Governor Chris Christie has weighed in on the decision that cleared police officer Darren Wilson from being indicted for the shooting of Michael Brown.
Christie and his wife Mary Pat were serving food at St. John’s Soup Kitchen in Newark the day before Thanksgiving when the governor gave his opinion.
Christie said the US has deep national anxiety and needs leadership. “I think the country needs more leadership and more direction and less division,” Christie said, according to an Associated Press report on NBC 10 Philadelphia. “So on Thanksgiving when everyone's thinking about what they're thankful for, hopefully they can also pray for some leadership in the country that'll be strong to help bring people together."
In reference to President Barack Obama, Christie said he shares the blame. Christie said, according to the AP report, "I'm suggesting lots of people have responsibility for that ... not just the president. He's just one of them."
