So, it's been a week. A week of dominating the news. A week of dominating conversation. A week that the snowball has been rolling downhill.
I've been asked my thoughts. Since I was not there, I will be general--
If my neighbor saw folks(of any color) fiddling around at my back door, I would want her to call the police.
If the officer arrived and asked me for proof of residency, I would think that it was a reasonable request and comply.
If the officer then wanted me to step outside, in order to check my home, to be certain that I was not under duress, I would again think that it was reasonable and comply.
If I were POTUS, I would not have used the word "stupidly."
I do not think it is a good idea to have bad blood with the folks that would be "first responders" to my home.
I do think there is enough blame to go around.
That is all.
