There’s this quote from the book “Two Badges the lives of Mona Ruiz” and it really reminds me of something. But the quote is, “The fact that i wear a police uniform now is a betrayal of sorts”. This reminded me of this boy that was a gang member but changed into a cop. His gang did not like him anymore.

My group member Daeja has a quote from the book is “Soldiers for Christ”. She says that a lie because of all of the police brutality in Oakland.

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
