8. Rioters tearing through our neighborhoods deeply affected my SO

The rioters were understandably angry that our little city didn't bring murder charges against the third fatality caused by one of our cops.

Yet, for the rioters and much of the US the details remained under a shade. That killer cop was in fact a black cop, and most of the rioters didn't know that. They were out to avenge themselves against oppressors. Of course, the committee that chose not to bring charges were 7 people in a population of 35K.

That was Oct of 2020, The killer cop is now a county deputy sheriff in an adjacent county

But here things have changed for the worse. In this neighborhood of mostly elderly women, there is fear of noises that come in the night.
