That incident with the officer is really disturbing. Way to intensify the problem!
I too wrote a note to the police chief. I applaud the officer's commitment to equality, but that's NOT a way to go about it. Said so.
After some debate, I decided to remove CitizenLink from the cc line, where it automatically popped up. Considered letting them see someone from "the other side" speaking out, but ultimately, I don't want them to have my email address.
