Hillary Clinton was in New York recently campaigning in front of black congregations at local churches.
There she told audiences that she believes the nation’s police officers need to be re-trained.
Clinton was endorsed by Nicole Bell, wife of Sean Bell, a man who was killed by the NYPD in 2005. No officers were found guilty of any wrongdoing in the incident.
“Today, I was endorsed by this beautiful young woman, Nicole Bell, whose fiancé was killed by the police right before she was to be married. When I was a Senator, I tried to help. I tried to stand up about what had happened,” the former secretary of state said at the Brown Memorial Baptist Church in Clinton Hill, NY.
Clinton says “police reform” is one of her big issues, but she’s light on specifics.
“Hillary will make new investments to ensure law enforcement officials are properly trained on issues like implicit bias, conflict resolution, and use of force so they’re equipped to protect their own safety and the safety of others,” it says on her campaign site.
