He said, "We have a full road map of products to help build groups a community, help build a more informed society, help keep our communities safe, and we have a lot more to do here. We are reminded of this, this week, by the tragedy in Cleveland. And our hearts go out to the family and friends of Robert Godwin Sr., and we have a lot of work and we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening.”
