Let’s Roll

7CBCE4C9-CA3C-4860-8008-F4FE4C8E5068Detective Ron Hayden was basking in the warmth and the glow from the bonfire. It had been a long day and he was considering heading back to his apartment to snooze for a couple of hours before meeting his girlfriend for dinner. But before he had a chance to exercise his plan, his partner, Jim Morrisey, came out of their car to let Hayden know that the two of them had been called to assist the uniforms at a sudden onslaught of neo-Nazi protesters who had suddenly converged on the park across from city hall.

“If I have to cancel yet another date with Cindy,” Hayden said, “she’s gonna torture me.”

“Ah, such is the life of a public servant,” Morrisey said, as he started the car and switched on the car’s lights and siren. “Let’s roll, detective.”

    Amen… that the loss of white privilege should not be perceived as oppression.
