Cam Newton Speaks Out on Police Shootings: ‘People Need to Be Held Accountable’

NFL Quarterback Cam Newton opened up about the recent police shooting in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Carolina Panther's leader said that his high profile position can be seen as a "lose-lose", and that he will be criticized whether he does or doesn't speak out. However, he did said that people do need to be held accountable for their actions. Newton said: “I’m a firm believer of justice and a firm believer of doing the right thing, and I can’t repeat enough about just holding people accountable." He added: “I’m an African-American. I am not happy with how justice has been dealt with over the years.”
