Jail & Court support - to be continued
If it wasn't totally obvious to folks who was in power & had everything here & who had nothing, it was made clear the first few minutes of court when Katie took a sip of water from her water bottle. The old white male judge, claiming to be amongst the most forgiving in the system, ranted for at least 4 minutes about daring to drink out of a bottle in his courtroom. He directed his hostile admonishment toward the 2 rows of pinkers when he informed us that we were no longer out in the streets but in HIS courtroom.
Poor Katie turned redder than red & I felt her slip to the bottom of the bench, fearing she had just managed to get sentenced the maximum punishment for this crime.
