Charlotte police released dramatic video footage Saturday that shows officers surrounding a black man with his hands at his side before shots are fired and he buckles to the ground. It's unclear if there was anything in the man's hands.

Since 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the anthem before NFL preseason games, citing racial injustice and police brutality, his movement has slowly spread across fields and courts in the U.S.
Colin Kaepernick stopped by a high school football game in Oakland, California Friday to join players in a National Anthem protest and encourage them to “lift each other up.”
When the anthem began before the Castlemont High School game, Kaepernick knelt as players lay on the ground with their hands up in the air—a gesture meant to shine a light on police brutality and racial inequality in the United States.
Speaking to athletes in the locker room ahead of the game, Kaepernick said he attended their game to stand in solidarity with them.
“The same way you’ll took a stand and stood with me, I had to come out here and stand with you’ll,” he said, adding that the athletes should “lift each other up” because “that’s what this is about.”

The Times touted Clinton's record as first lady, New York senator and secretary of state in their endorsement, claiming she has shown the ability to work with politicians from opposing parties to enact her policy agenda. The endorsement only made passing reference to Republican nominee Donald Trump, who "discloses nothing concrete about himself or his plans while promising the moon and offering the stars on layaway," according to the Times.
