The Effects of Officer Involved Shootings On Police Officers
In this letter I discuss how the recent officer involved shootings have effected how police officers may react when they are confronted with a dangerous subject. Shootings of black men by the police are frequently in the media and are often seen as unnecessary by the public.

Standing Rock Reservation, Oceti Sakowin Camp.

Those who have the courage to hold the vigil of consciousness momentarily found comfort when President Obama intervened in September, after the Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) moved to grant permission to an oil company to cont...
