Black Americans continue to be gunned down by police. It's not happening in Howard County but you can bet it affects people who live here. How could it not?
You could be reading a book or dealing with a broken down car and you can be considered to be a threat and summarily executed. This is not okay.
We have laws in our country. There's a reason we have them. And putting someone to death on the spot for perceived threat is not what we, as Americans, should stand for.
This absolutely has to stop, and I have no earthly idea how to make it stop.
I'm not grateful today. I'm sick, and sad, and angry.
