On June 28, 2008 Major Christopher Bonds was wrongfully detained, arrested and later indicted for a crime he never committed. His wife's great Aunt who had been previously diagnosed with dementia alleged that Major Bonds choked her as well as elbowed her in the chest. Most people who are familiar with Alzheimer or dementia patients understand these patients often make up events and actually believe they occurred. However, the Chicago police department did not thoroughly investigate these accusations, nor did they take into account the aunt's mental condition at the time of the report. When Major Bonds made numerous attempts to explain to detectives what had actually occurred, he was left with the impression the...y were not at all concerned about the truth. These false accusations have lead to years of Major Bonds fighting in court against the word of an Alzheimer patient whom he loved and cared about . The whole ordeal has left Major Bonds exhausted mentally, physically and financially. He has spent over $100,000 in legal fees. After a lengthy court battle this case was eventually dismissed. However, the same judge that dismissed the case has refused to expunge Major Bonds arrest record.
Major Christopher Bonds will tell in his own words how much this has actually cost him. We understand this wrongful arrest forced him into bankruptcy and almost ruined his military career.

Many of us have an idea of what we want to do when we grow up from the time we are small children. Some of us have experiences along the way that inform our future careers. Some of us just graduate from high school and start collge with no idea. Some of us choose majors, some majors are chosen for us by others. Regardless of how it happened, we have a major.
How do you know that major is the right one for you? Have you really stepped back to think about what you enjoy doing and what you would do if no one paid you to do it? What strengths and abilities translate into majors? What is a good fit?
This episode of Tassel to Tassel doesn't have the answers to those questions, but it does have suggestions for how to find them. Tune in to find out how.
"When The Drum Major Died" by Anjulle Floyd
Martin Luther King, Jr. has begun laying out plans for his Poor People’s Campaign. Florina Austin, newly married, spies a woman sitting on the steps leading up to the verandah where Florina and her husband will live. The woman’s uncanny knowledge of the space that Florina will inhabit leaves her suspicious.
The following Sunday after church, Florina witnesses the woman, she has come to know as Agnes, caress Redmond’s cheek. The look in Redmond’s eyes betrays longing. Florina and Agnes are neighbors. Their husbands, Negro doctors in Poinsettia, NC, hold prominent positions in the social and political life of their community. When Agnes flees to Memphis and joins the Sanitation Workers Protests, all are aghast, none more than Florina. As they move towards the fateful day Dr. Martin Luther King is killed, Florina learns that marriage exposes the vulnerabilities of all who pledge their trough and body. It casts an even greater shadow upon the ones who vow love unto death, and do not deliver what they have promised. When the Drum Major Died shows what happens when we resist change in favor of worn out tradition, but also what can and does occur when we open our hearts and embrace the words, “ … be first in love … be first in generosity … He who is greatest among you shall be your servant. …”
