The news was not taken well by people of all races in America, and many took to social media to voice their disappointment and frustration. Kobe Bryant was one of those who gave his views on Twitter:

With something that affects black men across America, expect many other athletes and celebrities in all walks of life to have their views on this subject. Whether or not it sparks change in a system many believe to be flawed remains to be seen. But it will surely allow many to speak out.
