“We’re at a march for Black lives, and we’re to talk about the fact that they matter, and there’s machine guns,” she said. “Big ones. And aggression. The cops weren’t so aggressive but their stance is aggressive. They’re on rooftops, they’re in cars, they’re in tanks, and I haven’t ever seen that show of force… at other protests.”

Pompeo also spoke out in support of the George Floyd protests over the weekend, commending ABC for their statement on the issue and calling on other companies to join the chorus calling for meaningful change in the policing of Black communities.
