Atlanta Police Chief Resigns

This is no time to fold cards 

and go home, woman. Broken

are you? Too many death

threats. Men not afraid

to threaten and shoot.

One angry look too 

many. I cannot fault you.

I've walked away for less.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Rayshard Brooks fought cops with guns and rage, died in self-imagined fantasy that felt real as he bled out and died. Civil protest turned to civil war is an awful consequence of stupidity.  ~S~
