This Is Not Okay

Standard

I lost a coworker tonight.  A friend.
This is what I wrote.

At some point, reasonably soon, we’re going to do something about this.
At some point, reasonably soon,  this will cease to be okay.
At some point, reasonably soon, this will no longer be ‘the price of doing business.’
At some point, reasonably soon,  we’re going to call this what it is.
At some point, reasonably soon, we’re going to make this right.
No one should have to fight so hard with so little.
No one’s sacrifices should be in vain. 
Yet, every single officer injured/shot at/shot/killed here in the last 9 months, is a slap in the face.
A betrayal most vile.
At some point, reasonably soon, we need to decide that this is enough.
& we, as a city, will cede no more.
