85 Nights of Protest


Since the protests began 85 days ago, I have been filled with revolutionary zeal that our system of public safety and law enforcement needed dramatic change. Although this thought is still forefront, the length and ambiguity of night after night of protest is beginning to worry me.

Local Black leaders have called on the most extreme protesters to focus on Black Lives Matter issues and avoid confrontations – to no avail.

I worry that the momentum the activism this summer has brought will be squandered and the public will demand that the police get even more money because it is clear that no matter how awful they are the alternative is worse.
