Like most Americans I was raised with some sort of respect for those who place their lives on the line every day. Being a policeman is not the easiest of jobs, and it requires not merely physical ability but some knowledge of the human mind. A few days ago two policemen came across a woman who was in a stolen car. Alesia Christian has usually been involved in some form of criminal activity since there is something about stealing and daring police that provides an uplift to her life. She is a black woman. Of course, who cares what is her color of skin, but in these days being black is the easy way to go to jail or just get killed. Police officers, Jeffrey Cook and Omar Thyme also had black skins and the trio were living in the city of Atlanta.
At this point the story becomes somewhat bizarre. NO, Ms.Christian did not die. She was handcuffed with her hands behind her back. She was placed in the back of the patrol car. Within a few moments, she had freed her hand, and somehow produced a gun which she fired. Just how a prisoner whose hands were handcuffed behind her back was allowed to enter a patrol car without being checked for weapons is simply beyond my imagination. Anyway, no one is dead. Why is the question??
