A Cancer In Law Enforcement

PamKeith 200X265by Pam Keith, Esq. Candidate for US Senate 2016
There are now seven devastated families, and a shocked and horrified nation. My heart aches EQUALLY for those lost last night in Dallas, as for the young men shot in Louisiana and Minnesota. I know that every day, men and women in uniform step out into danger to protect and serve us, and I am eternally grateful for the multitude of good officers who keep us safe.

ChicagePoliceby Pam Keith - Candidate for U.S. Senate
Just when I think I can't be any more outraged at the prevalence of police shootings, just when I am sure that I have maxed out in terms of shock, sadness and outrage, something happens to make me even MORE enraged. The video of the shooting of Laquan McDonald is shattering.
