ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Orlando, Florida on Wednesday said the recent shooting deaths of black men by police were unbearable. "We have two more names to add to a list of African-Americans killed by police officers in these encounters. It's unbearable, and it needs to become intolerable," She added. Authorities in Charlotte, North Carolina, braced for a possible second night of rioting triggered by the police killing of a black man who refused commands to drop a handgun that officers said he was brandishing. Sixteen police were injured overnight on Tuesday and one person was arrested as officers in riot gear clashed with protesters who threw stones, set fires and briefly blocked an interstate highway. The trouble in Charlotte unfolded as demonstrators in Tulsa, Oklahoma, demanded the arrest of a police officer seen on video fatally shooting an unarmed black man who had his hands in clear view at the time.
