Today, Hillary Clinton called the Mayor of Charlotte Jennifer Roberts and Congresswoman Alma Adams to discuss the recent shooting and protests in Charlotte, N.C., and to offer any assistance during this difficult time. They discussed the steps we must take to ensure that everyone is respected by the law, and everyone has respect for the law. Clinton emphasized the need to come together to stop the violence and restore the bonds of trust between police officers and the communities they serve. As Clinton has said before, too many Black Americans have lost their lives and too many feel that their lives are disposable. There are good, honorable police officers serving their communities across our country, and we must all work together to mend the wounds that exist and build the America we want our children and grandchildren to grow up in.
Protesters by the jail now, getting loud so the inmates can hear. Lots of lights flickering in the windows so I guess they can pic.twitter.com/AY6ywntU54— Andrew Dunn (@andrew_dunn) September 23, 2016

The curfew proclamation has no general exception in it for work or school https://t.co/U6FwQBnoM7— Gerry Cohen (@gercohen) September 23, 2016
Back to Ken.
It would appear that way. It looks like a document copied from a WW2 curfew. But what would I know https://t.co/SUDvcmfp8q— Gerry Cohen (@gercohen) September 23, 2016
Ken says he just got shot at with rubber bullets by police. Meanwhile, Charlotte Observer reporter Katie Peralta says the tear gas has been deployed.

I've only seen one verbal tiff tonight that was quickly broken up near Epicentre. No fist fights, no gunshots. No arrests that I'm aware of— Katie Peralta (@katieperalta) September 23, 2016
Ken got hit with pepper spray.
