Regarding those protests:
I spoke with Mr. Hylton’s family this morning to express my condolences & listen. This is a tragedy – a family & our community are mourning the death of a young man. As details become available, it’s incumbent on the Executive to ensure a transparent & expedient investigation. https://t.co/KoUxsDQRxu
