Pith reached out to Nashville Congressman Jim Cooper for his thoughts and he sent along a statement last night:
Michael Brown’s tragic death deserves a thorough investigation. In the meantime, the authorities shouldn’t bully protesters and reporters. Excessive force has no place in America.
In Nashville and across the country yesterday, people demonstrated in solidarity with those in Missouri demanding answers and justice for the slain teenager. With the highway patrol taking over law enforcement, and the armored vehicles and snipers removed from the streets, there was calm in Ferguson last night for the first time since Brown's death. But there are still very few answers.
