Too Obvious to Ignore

First there is no indictment of Ferguson, MO, Officer Darren Wilson, who killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown with six bullets in August.
     Now there is not indictment of New York City Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo, whose illegal chokehold on Eric Garner, who was being arrested for once again selling loose cigarettes, killed Garner in Staten Island in August.
     How many black men -- especially young black men -- must dies at the hands of white policemen before the entire nation believes there is a pattern here -- a pattern that indicates something is terribly wrong with the law enforcement scenario of our nation?
     The New York Times has a raft of editorials and articles tonight, rapidly following this afternoon's announcement that the grand jury will not indict Officer Pantaleo. I'm going to read them eagerly. I'm also going to write to my senators and congressperson.
     We need a national movement. These incidents can't be viewed as isolated. That's what African Americans have been saying for years. Maybe all of us nice white folks will start to see these tragedies for what they are: an indication that our police force has to change its culture or the relationship between our societal segments will break down. No nation can afford this persistent injustice.

I remember when I was in high school, science was one of my favorite subjects. I remember when we talked about this exact topic regarding the changes that matter goes through. Though what you have talked about is more on its advanced aspects, the basics are still covered. This is indeed an informative post regarding changes in matter. I hope that you would post more stuff, especially about chemistry. Thank you for reminding me of my high school science journey.
