Barack Obama said that people protesting US deserve support.

Former US President Barack Obama on Monday said that people protesting US deserve support and called for political solutions to address their grievances about criminal justice.

"The protests represent a genuine and legitimate frustration over a decades-long failure to reform police practices and the broader criminal justice system. We should condemn the few who resort to violence-not the overwhelming majority who deserve our respect and support," Obama tweeted.

"The point of protest is to raise public awareness, to put a spotlight on injustice, and to make the powers that be uncomfortable. But eventually, we have to translate those aspirations into specific laws and institutional practices," he added.
