Woman, 4-year-old girl bond over Black Lives Matter

Description:

When 4-year-old Camryn Radcliff shouted "Black Lives Matter" in a store, she ended up making a friend. Now, the two Denver residents are working to change the world together.


President Trump and Joe Biden traded barbs at Tuesday's debate over the Black Lives Matter movement, protests across the nation for Breonna Taylor, and race in America.
The southern US state of North Carolina is the archetypal swing state, which could decide the result of the November 3 presidential election. Its student-packed cities are more liberal, while the countryside tends to be conservative. This year the African-American vote could be decisive, with police brutality towards Black people a crucial issue in voters' minds. Protests have taken place in the cities of Charlotte and Raleigh in recent months. Our reporters went to meet local voters, from Black Lives Matter activists to police officers. We also meet the mayor of Charlotte, Vi Lyles.

UK-made anti-riot gear has been widely used in America during clashes with Black Lives Matter protesters, despite the government's claim there is "no evidence" British equipment was used, Sky News has found.

In a joint investigation with The Guardian, Bellingcat and Lighthouse Reports, riot shields made in England were found to have been used by at least six different US law enforcement agencies across three states.

The shields, intended to protect officers, have been used by US police in confrontations with protesters, journalists and passers-by - including a 67-year-old cancer patient who walks with a cane who had to seek medical help.
