Obama Careful in Talking About Police Shooting

President Obama is choosing his words carefully when talking about the police shooting of Michael Brown last week in Ferguson, MO, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Said one White House aide: "His words can't heal things overnight -- centuries of racial history and decades of economic unwinding take time to repair. But if his words are careless, they can inflame the situation, and he knows that."
