Frank – so glad you felt strongly enough to send me a response, but perhaps it would have been prudent to read the article more thoroughly (or, if you did, I apologize if I’m exposing any of your ignorance). I actually wrote this article about the violence of the system and not every single cop. Because the system is violent, every cop is a part of that, whether they have directly participated in one of these heinous acts or not. It’s the system we need to change, not every single individual within it. If you had read the article I’m sure you would have gathered that!

With that being said, though, I’m glad that you decided to share your point of view. As a writer, my job is to make people think and feel something, and clearly you have. I have succeeded with that goal!

Thanks for sharing.
