National Urban League Chief Marc Morial: Police shooting in Ferguson shows people want further change

What the hell is this guy talking about?

During a discussion on MSNBC about the two police officers shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department on Thursday, National Urban League Chief Marc Morial actually said that this shooting shows "people want further change."

"So, there’s a couple of things. There’s a report that I saw that stated that the shots did not come from the protesters. And only an investigation or an inquiry is going to tell the truth about what happened.

"Secondly, and the police department and it’s noteworthy that it was a St. Louis county police department at this scene, seemed to have exercised restraint because sometimes when officers hear shots, there’s a tendency to over react. It doesn’t seem to be any overreaction.

"Having said that, it demonstrates that there’s still tremendous need, demand, for change in Ferguson. That people want further change. And that the resignation of the chief and the city manager are just steps towards the type of change that needs to take place" Morial said.
