Tim Kaine statemen on Ferguson grand jury decision

kaine new2U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement following a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson.

“In light of the grand jury decision not to prosecute officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown, I ask authorities to respect the right of all people to express themselves during this understandably emotional time, as well as urge the people of Ferguson and the nation to respond peacefully and constructively. Going forward, it’s critically important that we do more as a nation to address the tense relationship between law enforcement and local communities that was prevalent well before this tragedy, particularly in communities of color. Our criminal justice system should never give anyone in America reason to doubt its fairness. It’s on us to work through these challenges in Virginia, Missouri and across the country.”
