from Huff Post:
As a retired NYPD police captain turned preacher and #blacklivesmatter protest supporter, I find myself in an interesting position today.
I stand on both sides of the so-called “blue line,” placing one foot in the world of the NYPD furious over the murder of two of our own and another foot in with the black and brown people of this city angry with the senseless deaths of young people at the hands of the police.
My overlapping identity were never as painfully apparent than in the last couple of days when Officer Rafael Ramos and Officer Wenjian Liu were brutally murdered while sitting in their patrol car. These brave men, who decided to risk their lives to protect ours, leave their families and the entire police department devastated.
