It's pretty much everywhere and if you're not thinking about the Ferguson decision and all things related, I'm not sure I can talk to you right now. The evening of the decision was disheartening all around and may have been doomed to be so. That evening I faced the fact that growing up, I had an innate tendency to give police officers or anyone in authority, the benefit of the doubt in most situations. In similar ways that parents and guardians expect me to teach so their kid will learn and grow, I expect police to do the work of keeping our streets safe, which undoubtedly can include degrees of violence and confrontations.
