FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)-  The Reverend Al says he spoke with St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar Thursday morning and expressed his outrage over arrests made.

“I told Chief Belmar that I was outraged by what I have seen on TV since leaving Feguson and that we must not have excessive force to deal with legitimate protest of excessive force. We want to solve the problem, not create new ones. Even if we disagree this climate is not good for anyone and is dangerous for everyone.” Said Rev. Al Sharpton, President of the National Action Network.

Sharpton has asked the Department of Justice and others to monitor what is going on in Ferguson.
