King Dismisses Racial Profiling in Ferguson

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said the African-American community in Ferguson, Mo., should "settle down" and "straighten up and fly right," the Des Moines Register reports.

He was also dismissive that racial profiling lead to distrust between residents and police.

Said King: "I've seen the video. It looks to me like you don't need to bother with that particular factor because they all appear of a single origin, I should say, a continental origin might be the way to phrase that."
