The Trayvon Martin shooting bought pain to my heart as if I lost my own son. How could this happen in America after we have made so much progress relating to one another? This type of activity has taken place in several cities in my home area in New York State. “Young and senior black males being shot by white law enforcement officers.” The wall is up now, the “Blue Wall.” As freelance journalist we interface with law enforcement officials, Its not going good. Certain coverage has produced hard feelings. I don’t know any members in law enforcement, I have friends “who are law enforcement.” They protect people, assist others and place themselves at risk in life ending situations.
The emotional painI feel is based on pass history, incidents like what has taken place happen weekly for years. All the good Americans people are asking is, the law must apply it’s machinery and make a comprehensive attempt to address the outrage the people feel.
