There is a racially heated trial going on in St. Petersburg, regarding a cop who killed an African American. When the incident happened riots shocked the community in 1996. Last night walking the dog I saw police helicopters overhead and was wondering what was going on. Now I know. I have some strong opinions about all of this but I'll keep it to myself.
I live not to far from the area in this picture. The neighborhood I live in is solidly middle class and racially mixed, probably the only part of town that's about 50/50 African American and white and very harmounous, but we border the part of town where there could be trouble, and the trial isn't even over.
