As I have said many times, though I strive for accuracy, I sometimes get it wrong. Today was one of those times, and I must say that when I get it wrong, I get it WRONG! I thank Xena for pointing to the error of my ways!
In my post, A Tale of Two Verdicts I referred to Daniel Shaver as a black man murdered by a white police officer, but Daniel Shaver was, in fact, white, and if my brain had been functioning, I would have realized my error, for I even posted a picture of he and his family.
This in no way diminishes the injustice of his murder, but it does take the racial element out of the equation. I still would have included his story in this post, but I apologize for my error in his race. Please forgive my negligence in this, for it is truly inexcusable. Thanks to my reader, Xena, for catching my faux pas. I will be more careful in the future.
Thank you all for your patience.
