    The author neglects to inform his readers that Michael was a thief and petty criminal I m black myself so I m not being racist He portrays the parents as if a great injustice was done to an angel The parents should be asking themselves, how did we allow our child grow up a criminal Yes there was racism but Michael was not innocent He did assault a police officer He did threaten a police officer He was shot because he did not cooperate with the police He was not an innocent bystander The author seems to ignore all of that and paints a slightly distorted picture of both the black and the white community.

    Captain Johnson is a brother in Christ, and I am thankful for his book There are so many questions I have for him..he recalls the story of his closest encounter of having to shoot a suspectif that suspect would have grabbed his gunwould it have been different.I once heard another minority officer tell a group of kids that the officer who shot Michael Brown was not a racists if you try to grab my gun, I don t care if you are stripped or poke dotyou are going to get shot But maybe this question and others don t matter Maybe that is why they are not addressedmaybe all that matters is for us to take hope from the leadership that Capt Johnson displayed, and to pray those lessons are remembered Thank you for sharing your story.
