Paul Ryan: Let police do their job in Ferguson

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, August 20, 2014

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.
