[D]o you feel like an outsider among your colleagues in the police force?
I do, very much so. I don’t relate with a lot of them, I haven’t lived similar lives to them.
It may be a combination of being African American and a woman, but there are certain events I am not included in, or even informed of.
Maybe in their growing up they didn’t have a lot of interactions with African-American females from the inner city - they’re uncomfortable with it, but instead of trying to address it, they avoid it, even fear it.
So when black people in Ferguson say the issue is not just about Michael Brown, but the way they have been treated as a community, do you agree?
