I have The Hanging Tree stuck in my head.
There are a lot of things going on with Ferguson right now. There are a lot of angry people, and nobody knows the exact truth. There is Darren Wilson's testimony, and conflicting testimony from Michael Brown's friend Dorian Johnson. What the situation has done is spur public discussion of race relations.
It reminds me of Something Bad from Wicked.
Only rumors - but still -
Enough to give pause
To anyone with paws
Something bad is happening in Oz
Something bad? Happening in Oz?
Under the surface
Behind the scenes
(spoken) Sorry, "Bad".
There are strange things going on right now. I just hope that we can find a peaceful solution that is respectful to all parties. I think that one step forward for all of us would be to have police officers wear body cameras, which is a call from both sides of the case in Ferguson. Body cameras can reduce citizen complaints by quite a bit.
