This is the take on the same story from the Atlanta Black Star: Should Not Be Policing the Streets.
The long and the short of it is this: A white, male police officer has been filmed manhandling Nikkita Brown, a Black woman, late at night while she was walking her dog.
The officer has not been named, but has been put on administrative leave. As stated in the headline above, this is by no means the first such incident involving this officer.
This is so disgusting. And if you ever wanted to know why I hold the annual Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence, this is a clear example.
We must learn to speak to each other and listen to each other with respect and empathy. Empathy can prevent this kind of incident from occurring - when we have the skills.
