The House public safety chair agrees with Governor Nixon's decision to declare a state of emergency leading up to the grand jury's decision in Ferguson.
Wrap: House public safety committee chair and paramedic Dave Hinson said that Governor Nixon's approach of declaring a state of emergency and activating the National Guard is the right one when it comes to Ferguson.
|Description: "If it is negative things that are coming down, uh, it's possibly politically motivated. As a public safety person I, you know, I think his decision that he made, uh, is a good one."|
Hinson said a proactive approach is necessary in a situation like this.
