Nite of the Zombie Police
Then I noticed who they were:
cop cars. cop trucks. cop trailers. and more cop cars.
I read the signs:
Vallejo. Fairfield. Vacaville.
command center. control center. first response.
emergency. transport. armored trucks. trailers.
some with just symbols; some unmarked.
but steady streams of police. after police. after police.
Very foreboding as they stealthy crept along, not breaking rank, stretching for over 4 miles until I turned off.
I was hoping some huge disaster was happening like a rupture in the ocean floor and the police were heading off to take care of it. Yet I was dreading they were heading to Oakland to perpetuate more violence.
I fervently hope that no more young - or old - men or women are physically hurt tonite or in the coming days.
And I hope we will all work to end the violence and help each other survive, and heal from this violence of anti-justice and racism.
