You Know Where To Find Me

Software development, running, music & beer

hard to understand


Over the weekend, a senseless act of violence hit very close to home. On the other side of town Saturday night, a police officer was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop. While this happened on the opposite side of town from where I live now, it’s in the same quiet suburban city that I live in. And it’s literally a 5 minute walk from where I used to live, a place I used to run by. It’s one of those things that always happens “somewhere else”, so when it’s that close to where you live, it’s a shock. I’ve always been against the death penalty, but it is an incident like this one that inevitably makes me question my position.

    I saw that on the news on Monday morning and I was deeply saddened by it too.
