Quotes

"There's a sense of urgency that we do something now," said Councilwoman Helen Holton . "If we wait and study … it's time gone by that we've not acted. Sometimes you have to step out on faith and know it's for the good of the people. If you don't act, and you keep planning and planning and planning, you're missing the opportunity."
"We've received a tremendous response," Ciminelli said. "We've gotten letters from kids with one or two dollars all the way up to larger donations. We are truly, truly appreciative of all the help people want to give this family."
"That's when you have the greatest opportunity to educate them to risks they're going to face, to identify those challenges, and provide the resources to them that are going to allow them to steer themselves in a direction that will keep them out of trouble down the road" explains Hanson
"They may forget to turn on the body cam. I want to make sure there are rules and regulations" NAACP Charlotte President Kojo Nantambu said
