President Barack Obama on Tuesday condemned the violence that erupted in Ferguson in the wake of the decision not to charge a white police officer over the fatal shooting of a black teenager.
"Burning buildings, torching cars, destroying property, putting people at risk ... there's no excuse for it," Obama said, calling for anyone found guilty of involvement to be prosecuted.
"Those are criminal acts," Obama added, while expressing sympathy for minorities who felt laws were not being enforced "uniformly or fairly."
