    I am back late Wednesday/early Thursday after an extended trip to the Pittsburgh area for a family wedding and visiting with relatives and friends. The above story affected my visit directly. It occurred in the hills where I grew up.

    Last night, four of us were headed to a pizza restaurant in East Pittsburgh, a favorite from childhood and growing up. We'd been planning it all week, and headed out after my friend's wife got off work. We drive east in what for Pittsburgh is a driving rainstorm, but in coastal Virginia is known as "rain." About half a mile from our destination, we came to a reed light where several cop cars were parked, lights flashing. A large trailer truck was trying around in the intersection and reversing field. Another cop car drove toward us and against traffic, parked his car at a slant directly at us. WTF? I moved to turn around by moving to the left lane and asked a cop what the issue was. (This are a received national notoriety some weeks ago when landslides demolished houses and blocked PA Route 30.) The cop said people ahead were demonstrating. In a driving rain. I wondered what they could be possibly demonstrating about in these conditions.

    We turned around and left after a futile attempt to reach our destination another way.

    It was only when we got back to my friend's house that I learned of the execution of the young man, shot in the back while running away from a traffic stop. The kid attended the same high school that my friend and I did. He was from all accounts a good, bright kid. The cop is reported to be being treated for "shock," a ruse obviously plucked from the police union manual on how to execute the unarmed black American without consequence. I expect he will be placed on "administrative (meaning paid) leave,"  and receive a vacation for several months, before his pro forma hearing and exoneration.

    Life in Trump's America.
