commented on Here Are the Rules for the SPD Officers Who'll Soon Be Wearing Body Cameras
Let's keep in mind that the choking-to-death of Eric Garner by the NYPD was captured in full technicolor. And the Staten Island grand jury declined to indict. Body cams aren't a panacea. They must be used in conjunction with responsible judicial response, something we appear to lack in this country right now. Especially if you're not pasty white.

She was an ethereal presence here (in Madison Square Park, NY) for several months last year. She stood apart in a city full of public art. I miss her, but I'm glad she'll spend time in Seattle. Take care of her.
