SWS Attended Natasha Hunter Vigil

I attended a vigil yesterday for New Orleans Police Department officer Natasha Hunter, who was killed this weekend by a drunk driver. I accompanied Brother Al Mims, New Orleans # 1 crimefighter & mentor.

Held in front of police headquarters, it hosted an unlikely cross section of urban residents, officers from various agencies and elected officials. Tragedy unites until agendas once more divide. We will see how far this case progresses.

Ironically, being a female officer is a tradition in her family. She left behind a 5 year old child and alot of adult grief. It underscored the need, which can't be stressed enough, for crime plagued communites to find common ground with law enforcement- before tragedy strikes!
