Obama: Ferguson ‘Not an Isolated Incident’

Friday on Sirius XM’s “Urban View” with Joe Madison, in reacting to the news that the Justice Department found that the Ferguson, MO Police Department routinely violated the rights of African-Americans, President Barack Obama said the behavior of Ferguson police is not “isolated.”

The president said, “I don’t think that is typical of what happens across the country but it’s not an isolated incident. I think there are circumstances in which trust between communities and law enforcement have broken down, and individuals or entire departments may not have the training or the accountability to make sure that they are protecting and serving all people and not just some.”
