I work in the behavioral field as my paying gig, because we all know writing is a bit unstable. I had to go see one of my clients in the school setting.
I happened upon a game of cops and robbers. It was a game of nine (cops) kids chasing one (robber) kid. In this game they took to yelling, â€œPut your hands up!! Spread ’em!!! Put your hands up!!!â€ and the robber running. The game ended with the cops yelling at the kid and beating him and stomping on him.
In the middle of the stomping I asked, â€œIs this what you think the police act like?â€ And they said, â€œYeah.â€
