This was a human being with a name. How dare the Chief of Police lable this person, this human being, "a subject" ! Jack was not a "subject," like some word in a sentence. He was a man, with a story, a whole sad life story. Whatever all his various failings may have been in this life, at least give him the dignity of calling him by name: Jack. To depersonalize him is to continue a misbegotten righteousness that is callous, inhumane and self-serving. And when we loose our humanity....we loose our soul. There are clearly deep resentments and a frigthening sense of entitlement within the police bureau...all around, there is much healing to be done. Can our city do it?
