While we all watch the riots in Baltimore with some level of dread, it is a symbol of our society that people argue about broken windows and burnt down buildings over the dead bodies of human beings.
Kittenhead stands with the parents who have lost children to senseless violence.
To often the justice system fails the underprivileged, wether it be a person of color, the survivor of rape or a sexual minority. Failure to punish anyone but the victim is an added insult to the crime already perpetrated upon this person.
It is another betrayal when the perpetrator is an officer of the state. This happens all to often in minority communities and has been happening for way too long. Yes people are angry and they have good reason, this is decades of frustration and abuse that are being demonstrated in these riots. Try to understand what it would be like to fear for your own and your child's safety everyday from the very people that are suppose to protect you.
No not all police are guilty. However it just takes a few that coupled with a broken justice system creates a culture of fear. Just like a war zone, and it is horrid to live in a war zone.
So try to understand and open a dialogue about change for the future where people work with and do not fear the guardians of their communities.

Kittenhead had a lovely meeting with Rodney Bingenheimer on Wednesday evening at Canter's Deli. Best know as Rodney on the ROQ -- the soul of KROQ radio, one of the most iconic rock stations in the world, Rodney is one of the very few Radio DJs left on mainstream terrestrial radio to select his own playlists. This means he has introduced the world to numerous and varied acts including, Coldplay. Nirvana, No Doubt and The Runaways. Rodney is an institution and thankfully there is someone independent still listening to music outside of the industry hard sell. Thanks Rodney for a lovely engagement! xo KH
