Clinton says in her first major policy address as a presidential candidate that the violence in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray shows the need for the U.S. to find balance again in its criminal justice system.
Gray, a 25-year-old black man, suffered a spinal-cord injury while in police custody in Baltimore.
The Democrat says the nation needs to "come to terms with some hard truths about race and justice in America."
In a speech at Columbia University, Clinton is calling for reforms to the criminal justice system, including the addition of body cameras to every police department in the country.
