As protests continue to move through the cities of North Carolina following the death of Keith Lamont Scott, Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is speaking out.
Clinton took to Twitter on Wednesday to respond to the recent police killings of Scott and Terence Crutcher. The 68-year-old former First Lady named the two victims and added that “this has got to end.”
Clinton’s basic tweet, however, lead many social media users to question what Clinton’s plan for action will be. Yes, this needs to stop, but what will she do?
Terence Crutcher was shot and killed last Friday in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by a white police officer who thought the 40-year-old was a threat. Terence, who was apparently having car troubles and was outside of his car, had his hands up and was unarmed.
On Tuesday, Keith Lamont Scott was shot and killed by a Black officer outside his apartment complex in North Carolina. The officer, a two-year veteran with the police force, was looking for a suspect with an outstanding warrant in the same complex, but instead, had an encounter with Scott, who apparently got out of his car with a gun.
