"You shouldn't expect it to be released. I'm not going to jeopardize the investigation." — Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney, as authorities in North Carolina's largest city said releasing the footage of Keith Lamont Scott's killing by a police officer could undermine the investigation.


"But I don't think the charge was only to give the crowd some blood. ... No. I think (prosecutors) must have thought charges were warranted." — Phil Turner, a Chicago-based defense attorney, after prosecutors in Tulsa, Oklahoma, charged a white police officer with first-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of an unarmed black motorist.


"I found a change in his personality. His mind was not the same. He had become bad and I don't know what caused it but I informed the FBI about it." — Mohammad Rahami, father of suspected New York City bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami, about how his son changed after visiting Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2013.
