@RepJohn Lewis Calls For #MartialLaw in #Ferguson | MSNBC

Congressman John Lewis – a recognized leader of the Civil Rights Movement – spoke out Thursdayon the police violence in Ferguson, Missouri, during an msnbc interview saying President Obama should use the authority of his office to declare martial law to “federalize the Missouri national guard to protect people as they protest.”

“People should come together, reasonable elected officials, community leaders, and address what is happening there … If we fail to act the fires of frustration and discontent will continue to burn not only in Missouri but all across America,” Lewis said on “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”
