It’s very hot here this time of year, so I stay cooped up inside all day and then go for long walks around town in the evenings.

In a residential area across the road from ours, I just saw a white middle-aged cop chatting with 3 black teenagers. The cop showed them how his computer works and what the dash cam does. And then the kids asked the cop to play basketball with them. He dropped his vehicle, with the computer still on, and started shooting hoops with them.

I made a circle around the neighborhood, and they are still playing, laughing, having fun.

Ideally, of course, there’d be no reason for me to notice this scene.

  1. I want to see more stories like this and fewer about police shooting something else with black teens involved.
