While the media and the public howled about Cam Newton’s remarks to a female reporter, awaiting an apology, the Panthers QB was at practice. Ian Rapoport goes inside Newton’s response.
“To the reporters, to the journalists, to the moms — super moms — to the daughters, the sisters and the women all around the world, I sincerely apologize,” said Newton, in the clip, which was retweeted 24,000 times and liked 72,000 times. “[I] hope that you can find the kindness of your heart to forgive me. Thank you.”
“I got ’em,” says SLCPD officer Clinton Fox, who shot and killed 50-year-old Patrick Harmon in August during what Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown later referred to as “a routine stop.”
In one of three body-cam videos released, Harmon, standing next to his bicycle can be seen complying after he’s asked to remove his backpack. Seconds later, as he’s about to be handcuffed, he attempts to flee and Fox, one of the three police officers on scene, opens fire.
After being shot three times, Harmon is then tasered and administered first-aid. He was pronounced dead later that night at an area hospital.
