Hillary Clinton, a potential 2016 US presidential candidate, has weighed in for the first time on the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager, saying America can do better. The August 9 killing of Michael Brown, 18, and the subsequent crackdown on demonstrators in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson revived a debate about race in the United States and sparked condemnation of police tactics and militarization. We are better than that," Clinton said in San Francisco Thursday amid criticism for having stayed silent on the subject.
