Jacqueline Neely Gilbert How does a tenured police officer doesn’t know her side arm from her taser? Our mothers have to have “The Talk” with our beautiful brown boys. This happens when we don’t.
Gallivanting The Law is the Law and this is harassment, the Judge was fair and square, Kim Potter made a mistake, she will spend 24 months in prison. These protesters don’t respect the rule of law, end of story!
