Rep. Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, weighed in on the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, saying Tuesday that police must be allowed to finish their investigation into the shooting of a young black man by an officer.
“We should take a deep breath, sit back and let law enforcement do their job,” Mr. Paul said during a radio interview with SiriusXM’s David Webb. “Let the investigation take place so that the facts can be taken as the facts, and let justice be done appropriately.”
He cautioned against a push “to prejudge the outcome of these things.”
The former 2012 vice presidential candidate and potential 2016 presidential candidate did not address concerns over police militarization during the interview.
