Burning Down The House

Burning Down The House

Burning Down The House

This is a section of a large wall mural a few blocks south of my home. I marvel at the artistry of wall murals but am disturbed by the content of the image. I have family on the police force so have a slight understanding of the risk they take every day to keep our streets safe. I can also sort of understand the perspective of those feeling oppressed. It makes me sad that they feel the police are out to get them rather than help them. It makes me sad that they feel they have no recourse for justice but to revert to violence. It makes me sad that some rotten eggs give the entire group a bad name.
