Under fire for keeping quiet about the events in Ferguson, Missouri, where an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by a white police officer, Hillary Clinton on Thursday weighed in and called for a “thorough and speedy investigation.”

Clinton was speaking at a technology conference in San Francisco.

“We don’t want to see our streets look like a war zone. Not in America,” Clinton said, according to The Hill. “We are better than that.”

While she praised the “decent and respectful law enforcement officers, who showed what quality law enforcement looked like,” Clinton also said we cannot ignore inequities in our justice system.
