This is an outrage. This is disgusting. I can’t even imagine what they must be feeling. These are some of the phrases that have been passing in and out of my mind for the past few days. At this point, we are all aware of the protests that are going on across the nation. With the goal to bash racial injustice and spread the message that actions towards people of color by police, such as the murder of George Floyd and countless others, these protests are essential for reformation. But our people on the front line of these protests are being incarcerated.
