No Sympathy’ for Those Resorting to Violence Over Ferguson

President Obama last evening appeared to toughen his stance against rioting and looting in the wake of Monday’s grand jury decision in Ferguson, Mo., saying he has “no sympathy” for such violence.

“I’ve never seen a civil rights law or a health care bill or an immigration bill result because a car got burned,” Obama said in Chicago, in what appeared to be an aside from prepared remarks.

Instead, the president said, protesters should mobilize and organize to bring about change peacefully and constructively. His comments drew kudos from some conservative commentators, among them Stephen Hayes and Charles Krauthammer.

Obama departed from remarks on immigration to talk about the looting, arson and gunshots that occurred after the announcement that the grand jury would not indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, 28, in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18.

  2. Obama being soft on Muslims allowing them to be here caused what he is complaining about. Muslims call destruction good.
