Ben Carson on Michael Brown Kιlling: Police Have Feelings Too

In the aftermath of police in Ferguson, Missouri gunning down Michael Brown and the riots Dr. Ben Carson3that followed, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly interviewed Ben Carson for his views on the matter. Carson agreed that the case should be fully investigated, but said we should also understand that police officers are people too.

“Now, do we as a society, what do we do? Do we weigh in as the boy’s father and if it were my son I probably would have said the same thing. But he is obviously talking through an emotional prism. The son is deαd. He believes, probably, I know he believes, that it was an injustice, done for nothing. It was a mυrder” said O’Reilly.

Then the host posed the question to Carson.

O’Reilly said that “many African-Americans believe that without knowing the facts” and asked “Do we criticize them or do we remain silent?”

“No. I think we have to speak out and help people to understand that, yes, we feel their pain. You know, how you can possibly even understand how these parents feel? But at the same time we also need to recognize that police are individuals, too,” Carson explained “They have feelings also. And we need to hear from this police officer. You know, [police] — they are trained to shοot to kιll or to shoot to stop. We need to understand why did he decide to shoot to kιll instead of shoot to stop?”

Ben Carson is considering a run for president in 2016, as confirmed by several news magazines.

“I would say we are definitely a step or two closer than we were a year ago,” Carson told the Washington Times when asked about the likelihood of running for president.
