I Can’t Breathe

Rant-(website)The news continues to show police using what appears to be excessive force in their dealings with black youth. It has at least two nations inflamed to the point of civil unrest, meaning it’s likely to get worse before it gets better. I’ve already posted my thoughts about the discretionary powers granted to police in the performance of their duties when it comes to violence. But the latest news story about Eric Garner, who died at the hands of the police even though he wasn’t violent, warrants some comment.

See I Can’t Breathe in the Ramblings section of this blog.


About wordswithbrad

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
