Obama agrees with decision not to charge Darren Wilson in fatal Ferguson shooting
U.S. President Barack Obama said on Friday he fully supported the U.S. Justice Department’s decision not to charge a white police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager last year.
“You can’t just charge him anyway because what happened was tragic,” Obama told a town hall-style meeting in South Carolina.
“That was the decision that was made, and I have complete confidence and stand fully behind the decision that was made by the Justice Department on that issue.”
