It took her almost three weeks, but likely 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton finally said something about the shooting and killing of Michael Brown and what’s transpired since.
She said she was heartbroken by Brown’s funeral, and added she also grieves for the community of Ferguson. Clinton, who was in San Francisco for a conference, called out the militarized of police on Ferguson streets, which she says looked "like a warzone." She also praised community leaders, young demonstrators and "decent and respectful law enforcement officers."
She then explicitly addressed the institutional racism of the entire criminal justice system–from traffic stops to prison sentences.
