CHICAGO, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday called for "peace and calm" in Ferguson, as five days of racially charged protests gripped the St. Louis suburb of Missouri following the shooting death on Saturday of an unarmed 18-year-old black man by the police.
"Now is the time for healing, now is the time for peace and calm on the streets of Ferguson," Obama said in a televised statement from Martha's Vineyard where he is on vacation."
Meanwhile, he urged an open and transparent investigation into the shooting of the teenager, Michael Brown, adding there was no excuse for the police to use excessive force against peaceful demonstrators or to arrest them.
Obama said he has tasked the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation with investigating the death of Michael Brown along with local officials on the ground.
"When something like this happens Brewers Jonathan Lucroy Jersey , the local police have a responsibility to be open and transparent about how they are investigating that death and how they are protecting the people in the communities," he said. "There's also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their first amendment rights."
Obama also spoke out against the arrests of two American journalists by police Wednesday, one from the Washington Post, the other from the Huffington Post, while working inside a MocDonald's. The two, who were later released without charges or an explanation, said they were treated brutally by the police.
"In the United States of America, people should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs Brewers Francisco Rodriguez Jersey , and report to the American people on what they see on the ground," Obama said.
Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man from the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson and just a few days from starting technical school, was killed by multiple gunshots fired by a police officer when he walked down the street with a friend on Saturday afternoon.
The circumstances surrounding the shooting are in dispute. Local police chief Thomas Jackson said a side of the officer's face was swollen from what the police said a struggle in which Brown assaulted the officer and tried to take his gun, an account contradicting the words of witnesses, who said Brown was unarmed and had raised his hands to surrender before the final, fatal shots were fired.
Despite calls from the public and press alike, the Ferguson Police Department has declined to release the name of the officer Brewers Eric Thames Jersey , citing safety concerns for the officers and his family, only to brew wider public angry and frustration.
Several bouts of protests over the shooting have erupted in Ferguson following the teen's death, and the situation between local law enforcement and the African-American community is tense.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, who arrived at Ferguson to assess the situation, assured residents on Thursday that "We must make sure that justice prevail." He also promised Ferguson residents were going to see a different tone in the response by the police who fired tear gas and rubber bullets on protesters.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch released a post on Wednesday, saying Ferguson police are much more likely to stop, search and arrest African-American drivers than white ones.
In 2013, blacks Brewers Corey Knebel Jersey , who make up a little less than two-thirds of the driving-age population in the North County city, accounted for 86 percent of all stops. When stopped, they were almost twice as likely to be searched as whites and twice as likely to be arrested, it said.

NAIROBI, June 29 (Xinhua) -- The elderly woman labored as she walked, her hand holding firmly on her walking stick as she made calculated steps eager to reach a seat a few meters away.
About four minutes later, without help that she had turned down, she reached the seat near her house in Mukuru slum Brewers Aramis Ramirez Jersey , Nairobi, sat and put her hand on her waist and murmured of how it was aching.
Jane Wangare is among the many elderly women living in the slum and several others in Nairobi, which include Korogocho, Kibera, Mathare, Kawangware, Kibera and Kiambiu.
They make a sizeable number of people in the informal settlements. However, while some of the elderly persons stay with their children or grandchildren Brewers Aaron Hill Jersey , majority are on their own.
The hard slum life in the Kenyan slums has taken a toll on the senior citizens. Just as other residents, the elderly persons, particularly those who stay alone, have to struggle to make ends meet.
They have to look for food, clothing, water and health services, things that are not easy to come by. They also have to contend with increased crime, some which is targeted at them.
""If it was my wish I would relocate from this slum because life is very difficult but where do I go? This is the place I call home. I have nowhere else to go Wily Peralta Jersey ,"" said Wangare on Saturday.
The 75-year-old, who has lived most of her life in the slum, said she is among those who started the settlement.
""When I moved here, I was then working at a factory in Industrial Area. Then we were not many of us and life was a little better but over time, the slum has expanded as the population increases making life difficult,"" she said.
The slum hosts over 150,000 people, with shanties standing on every space leaving little room for access roads.
""Those narrow roads need people who do not walk with sticks. For me it is a tough job walking out of my house to the shop or even to sit outside. The filth is also too much Will Middlebrooks Jersey ,"" said Wangare, who lives at the mercy of well-wishers.
Her failing health, which has been worsened by high blood pressure and diabetes, compounds her problems.
Seventy-eight-year-old Frida Mukami, who lives alone in Lunga Lunga, a neighboring slum, shares a similar predicament.
