That's it.

Do better, men.

This hearing is happening tomorrow. After a year, and a lot stress and constant follow-up on my part.
I'm running out of spoons.

A cop assaulted me last year while I was working as a legal observer:

I am pushing for accountability in the sad / insufficient ways available to us.
