Thoughts on Dallas

Joel Etienne (Toronto, Canada)

Terribly chagrined by the loss of life in Dallas Texas, Minnesota and Louisiana this week. Communities of colour, like any other communities, cannot live in democracy, prosperity and safety, without first and foremost being able to live in security.

This absolutely necessitates and requires good policing. The shocking conclusion to this week of sorrow, is that both good people in police uniform, and good civilians were without justification victimized, and murdered leaving families and children, reeling, and a continent in sorrow.

I send my prayers to the good cops, the good community leaders, and to all the good civilians of all creeds who wish to live their lives in harmony.

I send my prayers and condolences to the families of the Dallas Police Officers who lost loved ones last night, and to the families of Mr. Philando Castile, a Montessori worker, and Mr. Alton Sterling.
