Now that the national media has packed up and left the riots they helped instigate, a Democrat Congressman has decided it’s a good time to issue threats about getting some “justice” in Ferguson, MO. If we didn’t know better, we’d say this crazy talk is inciting a riot.
Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) on Sunday expressed concern that a “problem in the streets” would resurface in Ferguson, Mo., if justice were not served in the police shooting of Michael Brown.
Clay, however, said he does not believe the funeral of Brown taking place Monday has the potential to reignite tensions between protesters and police.
“I’m more concerned if we do not get to the truth and get to what actually happened, and bring justice to this situation, then there is going to be a problem in the streets,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Tensions have calmed in the St. Louis suburb in the last few days, something Clay attributes to Attorney General Eric Holder’s visit.
Clay said he promised the Brown family he would do everything to make the investigation transparent. And he expressed confidence in the FBI review.
What a jerk.
