Not sure when or where it is appropriate to publicly express discontent or emotions?
There are a myriad and growing times and places for demonstrations and you might be a little overwhelmed by the choices.
I recommend consulting with protesting and emotion expert John Chiv before you take the plunge next time let HumCo know of your complaints.
Ceremony over and Andrew told me she is protesting. I did not talk to either of them. They have chosen to air their grievances on blogs. Did they ever approach the Chief first? This was not the time and place to protest, much less express grief.
This above was his take on Jamie and Nikki’s lonely stand reminding those in the ceremony that one of ours was boxed into a corner where as the story goes, he made lethal mistake. In the infinite number of possible outcomes that night, this is where Sgt., and now Capt. Stephens’ decisions lead.
Janelle, Occupy, Jamie, Nikki or anyone else, please do consult with John Chiv first for any future demonstration. I’m not sure if he charges, but it would be a wise investment because clearly he is not against your causes, just against how you support your cause.
There is a proper way to bring up any discontents you might have with our governing elite, social or economic disparities, the safety of the public when we blindly promote peace officers who so clearly failed, etc. If you have any questions at all, I’m sure John will help guide you.
