Hillary Clinton on Monday called for an end to the "madness" after the death of three law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, condemning a series of recent shootings involving police and vowing to hold those who kill police officers legally accountable.Clinton also acknowledged that the violence has gone both ways, pointing out the socio-economic disparities that have plagued the African-American community to the nearly uniformly black audience.Campaigning 250 miles south from where Republicans gathered for the first day of the party's national convention in Cleveland, Clinton poked at presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's decision not to speak at the NAACP convention.Trump's strategy in Rust Belt states like Ohio is to maximize both white turnout and his share of that vote, while presuming that Clinton simply cannot match Obama's performance in the black community.
