I’m diving into these stories remembering the lives of people of color lost to police brutality and murder.
“Excessive force” is coming up a lot.
The need for a grown man trained in tactical police maneuvers to physically put his entire weight on a black woman of average stature, breaking her sternum and causing her death
can only be triggered by
either fear,
or lust for power,
or the intense combination of both, and more than those things.

All are heart and world- breaking.

We must socially conquer fear and lust for force. Power can be healthy, but a desire to use force and conquer is
antiquated.

The paradox lives on. And we do.

And if I scroll down far enough I can
click on an article called
“15 Child Stars Who Grew Up Hot.”
