Talking about the recent cases of police brutality, the killing of two Black men, Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY, and Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.  Reading from my collection of poetry about police misconduct, "Sometimes Blue Knights Wear Black Hats."

"Sometimes Blue Kights Wear Black Hats:" is a collection of poetry about law enforcement excesses.  Most of the poems were inspired by actual cases from around the country.  The author did not set out to compile a collection of these poems, but more and more, nearly every day, another case of law enforcement's excessive use of force was reported in the Media.  The author also did not set out to demonize law enforcement, but focused on those cases where things went terribly wrong, for a number or reasons.
