An opportunity for reflection…


So apparently the St. Louis police union has got its knickers in a twist because some players on the St. Louis Rams raised their hands in a ‘Don’t shoot! I surrender!” stance to protest the death of Michael Brown and the rather deliberate tanking of the grand jury by the D.A. in the case of Darren Wilson.

Rather than demanding apologies or organizing boycotts, may I suggest that they (and other police departments) take a moment and ponder as to why it is that many black men and women believe that the police target them for their race and might  be inclined to gun them down for little to no reason?
