Hillary Clinton Finally Speaks on Ferguson

Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former United States Secretary of State and US Senator, has finally broken her silence on Ferguson incident. Her first comment on the death of an unarmed 18-year-old black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, has come after 19 days of the incident.

Speaking to technology executives at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco, Hillary Clinton said that the incident has highlighted deep economic challenges and the justice system the nation needs to tackle.

Clinton said that Michael Brown's funeral has broken her heart for his family. She also said that the streets of the nation should not look like warzone.

She has stated that several American families are losing land and hopes. The nation has lost the significant connection between productivity and wage gains, she added.

According to Clinton, this kind of incident happens when the connections of trusts of any community fray. The inequities in justice system could not be ignored, she added.

Several political pundits had condemned Clinton for not saying anything on the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. On August 9, the young black teenager was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. On Thursday, The First Lady of the United States and the former secretary of state admired President Barack Obama's decision to send Attorney General Eric Holder to the St. Louis suburb. She also praised the Justice Department's decision to open a civil rights investigation into the shooting.

Clinton said that the investigation is a significant step to help the community in healing and to check the justice procedure.

Hillary Clinton has planned to return to San Francisco on October 20. She will attend "power women's lunch" at the Fairmont Hotel that could be beneficial for Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
