“What’s gone on here over the last few days is not what Missouri is about. It’s not what Ferguson is about. This is a place where people work, go to school, raise their families, go to church. But lately it’s looked a little bit more like a war zone and that’s unacceptable.”
— Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Ferguson, Mo., where unarmed teen Michael Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson. He was quoted by USA Today.
