Sixteen Examples of What's Wrong

Go to this New York Times page and watch all 16 videos. See if you don't think something is wrong and that we need change, we need justice, for all, in our nation. Sixteen times an American was shot down and killed--or strangled, in the case of Eric Garner--without being arrested, charged and tried.

The Videos That Are Putting Race 

and Policing Into Sharp Relief

"Qui tacet consentit":

"Silence gives consent".

Yes, unequivocally, police have a tough job, no doubt about it. I'm the first to admit it.

But they, we, can't react only and immediately with guns, with shooting, first, any and every time they fear. We can't be tried and condemned, both, right on our streets, immediately.

They can't live like that.

Clearly, we Americans can't live like that.
