Missouri House Speaker, Tim Jones, recently released the following statement regarding the Ferguson shooting:

“My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Michael Brown and with the entire community of Ferguson during this trying time.  This tragic loss has caused a great deal of pain.  Everyone deserves a clear picture of what led to this situation, and I am hopeful that the local and federal investigations will produce a transparent, complete picture of all the facts that led to this tragedy.  I stand ready, willing and able to lend whatever assistance I can to the community and to my many family members, friends and colleagues in and around the Ferguson community.”
