Here we go again America with protest over an armed black man with a gun being killed by police. Funny thing is that Hillary was sceduled to have an event in Charlotte and suddenly cancels the rally, then soon after chaos follows with a black person killed by police. Curiosity would be to question why would Hillary cancel an event, where just hours after the cancellation chaos follows in the streets of Charlotte, NC? Did Hillary put something in play to take press coverage off of her deteriorating support and health coverage in America? Fact is this man was armed running around a neighborhood showing his gun...Good kill by police...But is Hillary connected?
