Obama to people of Ferguson: Let's seek to heal each other

Attorney General Eric Holder will travel to Ferguson, Mo., Wednesday, President Obama announced Monday.   Mr. Obama, back in Washington for two days of meetings in the middle of his vacation, spoke directly to the people of Ferguson in remarks to reporters in the White House briefing room. “So to a community in Ferguson that is rightly hurting and looking for answers, let me call once again for us to seek some understanding rather than simply holler at each other,” Obama said.  “Let’s seek to heal rather than to wound each other.” The president also sought to put some perspective on the dramatic footage coming out of Ferguson, a majority-black St. Louis suburb of 21,000 residents.
