After the conclusion of President Barack Obama’s town hall meeting Thursday evening, where he addressed race and policing in America, The Undefeated’s senior writer Lonnae O’Neal and ABC’s senior legal correspondent and analyst Sunny Hostin spoke to attendees to gauge their reactions to the president’s responses. Though questions were asked primarily by the family members of victims who were killed by police officers this year, many officers in attendance felt the president’s answers were balanced on both sides of the issue.
“It was powerful,” said Ohio police officer Nakia Jones. “People were listening to each other and I think the president came up with a lot of good solutions. Being on both sides — being a police officer and also being an African-American mother — it was amazing to see all of these people in one room together.”
