I haven’t read the book and clearly it goes beyond Sandra Bland but her story brings to mind a fundamental philosophy of mine. No victim, no crime. Every interaction with the police. no matter how trivial the offence, can end with someone’s death and we will most likely read, “Our internal investigation found that the officer acted within department guidelines.” If you think it only pertains to black people you aren’t paying attention.

Retired and living my golden years in a world full of angry people.
